For his fourth album fronting Soulfly, Max Cavalera once again changed the line-up to include former Il Niño guitarist Marc Rizzo, former Megadeth bassist Dave Ellefson and once-former Soulfly drummer Joe Nuñez. Despite the new incarnation, the first half of Prophecy
sounds like everything to be found on Soulfly's first three releases. By the time “I Believe” spins, however, it becomes clear that Cavalera did a helluva lot of soul-searching in order to craft the last six songs. And save for a throwaway cover of Helmet's “In the Meantime,” Prophecy's
second half makes the world unsafe for lesser heavy bands.
