SOILWORK - To Enter Studio This Month!

SOILWORK - To Enter Studio This Month! - 2012-08-22 00:00

2012-08-22 00:00 - Swedish melodic death metal maestros SOILWORK will enter the studio on August 23rd to begin recording the follow-up to their 2010 release The Panic Broadcast. In the producer seat this time will be none other than Jens Bogren (OPETH, AMON AMARTH, BLOODBATH). The new album, entitled The Living Infinite, will also mark the recording debut of long-time touring guitarist David Andersson (NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA).
"It's been a pretty long time coming, but as we speak I'm sitting here smiling my ass off listening to the demos that will forge into The Living Infinite,” commented the group’s towering vocalist Björn “Speed” Strid. “I've been feeling pretty damn restless from this break to be honest with you, therefore it is with great excitement that I've approached this new album. As soon as we started working on songs in March, all my focus and energy went into building this new beast. We're finished writing songs and I'm currently laying down demo vocals and I'm having a blast. I feel very inspired.

Around the time that we released The Panic Broadcast, I moved into a house by the ocean in a tiny fisherman's village. The ocean has given me so much inspiration and raised a lot of existential questions, which will inspire a lot of the lyrics on The Living Infinite, the words Jacques Cousteau used to describe the ocean. Pretentious? Hell yes, but in the most typical SOILWORK manner, with the right intensity, dynamics and melodies to back it up and make it real. I can't wait to team up with the rest of the guys and start putting this album on tape, together with the amazing producer Jens Bogren!"

“It’s almost time to start recording The Living Infinite and I seriously can’t wait,” added drummer Dirk Verbeuren. “The new demos are super intense guitar-wise with tons of harmonies and typical SOILWORK-style riffs. I hear A Predator’s Portrait peppered with some The Panic Broadcast, a hint of Stabbing the Drama and a bunch of new spices thrown in for good measure. We’ve all been writing and arranging like mad for the past few months, now we’re about to get together in the ole rehearsal space to finish everything up. It’s gonna be a hell of a ride folks, and it’ll be captured in stereo by the mighty Jens Bogren. Better sharpen your sledgehammers cause SOILWORK is back!”
