Marc Rizzo Thinks He Should've Quit SOULFLY "Five Or Six Years Ago"

"Honestly, I think I stayed too long. I probably should have quit."

Guitarist Marc Rizzo quit Soulfly earlier this year. Rizzo said Soulfly didn't support him throughout the pandemic, while Soulfly's Max Cavalera said Rizzo was "trying to get fans to be against me and make him the victim." Now in the latest episode of The Ex-Man podcast with Doc Coyle, Rizzo said he should've quit the band a few years back. He adds he felt obligated to stay, and didn't want to screw over his ex-bandmates.

"Honestly, I think I stayed too long. I probably should have quit — I wanted to quit about five [or] six years ago. That's when things, in my opinion, just started to go downhill. There's a lot of things that are just obvious, again, if you watch the live show that I'm not even nitpicking about — the fans are talking about. If you go to any message board, the fans always talk about the same things about the live show. I think five or six years ago, I really probably should have split.

"But I felt bad, and I felt I had some loyalty to everybody and I didn't wanna leave everybody hanging. Obviously, I had a major part in the riffing in the live show and on the records. But, thankfully, everything went down the way it did. COVID opened my eyes to a lot of things, and I'm in a way better place now."

Rizzo recently released his new solo single "Rotation" that you can check out here. Soulfly also debuted a new song called "Filth Upon Filth" live from their upcoming, currently-unannounced new album.
