"Soulfly VI" is the closing track of the album Conquer. This is the final track of the album's standard edition and is the sixth self-titled instrumental track by the band. The progressive melodies of this song resemble that of Steve Vai's album Passion and Warfare. It is unique for self-titled instrumentals to contain significant influences of hard rock and even hints of metal in them. It is the only band-titled song where four-string guitar is used, which is typically used for heavy metal Soulfly songs. The rhythms in this song may give some listeners a feeling of being out in nature.

Since Florida has rich array of nature sounds, Max Cavalera, who's in Florida at that time recording Conquer in the Porch Studio in Orlando, decided to record this instrumental in a swamp near the studio to capture environmental sounds used for background flavoring of this song, especially crickets, which can be heard chirping at the end of this song.
