"El Comegente" is a track of the Soulfly album Savages, released in 2013. According to Max Cavalera, this song details about the 1980s Venezuelan serial killer and cannibal Dorangel Vargas, who is an El comegente, meaning "people eater" in Spanish. Cavalera growls in the Morbid Visions-like style in Portuguese, while bassist Tony Campos screams in Spanish while playing bass. Campos was the first to suggest the song about that serial killer, and helped Max write lyrics in Spanish and Portuguese.

With the duration of eight minutes and seventeen seconds, "El Comegente" is the longest track of the album and the third longest Soulfly song. It first plays death grooves for the first five minutes of this lengthy track before turning over to Led Zeppelin-like acoustic folk section with utilizations of Campos' acoustic bass and Rizzo's flamenco guitar producing melodies reminiscent of the Sepultura song "Kaiowas". The part has similar rhythm to the acoustic section of the Prophecy song "Mars", calling it "Mars Part Two" by Marc Rizzo.

Lyrics Edit

No soy un pinche loco
Solo quiero comer gente
Con tubo para lanza
Un chingazo, caes en mi panza

El comegente
Hannibal Lecter de los Andes
El comegente
Hannibal Lecter de los Andes
El comegente
Hannibal, animal, canibal
El comegente
Hannibal, animal, canibal
El comegente

Era um mendigo
Viviendo do lixo
Se tornou canibal
Sua alma e do mal

El comegente
Hannibal Lecter de los Andes
El comegente
Hannibal Lecter de los Andes
El comegente
Hannibal, animal, canibal
El comegente
Hannibal, animal, canibal
El comegente

Latino sujo com sangue maldito
Vai se acabar todo fudido
Vagabundo e salvagem
O inferno espera voce

Carne rica y deliciosa
Comer a gente es lo normal
Pendejos, nunca me dejen ir
Si salgo, te voy a comer a ti
