Soilwork’s New Resonance


Brand new song released 

Visionary Swedish metallers SOILWORK have released one of the two brand new songs off their upcoming special collection of rarities, ‘Death Resonance’ (out August 19, 2016 via Nuclear Blast).

Watch the lyric video for ‘Helsinki‘, created by well known videographer Tommy Antonini (

Guitar player David Andersson comments: “Death. It’s a word that might be used too often, but it can still be interpreted in a myriad different ways. It’s not just the soma being deprived of its lifeforce; it’s also the end of infinity, the birth of new possibilities and the acceptance of inevitable change. This song was written soon after the recording of our live album in Finland, making new friends and making sure that the old ones stay with us forever, despite the fact that everything is finite.”

The gloomy cover art (see below) was created by MNEMIC guitarist Mircea Gabriel Eftemie (VOLBEAT, CARCASS, SCAR SYMMTERY, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD)

Singer Björn “Speed” Strid comments: “The cover for ‘Death Resonance’ is made by Mircea Eftemie and in many ways he managed to capture what we went through while recording »The Ride Majestic«: the sorrow, the close encounter with death, the aftermath and also the existential cogitation that came with it. It links those albums together, even though ‘Death Resonance’ contains unreleased material from 2005 and forward. The cover almost seems like a link between life and death and not only captures where the band is right now, but also where we’ve been and what lies ahead.”
