In a recent interview with MetalAssault.com, Soulfly guitarist Marc Rizzo discussed the bands forthcoming seventh studio album, "Omen" and how writing the record was different from previous albums. An excerpt from the interview reads as follows:

Julia: (New Soulfly album) Omen is scheduled for release on May 25th. What really stands out about this album for you?

Marc: "It's right to the point. There's a real hardcore, punk vibe to the record. Short tunes. This record is kind of different for us and I think the fans are going to like it a lot."

Julia: When you were writing the album did you have it in mind that you wanted short songs, or was that more of an unplanned thing? Did you go into it with specific musical goals in mind?

Marc: "I think Max's goal was to put out a record that seemed a little more to-the-point, a real thrash metal or hardcore vibe. I know he definitely wanted to go in that direction when we started making the record, so I guess in the end it turned out to be like that."
