The Soulfly frontman was diagnosed with a case of Bell’s Palsy last week. He was put in antibiotics and is expected to make a full recovery soon. Here is the quote from Max regarding this illness:
“I woke up one morning after coming home from Australia and the whole room was spinning. I looked at Gloria and said, ‘There’s something wrong here.’ She said, ‘Your face looks weird.’ I went to the mirror and couldn’t move half of my face. We thought I was having a stroke, so we rushed to the hospital. I learned my condition was called Bell’s Palsy but I’d never heard of that. It’s a f—ng weird disease. My right eye won’t blink, and half of my face feels like I’ve been punched by Mike Tyson! It hurts like hell. Anyway, I am leaving for Brazil. The show must go on and this Bell’s Palsy ain’t gonna stop a metalhead from his duties. I hope I’ll be ok and thanks to all the fans concerned with me. Stay Metal.”
This comes at possibly the worst time it could since Soulfly will be releasing their new album “Enslaved” via Roadrunner Records in just a few weeks on March 13. But the true metal warrior that he is i’m sure he will carry on and recover doing what he does best, being fucking metal!
