Band of the Week: 9/6/2015

Soilwork
For twenty years, Soilwork have been spreading their music to the globe of Heavy Metal and have managed to remain true to their extreme musical vision despite the numerous music trends that have come and gone during that time frame. The main reason why Soilwork have remained relevant throughout their career is because they have always stayed focused in their mission as a band and always strive to create music that is heavy yet intelligent but never predictable.

There is no question that their signature sound is instantly recognizable by any respectable Heavy Music fan (you) and that it is pretty damn hard to replicate. Yes, they have influenced many artists out there but there is still only one Soilwork. The band recently released their NEW studio album entitled The Ride Majestic (available now via Nuclear Blast Records) and it is a masterpiece! This is the band's tenth studio album in twenty years, making it clear that Soilwork already created a musical legacy! The best news is that they are not satisfied yet, meaning that they are not even close to slowing down their fast pace.

If you have ever witnessed Soilwork live on stage, you know that they always put on amazing performances in which they truly connect with their global audience. Speaking of live performances, below are all of the band's upcoming gigs in support of The Ride Majestic alongside Soulfly, Decapitated and Shattered Sun.
