SOULFLY/CAVALERA CONSPIRACY guitarist Marc Rizzo has announced a NYC listening party for his new LP ROTATION, in stores now via Combat Records. The listening party will take place this Friday, 4/6, at DUFF’s Alcohol Abuse Center in Brooklyn. Rizzo, on tour starting April 17with Soulfly, has additionally announced two FYEinstore meet and greet performances, Sunday 4/22at Philadelphia Mills FYE, and Saturday 5/19 at Arizona Mills FYE.
ROTATION, featuring cover art by Melody Myers (Escape The Fate, Combat Bullets), is the 4th solo release for Rizzo, following 2004’s COLOSSAL MYOPIA, 2006’s THE ULTIMATE DEVOTION (both released by legendary shred label SHRAPNEL), and the independently released 2010 LP LEGIONNAIRE.
Produced by Chris “Zeuss” Harris (Hatebreed, Soulfly, Rob Zombie, Chimaira), and featuring cover art by Melody Myers (Escape The Fate), ROTATION is a blistering showcase of Rizzo’s pummeling eclectic diversity, showcased on album tracks including “Spectral Intensities”, “Thrash Boogie”, and title track “Rotation”, combining Rizzo’s penchant for pummeling, low-end riffs, with thrash-intensive leads and heavy latin flavor.

Originally a member of New Jersey latin-metal favorites ILL NINO, appearing on their classic 2001 Roadrunner release REVOLUTION REVOLUCION, and the 2003 follow-up CONFESSION, Rizzo joined SOULFLY in 2004, and has since appeared on all subsequent Soulfly records including; PROPHECY, DARK AGES, CONQUER, OMEN, ENSLAVED, SAVAGES, and ARCHANGEL. In 2007, Rizzo became a member of CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, the side project of Sepultura co-founders, brothers Max and Iggor Cavalera, and has performed on all Cavalera Conspiracy releases including INFLIKTED, BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA, PANDEMONIUM, and the critically acclaimed 2017 release PSYCHOSIS.
Says Rizzo, “I spent a couple years talking to David (Ellefson) and Thom (Hazaert) about releasing Rotation and when the COMBAT thing came up it just really felt right. I have known both David and Thom, literally for the better part of 2 decades, and I’m really excited to have such a killer team putting their stamp on my record.”
