Best Soulfly Albums

The Top Ten
1 Dark Ages

This takes what Prophecy started with and improves it even more. It was a close one between Prophecy and Dark Ages, but this just edges it. Babylon is one of the best Soulfly songs ever.

Soulfly may have better songs, but this album is one of the most complete pieces of art I've heard. I love every second of it. The atmosphere of this album is incredible.

Ever since I got it on vinyl, it's been my favorite. Beast of an album.

2 Prophecy

"Prophecy," "Dark Ages," and "Conquer" are the opus magnum of Soulfly music. Previous albums sound like demo versions compared to them. Later albums are just repeating this "golden trio."

Atmospheric and experimental, all the way great. The best Soulfly album for me.

This album is so amazing and starts with one of the best Soulfly songs ever.

3 Conquer

I love the intensity of this album. The speed, the rhythm, the drumming, and the combinations of beats and tones. Each track complements the next.

Lyrically, it's very typical Soulfly, almost parodying themselves but in the most satisfying way possible.

All songs are great on this album. There is no weak moment. The combination of thrash, death, and groove metal with world music elements is impressive.

The tempo of the album changes all the time, sometimes fast, sometimes slow and loud. This is the crowning achievement of Soulfly music.

4 Primitive

New metal music. Easy, simple melody songs. Better than the first album.

5 Soulfly

The first album is my favorite, followed by Dark Ages, then Enslaved and Conquer. Ritual is awesome too, but nothing beats the first one.

Original is always the best. Picks up where Roots left off.

6 Savages

This album has very strong music like Cannibal Holocaust and Fallen, but it also has weak moments. It has the best lyrics of all the albums. It is also the heaviest and most brutal in the Soulfly discography.

7 Omen

Album for fans. It has decent but average Soulfly thrash-death songs.

8 3

This album is great. It includes some great songs like Brasil and Seek 'n' Strike. The cover songs on the deluxe CD I have are great.

9 Enslaved

If you're a fan of the old Sepultura records (when Max was still in the band), then I highly recommend this album. It has a relentless nature that's just hard to resist. They also got Travis Ryan from Cattle Decapitation to perform guest vocals on this one, which is amazing.

This album is underrated even on this list.

Very good and fast thrash album. One of the better Soulfly albums. Only the world music elements are outdated. They don't sound as interesting as on previous albums.

10 Archangel

Archangel is heavy as hell, with the best Soulfly lyrics, great vocals, and stunning instrumentals. Deserves top 5.

Love the religious overtones. Christianity never sounded so metal.

The Contenders
11 Ritual

Better than the previous album. "Ritual" is pretty heavy and fast! Good idea mixing tribal shouts with breakdowns like in "The Summoning." What a killer song! Max shows that, after these better and worse years, he still has something to feed us with. This is one of the best Soulfly albums, in my opinion. SOULFLY TRIBE4LIFE!

Just awesome. This one deserves top 5! More and more like death metal.

12 Tribe E.P.

Just an EP of remixes and live tracks (and Tribe, of course). That's why it's at the bottom of this list.
