Soilwork – Australian Tour October 2010

“Soilwork are one of the 25 most important bands in Metal” – Alternative Press Magazine

TheThe Panic Broadcast (Exclusive Bonus Version) – Soilwork
  Sweden’s melodic death metal masters Soilwork will be ripping up Aussie shores for only the third time in October this year. Touring on the back of the release of their eighth studio album, The Panic Broadcast, which drummer Dirk Verbeuren has described as “the true musical path of Soilwork”, the band will be bringing their killer live shows that The Metal Observer have dubbed “Metal with the fun factor in the driving seat”.

In terms of Swedish metal bands, Soilwork has proven themselves as the crème de la crème, still a cut above other native Swedes such as In Flames, Meshuggah, Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquillity and The Haunted. Thom Jurek of All Music Guide writes “Their anthemic chorus’, with killer backing harmony vocals, takes Soilwork beyond most of their Swedish peers” adding that “Punters at their shows are absolute putty in singer Bjorn ‘Speed’ Strid’s hands”. Artistically empowering on stage, the band demonstrates their use of textured guitars and keyboards, instrumental sounds and pristine echoing vocals, as if letting the audience in on a secret. Because of this Soilwork’s live shows never cease to entertain and amaze, with PyroMusic describing the atmosphere of their shows as “an extremely fun mass sing-a-long with a destructive twist often leaving audiences in a pool of blood, sweat and tears”.

Jane Hawkes of Crossfire MusicZine’s review of Soilwork’s last Australian tour read “The band are immensely watchable and towards the tail end of their night, they steamroll into ‘As We Speak’ with a near-unbearable intensity which leaves revelers in awe. Wrapping it all up with a white hot rendition of ‘Follow The Hollow’ to near euphoric cheers, the wait seemed absolutely worth every minute. Amazing, all consuming stuff.”
