With terror being rife throughout the world, bands are increasing their reaction to the worlds current events. Ranging from all sorts of formats, one well rehearsed in the ways of battle are the German leaders st the vanguard of Thrash Kreator. Having returned after their five year material absence, the band have reasserted themselves firmly at the top of the second wave of Thrash Metal table. However it would seem that not only Kreator are born anew, as Brazilian counterparts Sepultura also unveiled their latest semi political statement Machine Messiah. Teaming up along with some help from both Soilwork and Aborted, the four band would match over Europe in a defiant conquering of venues far and wide. This time their march was headed toward Kentish Town’s Forum.
We caught up with Soilwork at the end of summer just to see how everything was going!
Soilwork have always been quite a live spectacle in whatever capacity I have had the pleasure of seeing them. This time around they are playing one of London’s most intimate venues in the The Underworld Camden, and we were there to soak up that melodic death metal energy.
On the back of their forthcoming release next week Soilwork have announced a brand new tour which promises to bring the Metalcore to the masses.
In the build up to their new release of their rarities collection Death Resonance, Soilwork have unveiled their third making of.
It’s been confirmed now that drummer Dirk Verbeuren has left his original band Soilwork after being tapped by Megadeth, but the Swedish melodeath metallers have vowed to continue at full force.
Set to unveil their collection of rarities the first single to be unveiled is “Helsinki“.
The band have decided to unearth tracks that were never released throughout their career and combine them into one neat little package.
Planning ahead seems to be key in the minds of Kreator, putting together another brilliant bill the band will be returning to European shores but not for a while.
Including a one off headline show in London!
For those unlucky to not bear witness to the band when they performed last year in the UK the states are now getting a chance to hear the classic album in its entirety.
Among others a strong work ethic is crucial to survive in the modern day world of the music industry. Having released their massive Live DVD/CD combo earlier this year it would seem that our Swede’s weren’t quite content at leaving it there. With a charged discography Soilwork begin to usher in their new era with their brand new full length The Ride Majestic.
