BMG is going to re-issue four of Soulfly’s albums this summer.
The company is scheduled to release the new box set, The Song Remains Insane June 17 on CD and vinyl. The collection culls the band’s first four albums — Soulfly, Primitive, 3, and Prophecy — into one collection. All four albums will be presented in their standard release editions and will be complimented with an extra disc of bonus tracks, previously released on various pressings of those albums.
Many of the bonus tracks featured in the extra disc are actually featured in the expanded edition of the band’s debut self-titled album, which was released in 1998. Those tracks are ‘Cagnaceiro,’ ‘Ain’t No Feeble Bastard,’ ‘The Possibility of Life’s Destruction,’ ‘Tribe (Tribal Terrorism Mix),’ ;Quilombo (Zumbi Dub Mix),’ and ‘Umbabarauma (World Cup Mix)’. The disc also features bonus tracks from Primitive in the form of ‘Terrorist (Total Destruction Mix)’ and ‘Soulfire.’
Pulled from the Japanese release of 3 is the band’s cover of Pailhead’s ‘I Will Refuse.’ Speaking of covers, the band’s cover of Black Sabbath’s ‘Under The Sun,’ which was featured in a special digipack release of 3 is also included in the bonus disc. The lone previously unreleased track is ‘Berimbau Jam.’
