  • Crónica Soilwork

    Mie 26 Nov – Soilwork, One-Way Mirror, Ananta

    Crónica sacada de rocktotal.com:

    Con un frío más propio de Suecia que de Madrid, la capital acogía, en un día tan poco propicio para un concierto como un miércoles, la nueva visita de los suecos Soilwork. La banda, de nuevo en forma al haberse reincorporado a sus filas un gran guitarrista como Peter Wichers, presentaba su último disco, "Sworn To A Great Divide". Y lo hacía con la compañía de Ananta y One-Way Mirror. Lamentablemente no pudimos ver a los paródicos Zimmers Hole, descendientes de Strapping Young Lad, ya que por diversos problemas tuvieron que cancelar la gira. Aún así, el cartel seguía teniendo bastante atractivo, especialmente por ver lo que podía ofrecer en directo One-Way Mirror, que no fue mucho, todo sea dicho.

    El caso es que a las 20:00 horas se abrían las puertas de la sala Live para que, nada menos que una hora y media después, empezase a caldear el ambiente Ananta. …
  • Soilwork v.s. In Flames

    21 Mar 2008, 15:35 by Mwrar

    Yesterday evening I was sitting in our car, reading with my mp3player on when suddenly I hear a nice song, but I can't recall the artist or the title of the song.
    And what turnes out? It was the song 20 More Miles by Soilwork from their latest album.
    Because of this I'm gonna listen to their work some more. I got 3 cds by them on my pc, so I guess that will help me. Let's see if I was wrong with unrightfully claiming that In Flames is better than Soilwork anyway.

    But something makes me wonder.. why is In Flames topartist on the lastfam page from the toplistener of Soilwork on LastFM, Gumze?

    -----------

    Sound
    Both In Flames as Soilwork are melodic death metal bands. Wikipedia description: "Originally the genre combined the harmony style and groove melodies of heavy metal with the harsh thrashing sound and vocals of death metal".

    Review #5: Soilwork - Sworn to a Great Divide

    Okay, so in my opinion, Soilwork is quite a good band. Not especially amazing, but definitely worth listening to. However, I heard (and read, on lastfm) that their new album was bad, so I thought I'd check it out and write a review. Hope you all enjoy the read.

    Sworn to a Great Divide, the first track on the album, makes a blasting start. Some quite good riffs, some influences and quite good vocals. with a twist.
    Exile starts out with an annoying intro, but makes up for this, being a steady, diverse and melodic song.
    Next is Breeding Thorns, which has some great riffs and really nice drumming. Unfortunately it misses the variation the other songs had, and the vocals aren't really what you would expect from a melodic death metal band.
    The vocal work in Your Beloved Scapegoat is definitely what I don't like about Soilwork, In Flames and similar bands. It's shouty, but trying to actually sing at the same time. …

  • Neue Alben

    28 Oct 2007, 13:37 by Wolvorine

    Dieses Jahr hatte ich persöhnlich eine derartige Anhäufung neuer Alben meienr Lieblingskünstler durch zu hören - das mir jetzt langsam die Ohren bluten!
    1)http://cdn.last.fm/coverart/300x300/3407679-390624260.jpg

    Es fing Harmlos an mit der neuen Foo Fighters Platte Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace. Sehr gut durchstrukturiert, ruhig und gleichzeitig äußerst gut wieder zu erkennen. Den Opener The Pretender kannte ich bereits vorher. Der Song gehört mitlerweile zu meinen Favoriten ihre Werke im Allgemeinen. Auch Track 2 Let It Die durfte in diese Liste. Der Wechsel von sehr ruhuig zu sehr hart ist das Herzstück des Songs - Einfach genial! Auch der Acoustic/Instrumental Song Ballad of the Beaconsfield Minersist irgendwie lustig gestaltet wie ich finde. Die Melodie ist auf ihre Weise sehr lustig und sitz schnell im Ohr fest.
    Mein Lieblingslied des Abums ist neben Let It Die jedoch Long Road to Ruin.
