Sweden's SOILWORK will enter Helsingborg's Queenstreet Recording studios on Dec. 16 to begin recording their as-yet-untitled fifth full-length album, due in late spring via Nuclear Blast Records. The band will track all guitars and keyboards at Queenstreet with producer Fredrik Nordström before moving over to Uppsala's Dug-Out Recording to record the drums under the watchful eye of Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, STUCK MOJO)."We want to have a more 'alive' and acoustic sound to the drums this time," explained the band via their official web site. "We are also big fans of Daniel's previous work regarding drums on other albums." The vocals and the bass will once again be recorded at Studio Fredman, with the mix scheduled to take place at the same facility. "The songs [on the upcoming album] will probably sound a lot like [those on] 'Natural Born Chaos', but we are focusing on making even better choruses," the band stated. "We guarantee that you won't be disappointed (or at least we hope so he he!!)."
