Bjorn Strid of Soilwork has issued the following announcement about launching a solo project:

"Hello everyone,

"The tropical heat has just arrived to Sweden and things are starting to shape up. Two festivals coming up real soon, looking forward to that.

"Songwriting mania has just begun for both SOILWORK and another act I would like to introduce you to. I have just launched my solo project that so far remain nameless. I have somewhat of a clear picture in my head of how the music will sound like. This might come as a shock to some of you but think Welcome to my Nightmare by Alice Cooper, Destroyer with Kiss, early Aerosmith, a dose of Born to Run with Bruce Springsteen, a rocked out Elvis, some Motown, first Boston album and some early Steely Dan etc...

"How about it folks? The sound is gonna be dirty retro classic rock with horns, strings and some spaced out percussion. I always wanted to do a real atmospheric rock album which has a pretentious, yet dirty dirty feel to it.. it's gonna be one hell of a project to make this all happen but I will give it the pace it deserves, just wanted to introduce you to it.

"The line up so far features Sharlee D’ Angelo (Arch Enemy, ex-Mercyful Fate) on bass and David Andersson (session guitar Soilwork) and will be completed within a near future. In today's scene I guess it will be hard to find the right label for this, not really metal label material I suppose...interested labels can shoot an email to the following address: stridsolo@gmail.com

"In other personal news I’m still doing vocal coaching in my hometown of Helsingborg in Sweden and will also be able to do vocal coaching when I head for Phoenix, AZ in the end of July. I'm also able to produce vocals in studio. If you want me to produce your vocals on your recording, don't hesitate to get in touch!

"Interested people can reach me at speedvocalcoaching@gmail.com. Please only serious offers!"

Sounds interesting to me - I'll definitely give a chance when I see it.

I'm confused though, it's a solo project with... multiple members? >;_>;

From the article though, ""The line up so far features Sharlee D’ Angelo (Arch Enemy, ex-Mercyful Fate) on bass and David Andersson (session guitar Soilwork) and will be completed within a near future." I guess maybe he means session members but still that seems odd. :P
