Soilwork “The Panic Broadcast” – LP Review

Review: Lana Harris

  Helsingborg? Where the Helsingborg is that? Turns out this Swedish town is the fertile ground where Soilwork first plied their craft. Soilwork (both the name and the band’s philosophy) represents commitment and determination. Building from the roots of things and seeing them through to fruition via a lot of hard work.

Bjorn ‘Speed’ Strid of SOILWORK chats with Ben Hosking from LifeMusicMedia.com – Interview

Interview: Ben Hosking

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.

Ben Hosking talks with Soilwork founder member and singer Bjorn ‘Speed’ Strid about their new album, influences, the 1990s Gothenburg scene, working with Devin Townsend, Bjorn’s 1970s rock side project ‘Night Flight Orchestra’ and much more.
