Tuesday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – Circo Voador and Blog n Roll productions present an epic metal show tonight in Lapa, featuring Soulfly and Suicidal Tendencies.
Soulfly is a metal band formed in 1997 in Phoenix, Arizona. The original lyrical content revolved around spirituality and religious themes, with later albums encompassing other themes including war, violence, aggression, hatred and anger. Led by former Sepultura frontman Max Cavalera, the band incorporates many styles of metal with Brazilian tribal and world music.
