Blabbermouth reports Max Cavalara, Soulfly frontman has posted a four track demo recording of a new song, entitled “Inflikted (After the Slaughter)”. The track is posted on the official Soulfly website, you will be able to preview and purchase the track between 1st May until 1st June.

The website states:

By allowing fans to hear his work as it is in progress, Max wants give his fans a better idea of how he writes, and he hopes to expand views of both writing and recording techniques. Max has used 4-track demos to write out his songs for the last 20 years, and over the course of the recording period, the simple structures captured in these primitive outtakes eventually morph into the complex 48-track recording that eventually hits record shop shelves all over the globe. Often Max records these songs immediately as he is thinking of them, which was the case with this song. In fact, Max was so frantic to get this song to tape that he reversed the pickup on his pair headphones to have something to scream his vox into because he didn't have time to search out a microphone when the vision came to his mind – a technique which, in the end, seems to only add to the aggressiveness of the song.

If you have been following the release of this 4-track closely, you have probably already noticed that Max has decided to change the working title of the song from “After the Slaughter” to “Inflikted (After the Slaughter)”. In the weeks and months to come, its is likely that this song and all of its counterparts that will eventually make it on to the next Soulfly album at the end of the year will go through many more changes – both in name and composition – and for this album, Max wants his fans to be along for the ride. It begins now!

Max has decided to allow fans to view his own handwritten lyrics and notes for “Inflikted (After the Slaughter)”, as well, and you can view these in each of the pictures at this location. Stay tuned to the site for more recording updates and go here to purchase “Inflikted (After the Slaughter)”. Proceeds for this song are donated to Doctors Without Borders; go to their site and feel free to donate on your own time.
