Sick Drummer Magazine has uploaded exclusive video footage of drummer Dirk Verbeuren (SOILWORK, SCARVE, ABORTED) laying down his tracks for the new SOILWORK album, "The Panic Broadcast", at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, North Carolina. Watch the clip below.
SOILWORK vocalist Björn "Speed" Strid recently stated about "The Panic Broadcast", "If any of you missed some of the intricate riffing that makes SOILWORK so unique, you won't be disappointed. I find these songs very playful and because we're not cutting down on anything — no 'too much information,' no 'less is more' — they're just pure musical joy with no boundaries. And THAT, to me, is what this band is all about! Of course, there'll be some surprises as always, and giving every one of us the freedom to go apeshit will without a doubt yield a heavy-as-fuck and naturally catchy album.
"More solos? Check. Insane riffing? Check. Melodic vocals? Screamy vocals? Progressive keyboards? Best metal drummer in the world? Will Flink dance while recording his bass tracks as if it were nothing? Check!!!"
The rest of the recording is set to take place in Tampa, Florida and the mix at Fascination Street in Örebro, Sweden.
The long-awaited follow-up to 2007's "Sworn To A Great Divide" is being produced by guitarist Peter Wichers and mixed by Jens Bogren (OPETH, KATATONIA, PARADISE LOST, BLOODBATH).
SOILWORK's new album will be the first to feature Wichers since his return to the band in 2008, as well as the studio debut with guitarist Sylvain Coudret (SCARVE), who also joined in 2008.
