SOILWORK picture
Soilwork is a swedish melodic death metal band formed in late 1995, originally under the name Inferior Breed in Helsingborg, Sweden. In 1996, they changed their name to Soilwork to better fit their new sound. Their unique sound is a fusion of the classic gothenburg metal sound with power-groove riffs of late 1970s, early 1980s British, and European metal, but in their most recent albums they have also introduced elements from American alternative metal and adopted a more melodic attitude. Their most recent work has more singing and lighter melodies than their earlier work, as well as a more polished production that brings out the strength of the drums.

In 2005, the band began to gain minor commercial success in the United States. Stabbing the Drama reached #12 and #21 on the Billboard Heatseeker and Independent album charts, respectively. They played the 2005 Ozzfest alongside gothenburg melodic death metal band

SOILWORK A Predator's Portrait

Album · 2001 · Melodic Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"A Predator´s Portrait" is the 3rd full-length studio album by Swedish melodic death metal act Soilwork. The album was released through Nuclear Blast Records in February 2001. It´s the successor to "The Chainheart Machine" from 2000 and features the exact same lineup who recorded the predecessor.

The material on "A Predator´s Portrait" are melodic and pretty polished melodic death metal with thrashy riffing. The polished sound is very much due to the omnipresent keyboards, which add a lot of depth and atmosphere to the sound but also take away a little of the savage power of the first two albums. Every possible space in the music is filled with background keyboards and the music is often not given much time to breathe (which is up to the ears that hear if that is a good or a bad feature). So the listener is treated to a wall of sound type of soundscape. The guitars play some relatively fast melodic thrashy riffing and even enters neo-classical territory at times. There are some pretty impressive sections here and there if you take a close listen. Lead vocalist Björn Strid handles both aggressive high pitched snarling vocals and clean vocals too. Strid is a skilled singer and his clean vocal delivery adds lots of melodic memorability to the tracks. "A Predator´s Portrait" is the first Soilwork album where he combine his raw vocals with singing clean vocals (having exclusively performed raw vocals on the first two albums), and although he would develop his clean vocal style on subsequent releases, his performance here is of high quality too.

Highligts to my ears are "Like the Average Stalker", "Neurotica Rampage", "Grand Failure Anthem", and the title track (the rerecording of "Shadowchild" from the Japanese/reissue version of "The Chainheart Machine (2000)" is also worth a mention), but all tracks are almost on an equally high quality level. Some tracks are a bit too formulaic and predictable and a bit more rawness and less polish could also have elevated the album to a higher level, but all in all "A Preditor´s Portrait" is a quality product. The sound production is professional and the performances are high class all around, so upon conclusion "A Predator´s Portrait" is another high quality release by Soilwork and because of the inclusion of clean vocals an important step in the development of the band´s sound. A 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating is deserved.

SOILWORK Death Resonance

Boxset / Compilation · 2016 · Melodic Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Death Resonance" is a compilation album by Swedish melodic death metal act Soilwork. The compilation was released through Nuclear Blast Records in August 2016. Soilwork´s latest studio album at this point was "The Ride Majestic (2015)", which is their 10th full-length studio album, so Soilwork had plenty of material to chose from. "Death Resonance" is not a "best of" compilation though, but instead a rarities collection of tracks recorded between 2005 and 2016.

The compilation opens with two completely new tracks, which were recorded exclusively for this release in "Helsinki" and "Death Resonance". Both are high quality compositions, but since Soilwork´s standards are so incredibly high, I´ll allow myself to call them good but not as great as their best material. "The End Begins Below the Surface" is a Japanese bonus track off "The Ride Majestic (2015)", and again it´s a quality composition, but nothing too special when taking the band´s full discography into consideration. The five tracks off the "Beyond the Infinite (2014)" EP follow and to my ears they are the highlights of the compilation. High quality compositions which were left off the double album "The Living Infinite (2013)", but which could just as well have been included on that album as these aren´t what you normally associate with leftovers/B-side single tracks. A track like "My Nerves, Your Everyday Tool" is so damn catchy it´s almost a criminal act, that it was left off the full-length album.

Then follows several Japanese bonus tracks off "Stabbing the Drama (2005)", "Sworn to a Great Divide (2007)", and "The Panic Broadcast (2010)". Among them a re-recording of "Sadistic Lullabye", which is found in it´s original version on "Steelbath Suicide (1998)", but in this version it was included as a Japanese bonus track on "The Panic Broadcast (2010)". The tracks off "Stabbing the Drama (2005)", "Sworn to a Great Divide (2007)" are remixed. All tracks are quality material, but few stand out as anything out of the ordinary for Soilwork. And that goes for both the quality of the material but also stylistically, where there are very few surprises if you´re already familiar with Soilwork´s melodic death metal style and lead vocalist Björn "Speed" Strid´s distinct aggressive snarling and clean vocals.

Some tracks feature more interesting sound productions than others, but they are all very well produced, featuring powerful, clear, and detailed productions, which suit the material perfectly. Upon conclusion "Death Resonance" is yet another high quality release by Soilwork, and while not all tracks on the compilation are equally interesting (or at least don´t stand out much in the band´s discography) a 4 star (80%) rating is still deserved.

SOILWORK The Ride Majestic

Album · 2015 · Melodic Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"The Ride Majestic" is the 10th full-length studio album by Swedish metal act Soilwork. The album was released through Nuclear Blast Records in August 2015. It´s the successor to the double album "The Living Infinite" from 2013, although the "Beyond the Infinite (2014)" EP does bridge the gap between the two album releases. The lineup from the last album is intact.

Following up the hugely successful "The Living Infinite (2013)", must have been a daunting task, but with Soilwork you just know that they are up for the job. And "The Ride Majestic" doesn´t disappoint if you enjoyed "The Living Infinite (2013)", as it more or less continues down the same melodic extreme metal path as the predecessor did. Energetic and powerful rhythms, heavy and faster paced guitar riffs, melodic guitar solos and lead themes, atmosphere enhancing keyboards (nice production detail letting the listener hear what the keyboards contribute with in the closing minute of "Enemies In Fidelity"), and Björn "Speed" Strid´s shouting/screaming- and clean vocals in front. Soilwork writes incredibly melodic and hook laden material, that sometimes borders pop accessibility (just take a listen to tracks like "Death In General" or "Enemies In Fidelity" for proof of that), but they balance the sweetness with some relatively hard edged riffs, fast and powerful drumming (even occasional blast beats), and Strid´s harsh vocals. An example of the more hard edged material that is also found on the album is the dark and fast paced "The Phantom", which to my ears is one of the highlights of the album.

The musicianship is on a high level on all posts, and you are not in doubt that these six guys are seasoned musicians. Strid is always worth a mention for his strong voice and passionate delivery, but the whole band are tight playing and performs with conviction and great skill. "The Ride Majestic" is well produced too and features a powerful and clear sounding production, which brings out the best in the music.

Featuring 11 tracks and a full playing time of 49:50 minutes, "The Ride Majestic" is overall a more easily accessible album than "The Living Infinite (2013)". While it´s not my personal opinion, I know some listeners found the double album format a little overlong, and for those listeners "The Ride Majestic" is probably more to their tastes. I can´t say I think there´s been much development in sound since the predecessor, but there are still some of Strid´s clean vocal melodies which catch me a bit off guard, and that slight "surprise" element is still enough to set this album apart from it´s predecessors and to prevent the band´s core style from growing stale. A 4 - 4.5 star (85%) rating is deserved.

"Steelbath Suicide" is the debut full-length studio album by Swedish melodic death metal act Soilwork. The album was released through Listenable Records in May 1998. It was re-released in 2000 through Century Media Records with a different cover artwork and a live bonus track. Soilwork formed in 1995 under the Inferior Breed monicker, but changed their name to the current monicker in 1996. Soilwork recorded the 5 track "In Dreams We Fall into the Eternal Lake" demo in 1997 and upon a chance meeting with Michael Amott (Arc Enemy, Carcass, Spiritual Beggars), they gave him a copy of the demo, which led to the record deal with Listenable Records. Soilwork went through a couple of lineup shuffles in their early years and just before recording "Steelbath Suicide", keyboard player Carlos Holmberg and bassist Ola Flink were added to the lineup.

The addition of a keyboard player to the lineup, is something that would change the band´s sound a lot through the years, but on "Steelbath Suicide", the keyboards are more restrained and mostly work as atmosphere enhancers. The music on the album is melodic death metal influenced by fellow Swedish artists like At the Gates and especially In Flames. Mostly fast paced and energetic with high pitched raw and snarling vocals (no clean vocals on this album) and loads of melodic guitar themes and solos. The musicianship is brilliant. The delivery is tight and passionate. Considering the fact that this is a debut album, it´s actually pretty impressive how well playing Soilwork is.

The material is generally of high quality, and while not all tracks stick out equally much, the album as a whole works really well. The sound production is raw but profesionally produced. Some of the band´s later works have a tendency to sound a bit too polished, but that´s not the case here and the sound production suits the music well. Upon conclusion "Steelbath Suicide" is one hell of a debut album and certainly an album that Soilwork can be proud of. A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

SOILWORK Beyond the Infinite

EP · 2014 · Melodic Death Metal

UMUR
"Beyond the Infinite" is an EP release by Swedish metal act Soilwork. The limited edition EP was released through Avalon/Marquee Records in September 2014 and is exclusive to the Asian market. "Beyond the Infinite" features five outtakes/unreleased tracks from "The Living Infinite (2013)" sessions. Believe it or not, but there were actually leftover tracks from that double album release.

Stylistically the five tracks on the 21:49 minutes long EP are pretty much in line with the melodic death metal tracks featured on "The Living Infinite (2013)", but with a little twist here and there, which makes it understandable but not wildly obvious that it was these five tracks which weren´t included on the album. There are just some small details, and in some cases a slightly less infectious chorus melody than usual for Soilwork, which points in the direction that the tracks on "Beyond the Infinite" were outtakes. Musically this is melodic death metal with both raw semi-growling/screaming vocals and many clean vocal parts, melodic lead guitar work and heavy and fast death/thrashy riffing, very fast precision drumming, and keyboards used for effect and atmosphere. In other words, the sound of Soilwork.

And that´s about it, because overall the material is very well written, incredibly well performed, and as well produced as the material on "The Living Infinite (2013)". So if you´re a fan of that album, "Beyond the Infinite" is definitely worth your time and money. a 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.
