Soilwork is a Swedish melodic death metal band formed in late 1995, originally under the name Inferior Breed in Helsingborg, Sweden. In 1996, they changed their name to Soilwork to better fit their new sound. Their unique sound is a fusion of the classic Gothenburg metal sound with power-groove riffs of late 1970s, early 1980s British, and European metal, but in their most recent albums they have also introduced elements…

  • In late 2012, Soilwork signed a pact with Satan Himself.
  • http://www.last.fm/music/Soilwork/The+Ride+Majestic It's there, but since it's new, it doesn't have that many 'listeners' yet, so it's on the last page of their 'Top albums' page.
  • its the crappy new last.fm i guess
  • Cheers!
  • Is just me or Last.FM doesn't have The Ride Majestic in their database ?
  • very good new album!
  • <3
  • I agree about the drum sound, I would prefer a dryer, more natural sound. Anyway, I'm loving this album all the same!
  • Bjorn cleans are pretty muffled at times too (title track, All Along Echoing Paths)
  • It's not so much that I think the overall mix is muddy, it's that I think the drums are "wet". Listen to the drums on NBC compared to Majestic. NBC the sound is tight -- I guess the "attack" is quick and then it decay's instantly. On Majestic it's like the opposite, the sound from dirk's drum hits linger for longer. I don't think this is a bad thing, I just don't think it fits soilwork's music as well. I also feel like their recent albums, the guitars aren't as upfront as they used to be, I don't really mind that much though. Jens Bogren is a great mixer/master/producer -- and yeah in this album I think he did a good job with Sven, he mixed him lower in the previous one. In the youtube questionaire thing, Bjorn/Dirk said Sven doesn't like being up front and asks them to turn him down all the time, despite everyone else wanting him up front lol.
