Lifemusicmedia.com have just published my recent interview with Bjorn ‘Speed’ Strid of Sweden’s Soilwork.
Formed amongst the heady days of the Gothenburg death metal scene in Sweden in 1995, Soilwork quickly became known as one of the most original and progressive bands in the genre. Their prolific work ethic has seen them release eight studio albums and tour the world relentlessly over the last 15 years. Their new album, ‘The Panic Broadcast’ continues to develop on their progressive talents by including elements of funk, pop rock and symphonic genres; yet the music never fails to pummel with sonic brutality.
We chatted about their new album, influences, the 1990s Gothenburg scene, working with Devin Townsend, Bjorn’s upcoming 1970s rock side project ‘Night Flight Orchestra’ and much more.
