Dark Ages - SOULFLY

It's been a while since I dove headfirst into a SOULFLY album. After the self-titled debut and "Primitive", I stopped paying attention and missed out on "3" and "Prophecy". I half-expected album number five to be a watered down, more commercially oriented, "nu" type of album. To say I was "shocked" at the blisteringly metallic ...
