SOILWORK vocalist Björn „Speed“ Strid comments: "We just put the final touches on our new album »The Ride Majestic« and all we can say is that it's going to be massive. It definitely picks up where we left off with »The Living Infinite«, but slightly darker, atmospheric and almost anthemic, with some really interesting twists and turns. Can't wait to play this epic beast live! Await the ride majestic ladies n gents!"
In celebration of »The Ride Majestic«’s impending release, SOILWORK have released a live video of their hit song ‚Let This River Flow‘ feat. NIGHTWISH/REVAMP singer Floor Jansen, which comes off SOILWORK’s most recent DVD/Blu Ray output, »Live In The Heart Of Helsinki«!
Added Strid: "I was really excited to work with Floor Jansen, especially since we haven't had any female guest artists featured on anything SOILWORK-related before. I first got to know Floor via email some years ago, when she asked me to do some guest vocals for her other amazing band REVAMP. I was absolutely thrilled, since I really respect her as a singer - she can do it all: amazing clean vocals, powerful high and low screams and can shape her voice into just about anything. I thought I'd "return the favor" and ask her to do 'Let This River Flow' with me for our live DVD in Helsinki and boy did it turn out amazing! It was really cool to meet her in person as well, her presence is majestic and she has a great sense of humor. I think our voices match perfectly in this almost anthemic song, which showcases a lot of different types of vocals."
The official »The Tour Majestic« European run will kick off in late November. The band will share the stage with Danish thrash/death Metal group HATESPHERE and another special guest.
