Written by on July 8, 2022

The Costin Chioreanu-created animated music video for the SOULFLY song “Filth Upon Filth” can be seen below. The track is taken from the band’s twelfth album, “Totem”, which will be released on August 5 via Nuclear Blast. The follow-up to 2018’s “Ritual” was recorded at Platinum Underground in Mesa, Arizona by John Aquilino and Arthur Rizk with assistance from John Powers. Produced by mainman Max Cavalera alongside Arthur Rizk (KREATORMUNICIPAL WASTECODE ORANGE),the LP boasts guest appearances from John Powers (ETERNAL CHAMPION),Chris Ulsh (POWER TRIP),and John Tardy (OBITUARY). Rizk was also responsible for playing lead guitar on the record. The artwork for the album was created by James Bousema.

Max comments: “‘Filth Upon Filth’ was the first track unleashed to the Tribe last year. Costin has created an amazing, savage rendition of the song! This is a song made by a headbanger for headbangers!”

“Filth Upon Filth” is the follow-up to SOULFLY‘s previous single, “Scouring The Vile”, which was made available last month. Max told The Bogcast about that track: “We lost so many good people [to] cancer. I remember when I was writing the record, L.G. [Petrov] from ENTOMBED passed away, and Chuck [Schuldiner] from DEATH [died 20 years ago], and also family members that succumbed to cancer. And so I was, like, ‘I wanna write a song against cancer’ — a ‘fuck you, cancer’-type letter, like a letter to cancer: ‘Fuck you. You’re not gonna bring all of us down. We’re gonna fight you.’ That’s one of the heaviest songs on the record.”
