SOILWORK Broadcasting Their Recording Sessions Live On USTREAM

Swedish modern metal godfathers SOILWORK are currently working on their latest album "The Panic Broadcast" the follow up to 2007's "Sworn To A Great Divide" which will also mark the return of guitarist/songwriter Peter Wichers to the fold.

In association with USTREAM, the band will be broadcasting the recording sessions live for fans,who can take part in asking the band questions during the recordings. The first broadcast will be on the 28th of January at 07:00 pm PST at this location.

Here's what front man Bjorn 'Speed' Strid had to say about the new record:

"What up people?

After a long but intense absence, I'm back to give you a little report about what's going on in the SOILWORK camp... We've just wrapped up our last demo and I've got a constant smile on my face!

The title of the new album will be THE PANIC BROADCAST.

I'm so stoked about this record, and I feel it's gonna be quite a challenge for everyone in the band. So how does it sound? Here's my personal take: to use an old cliche, it's bigger than life! Seriously, 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!!!

Drums will be recorded in Asheville, NC starting this Saturday. Keep your eyes peeled for an online studio report featuring live video updates... Join us and watch every step of the new album taking form!
