Vocalist Björn "Speed" Strid of Sweden-based metallers SOILWORK has issued the following update:
"Songwriting mania has just begun for both SOILWORK and another act I would like to introduce you to. I have just launched my solo project that so far remains nameless. I have somewhat of a clear picture in my head of how the music will sound like. This might come as a shock to some of you but think 'Welcome to my Nightmare' by ALICE COOPER, 'Destroyer' with KISS, early AEROSMITH, a dose of 'Born to Run' with BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, a rocked-out ELVIS, some Motown, first BOSTON album and some early STEELY DAN etc...
"How about it, folks? The sound is gonna be dirty, retro, classic rock with horns, strings and some spaced-out percussion.
"I always wanted to do a real atmospheric rock album which has a pretentious, yet dirty, dirty feel to it. It's gonna be one hell of a project to make this all happen, but I will give it the pace it deserves; just wanted to introduce you to it.
"The lineup so far features Sharlee D’ Angelo (ARCH ENEMY, ex-MERCYFUL FATE) on bass and David Andersson (session guitar SOILWORK) and will be completed within a near future.
"In today's scene, I guess it will be hard to find the right label for this; not really metal label material, I suppose.
"Interested labels can shoot an email to the following address: [email protected]
"In other personal news, I'm still doing vocal coaching in my hometown of Helsingborg in Sweden and will also be able to do vocal coaching when I head for Phoenix, Arizona in the end of July. I'm also able to produce vocals in studio.
"If you want me to produce your vocals on your recording, don't hesitate to get in touch!
