SOILWORK guitarist Ola Frenning and drummer Peter Wildoer have finished mixing the group's new album, due later in the year via Nuclear Blast Records. "All I can say, it sounds excellent... great sound, great playing and a good mix of songs," Ola writes on the band's web site. "I'm very happy to have an album in my CD collection that no one else has... yet!"
The vocals for the new CD were recorded in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada with the help of STRAPPING YOUNG LAD mastermind Devin Townsend. Songtitles set to appear on the album include "Your Beloved Scapegoat", "Light Discovering Darkness", "The Snare Broken" and "The Pittsburgh Syndrome".
SOILWORK recently announced the addition of guitarist Daniel Antonsson (DIMENSION ZERO, PATHOS) to the group's ranks.
SOILWORK's last CD, "Stabbing the Drama", is available on Nuclear Blast Records. The follow-up to 2003's "Figure Number Five" was recorded at Fascination Street studios in Örebro and Dug-Out Productions in Uppsala, Sweden with producer Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, IN FLAMES, STUCK MOJO).
Guitarist Peter Wichers left SOILWORK in December 2005 to pursue a career in producing.
