Soulfly surprise released a new live album titled Live Ritual NYC MMXIX, and is streaming both the full effort and a video for "The Summoning" above. The EP was recorded at The Gramercy in New York City on February 11, 2019 and was mixed and mastered by Charles Elliott (Abysmal Dawn). Cover art is comprised of photos by Rodrigo Fredes.
"New York is a mesmerizing city; the city that never sleeps! I always look forward to playing in NY," said Max Cavalera. "The Gramercy is a great venue and the Soulfly crowd was in the trench frontlines of a battlefield, crowded and moving like some kind of tribe. I hope this unforgettable night of metal in NY can uplift you during this quarantine. Start a pit in your living room! I'm in quarantine too, and together, with metal, we will all get through this! Let the ritual begin!"
