Soulfly Searching For New Drummer, Saluting Snot As Double-CD Arrives

Fans eagerly awaiting the follow-up to Soulfly's 1998 self-titled debut album have at least one new offering to content themselves with while the band searches for a new drummer.

The band recently released a double-CD Digipak version of its self-titled 1998 debut album. The collection carries the material found on "Soulfly" and also boasts a second CD chock full of previously unreleased live tracks and remixes.

A spokesperson for the band says that the search to replace drummer Roy Mayorga (who left the band in July) is down to a handful of candidates, and that guitarist-vocalist Max Cavalera is expected to reveal the new drummer at his daughter's 16th birthday party on November 19 (a backyard party with Deadlights that is not open to the public).

The new drummer will join Cavalera, bassist Marcello D. Rapp, and former Snot guitarist Mikey Doling (who recently moved from Soulfly touring guitarist to full-fledged member) in the band's new line-up.

In the

meantime, Max and Marcelo recently worked on a track called "Catch A Spirit" for an upcoming tribute album dedicated to late Snot singer Lynn Strait. The singer was killed in December of last year when his car was involved in a six-vehicle accident while in route to his home in Santa Barbara, California. At the time, the band had released only one album on Geffen Records and had begun work on a second.
