Respected melodic death metal stalwarts Soilwork are preparing to enter the recording studio, with the band suggesting they will begin work on a new studio album later this week.
The pending release will mark a direct follow-up to 2010’s ‘The Panic Broadcast’.
Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth) will produce the new album entitled ‘The Living Infinite’. Additionally, David Andersson (Night Flight Orchestra) will make his debut in the fold after Peter Wichers left the band in June.
Drummer Dirk Verbeuren provided the following update:
"It's almost time to start recording 'The Living Infinite' and I seriously can't wait. 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!"
