Soilwork announce new drummer, Bastian Thusgaard

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, April 19, 2017 at 9:32 AM (PST)

Technical , extreme, hooky and accessible all without ever sucking? Of course we are discussing mighty Soilwork. When their former drummer Dirk peaced out (to inferior, yet more popular) band Megadeth, it left a big hole in Soilwork. The band have a shit ton of songs and any one of them presents many challenges to even a skilled player. Listen to, say, “Enemies In Fidelity” on recent masterpiece The Ride Majestic alone and tell me that a lot of drummers come to mind who could smoke that song in their sleep. Short list, huh? Well, it seems the Swedes have finally found a new member who fits the bill! Bastian Thusgaard, welcome aboard one of the greatest acts in metal!

Read a statement from the band and Bastian below.

Album Review: Soilwork – “The Ride Majestic”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, August 31, 2015 at 3:13 PM (PST)

Soilwork-The-Ride-Majestic-800x800

In Daniel Barenboim’s Music Quickens Time a passage popped out to me this morning:

Another inevitable constraint on free thought is the attempt to facilitate the condition of human existence by constructing a system of belief that renders the act of questioning futile.

Wow. That statement could apply to social conditioning as well as, heck, the entire careers of Soilwork (and definitely In Flames)! A lot of the Swedish bands built their cities on rock n roll only to be turned on by some fans later for expanding their horizons (aka adding more melody or technical/progressive passages).

“Death In General”, the third track on Soilwork’s 10th (!!) studio album The Ride Majestic, is just the latest proof that Soilwork are capable of so much more than just a Steelbath Suicide solution.

Pre-Order HERE.

Anglo-Swedish modern metal powerhouse SONIC SYNDICATE have released the official music video for the second single, ‘Before You Finally Break’, off the band’s upcoming self-titled, fifth album. Sonic Syndicate marks the band’s first release in four years after taking a break after touring the world in support of 2010’s critically acclaimed We Rule The Night. 





After the release of their first album, Eden Fire (2005), SONIC SYNDICATE arose from the pulsating underground in 2007 when Nuclear Blast put out their stunningly intense second album Only Inhuman. The band went up to the game’s top players in no time and were even able to set the bar higher with their next effort, Love And Other Disasters (2008). Touring with bands like AMON AMARTH, IN FLAMES or NIGHTWISH eventually cemented their status as the hottest new band around (Best Newcomer 2008 twice at Swedish Metal Awards and at Bandit Rock Awards, Best Music Video 2010 and Best Swedish Group 2010).

Darkane Euro Tour footage of “Ostracized” will booyah your day

Swedish melo-death quintet DARKANE have unveiled live footage from their recent European tour with Soilwork, which Metal-Discovery described as “aural epicness… a mesmerizing and riveting experience.” You can watch along as the band performs the track “Ostracized” from their acclaimed 2013 release The Sinister Supremacy filmed by Philipp Koch & Oliver Laux (Drumtalk) at the Biblelot in Dordrecht, Netherlands below!

Says the band, “We recently completed a European tour with Soilwork that took us through Spain, Italy, France, Luxembourg, Holland and the UK. The tour went great and, with the two bands having previously toured together, everything went smoothly – apart from Soilwork’s drummer Dirk Verbeuren getting injured and having to sit out a few shows. Luckily our drummer Peter (Wildoer) isn’t one to back down from a challenge, so he took over the drum throne for Soilwork’s remaining gigs. Closing in on the end of the tour, Dirk felt good enough to play again, so he played the final show of the tour in Dordrecht. Spirits were high, and to make it even better, Phillip from Drumtalk showed up and asked if we wanted him to film the show. Of course we did! And he did a really nice job. Darkane 100% live and raw. As it should be.”

SoilworklogoSwedish metal pioneers Soilwork have debuted a music video for the song “Rise Above the Sentiment” off of their upcoming album The Living Infinite. The album is set for release on February 27th via Nuclear Blast and will be a follow up to the bands 2010 release The Panic Broadcast.

You can see the video here.

Vocalist Björn “Speed” Strid commented: “It’s been an intense summer and at this point, me and the boys are hibernating in pretty much every corner of the world and putting our next album together. Many songs are yet to be written but the inspiration is flowing! People can expect a continuation of the intensity and presence of The Panic Broadcast, only taken to a higher level. That’s the mindset. We will do some touring next year as well, before hopefully entering the studio sometime in the early fall. The album title is already set: “The Living Infinite”. Chew on that for a bit and don’t spit it out until the music is invading your ears, folks!”

Swedish melodic death metal legends Soilwork have announced that their upcoming album The Living Infinite will be a double album.  At present the album is slated for a December 2012 release via Nuclear Blast.  This will be the follow up to 2010′s The Panic Broadcast and the recording debut of guitarist David Andersson, a long time collaborator.  This time around production will be handled by Jens Bogren who has worked with such bands as Amon Amarth, Opeth, Bloodbath, and Katatonia.

Soilwork frontman Björn “Speed” Strid had this to say about the recording:

“So here’s the scoop. Me and the boys have been waiting to share this for quite some time now: ‘The Living Infinite’ will be a double album! A REAL double album, in the true sense of the word, which means no fillers and no leftovers.

“I’ve been wanting to do this for a while and I proposed the idea to the rest of the guys in the band during our festival tour last summer. Everybody liked the title ‘The Living Infinite’ and also the idea of working towards the goal of releasing a double album. David Andersson was already playing with us last summer, so he has also been a part of this goal from the start.

“I feel very excited and proud that we’ve managed to find the inspiration and dedication it takes to create somewhat of a conceptual double album, especially since it’s dealing with a lot of existential questions.

“We are currently hard at work in the studio, putting this beast on tape. Things are sounding incredibly good so far.

“So excited about this and can’t wait to share the awesomeness with you all!”
