Soilwork – Övergivenheten

Bjorn? Sven? Sylvain? David? Bastian? Rasmus? Good, you’re all here. Before we get started; Take off the chauffer’s cap, please Bjorn. We’re talking about Soilwork, not The Night Flight Orchestra. You should have known that. I thought I put it on the Outlook Calendar invite. Anyway, I’ve gathered all of you here to let you […]

Soilwork – A Whisp of the Atlantic EP

It’s been a weird year for everyone, but a good one for Soilwork fans. If you’ve been following the band on social media, you’ve enjoyed a steady drip of new tracks/videos throughout 2020: “Desperado,” “Feverish,” “Death Dealer,” and “The Nothingness and the Devil.” (There was also a new Night Flight Orchestra album back in February, […]

Soilwork – Verkligheten

Creating anything is hard, even if you’re a master of your craft. I don’t care if you’re Spielberg, Scorsese, Pixar, or Stephen King. You still need to take your raw, half-formed idea, and then use all of your skill, experience, judgment, and persistence to shape it into something that measures up to or surpasses your […]

Soilwork – Death Resonance

If only other bands’ cutting room floors looked like Soilwork’s. When they released The Living Infinite in 2013, I marveled at how many superb songs they had turned out during those writing sessions – enough for an absurdly generous double album that was also my #1 pick for the year. And then some, it turns out, when they […]

Soilwork – The Living Infinite

Wow. x2. Soilwork have returned with their strongest release to date, and they’ve done it with a double album. This means they’ve just topped themselves – and likely the rest of the entire melodeath genre – twice. These two albums coalesce everything that’s always been dazzling about Soilwork, from the early shredfest barrage of Steelbath Suicide and The Chainheart […]

SOILWORK’s ‘The Panic Broadcast’ reviewed

Soilwork hasn’t kept much of noise as of late. The band’s previous album, Sworn to a Great Divide, divided the audience into two; some claiming it to be a fresh album for the band, whereas others were not as polite in their views. The Panic Broadcast is the band’s first new musical output in three years. Read’s review to find out if it was worth the wait.

Soilwork – The Panic Broadcast

Looks like the guys in Soilwork have finally dug themselves out of their hole. Opener “Late for the Kill, Early for the Slaughter” is the fastest, most relentless thing they’ve done in a long time, and from that very first blastbeat, it’s clear that Soilwork wants you to forget about Sworn to a Great Divide. […]

Soilwork – Sworn to a Great Divide

I started my “extreme” metal listening in 2000 with Soilworks crowning achievement The Chainheart Machine. Never really hearing anything like that before I was a total Soilworker. Huge fan! I remember anxiously awaiting 2001’s A Predators Portrait and being thoroughly let down by the change in direction. From there on I have never been able […]
