The show will be recorded for a future DVD release, with a career spanning set list and special guest appearances to be made as well as further surprises. Nuclear Blast comments:

"The choice where to record the first ever Soilwork audiovisual live document was an easy one since Helsinki has always been a second home to the band. The venue itself, Circus, was just the right one to offer a full on Soilwork show. Expect great things to happen.

"The show will mark Soilwork's only Scandinavian show in spring 2014 and will be produced by Jouni Markkanen and directed by Ville Lipiäinen who also shot the most recent Nightwish DVD release 'Showtime, Storytime.' Tickets for this special show will go on sale on Wednesday, December 18th, 2013."

ProgPower USA XIV: A Friday To Remember

Internationally respected, domestically loved, and locally interesting (“Look at all these black-shirted people walking into this Einstein Bagel Co!”), the ProgPower USA festival returned to its frequent home at Center Stage in Atlanta, Georgia this past weekend for its fourteenth year of bringing quality metal to the stateside masses.

Through the hallowed gates (err… glass and metal doors) of the venue, almost anything was possible on the days of September 5-7. To some, it was an ocean of opportunity or a place to be reborn in metal. To others, a place to spend endless nights with the masters of the world themselves. To most of the 1,000+ attendees, it was where they went to reach within, feel alive, and leave with a sense of pride -- nobody was wondering “Why am I here?,” even if it was only the 1st chapter of their ProgPower story. (For this writer, the festival was also a chance to write 9 song/album titles from the bands that would be performing at the show into this second paragraph about the show. Because it sounded really cool.)

As previously detailed, the festival brought 5 bands to the states for the first time and 16 in total throughout the three days, with an extra 2 added to that in a separate Wednesday show. When I had arrived on Friday, the ProgPower elite who had come both days prior to it were feeling quite at ease and even had a sort of comfortable glow about them. I later learned that this was due in part to warm hangovers, but mostly due the awesomeness of the concerts on the days leading up to Friday, which were written about in part by Metal Underground admin CROMCarl. This, however, is the record of my time at this year's crazy heavy wonderland. More...

Soilwork To Re-Release "A Predator's Portrait"

After releasing "The Living Infinite" (reviewed here), Soilwork has announced a lavish deluxe version of the 2001 break-through album "A Predator's Portrait," due out on October 18th (EU) / October 15th (US).

The album will be re-issued as a digipack with all new artwork and will contain 2 previously unreleased live bonus tracks. Commented drummer Dirk Verbeuren:

"I view 'A Predator’s Portrait' as a milestone in several ways. It’s our first recording for Nuclear Blast, still our home to this day, six albums later. It marks the first time Björn 'Speed' Strid pushes his vocal talents into the melodic realm. And it concludes the early Soilwork years, with follow-up »Natural Born Chaos« starting something new and different altogether. Now that we’ve come full circle with our ninth album 'The Living Infinite 'the time is right to revisit 'A Predator’s Portrait.'

"This ultimate re-release comes with re-imagined artwork by original cover artist and Soilwork keyboardist Carlos Del Olmo Holmberg as well as two live renditions of classic 'APP' tracks performed by the band’s current line-up during the 2013 North American Infinity tour. Enjoy this piece of Pure Swedish Melodic Mayhem!“ More...
