Photo Gallery: Soilwork at Manning Bar – October 22, 2010


25 Oct

I went along to the recent Soilwork concert at the Manning Bar in Sydney last Friday night one behalf of Lifemusicmedia.com. I was there to photograph the Swedish band’s gig with support band Buried in Verona.

Soilwork play a form of metal called melodic death metal and formed in Helsingborg in the 1990s. Their latest album, ‘The Panic Broadcast’ is a killer slab of metal and sees the band really return to form after one or two less impressive releases possibly a result of founding guitarist Peter Wichers’ absence.

Interview: Bjorn ‘Speed’ Strid of Soilwork for Lifemusicmedia.com


09 Sep

Soilwork audio interview with Ben HoskingLifemusicmedia.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.
