Soilwork’s New Album Title and Update
Swedish modern melodic metallers SOILWORK have just finished wrapping up the writing process of their new album titled, The Panic Broadcast. The recording will mark the much anticipated return of founding guitarist Peter Wichers. The band is set to begin recording drums this Saturday in Asheville, NC. Vocalist Bjorn “Speed” Strid sent the following update:
“What up people? After a long but intense absence, I’m back giving you a little report on what’s going on in the SOILWORK camp. We have just wrapped up the last songs on the new record and I have a constant smile on my face. The title of the new album will be The Panic Broadcast. I’m so stoked to record this new album and I feel it’s going to be quite a challenge for everybody in the band.
So how’s it sounding? Here’s my personal take. I feel it’s larger than life to use an old cliché. Seriously, if any of you for some reason have missed some of that intricate riffing that made SOILWORK unique, you won’t have to wait very long. I feel this record is very playful and we’re not cutting down on anything. No “is this too much information” –consideration this time, no “less is more”, just pure musical joy with no boundaries. THAT to me what it’s all about. Obviously there’s going to be some surprises like always but giving every member of this band the freedom to go apeshit, will make this record a heavy and naturally catchy one. So…
- More solos? Check!
- Insane riffing? Check!
- Melodic vocals? Check!
- Screamy vocals? Check!
- Progressive keyboards? Check!
- Best metal drummer in the world? Check!
- Flink dance while recording his bass tracks, like they were nothing? Check!
Drums will be recorded in Asheville NC, starting this Saturday. Keep your eyes open for an online studio report. Join us and watch every step of the new album taking form! The Panic Broadcast is upon us!”
