Swedish metallers SOILWORK have recruited Taylor Nordberg (INFERNAEON, RIBSPREADER) to play bass for the band on their upcoming European tour with KREATOR, SEPULTURA and ABORTED, which is scheduled to kick off on February 1 in Metz, France. It is not presently clear how this affects the status of SOILWORK's bassist of the past couple of years, Markus Wibom, who was previously in the Helsingborg hardcore group HEARTS ALIVE. Wibom joined SOILWORK in 2015 as the replacement for the band's longtime bassist Ola Flink, who amicably left the group to focus on other endeavors.SOILWORK last year released a special collection of rarities titled "Death Resonance" via Nuclear Blast. The band's tenth studio album, "The Ride Majestic", was issued in August 2015 via Nuclear Blast. Drummer Dirk Verbeuren left SOILWORK last year to join MEGADETH at the recommendation of LAMB OF GOD's Chris Adler who played on MEGADETH's "Dystopia" album. Verbeuren was replaced in SOILWORK by Bastian Thusgaard of THE ARCANE ORDER.
