Brazilian metal titans Soulfly have covered Led Zeppelin's 'Four Sticks' as a bonus track for their upcoming seventh studio album 'Omen.'


A recent studio update from the band confirmed that 'Four Sticks' - which was a b-side to Zep's 1971 single 'Rock and Roll' - will appear alongside Sepultura's 'Refuse/Resist' and Excel's 'Your Life, My Life' in the bonus tracks.

Recorded at Edge of the Earth Studios in Los Angeles, 'Omen' is released through Roadrunner Records on May 3rd.

The record features guest appearances from Dillinger Escape Plan’s Greg Puciato and Prong’s Tommy Victor, while Soulfly singer Max Cavalera's sons Zyon and Igor appear on two of the previously mentioned cover versions.

Cavakera said of the collaborations: “The first one is a song with Tommy Victor from Prong sharing vocals on a song called ‘Lethal Injection.’ The other is ‘Rise of the Fallen,’ with shared vocals from Greg Puciato, Dillinger Escape Plan's singer.

“I also recorded two B-sides with both of my sons playing drums. Igor Cavalera plays on Exel's ‘Your Life, My Life,’ and Zyon Cavalera plays on Sepultura's ‘Refuse/Resist’.”

The album's track listing is as follows:

Bloodbath & Beyond
