Vocalist Björn "Speed" Strid of Swedish melodic death metal band Soilwork has issued the following update discussing their new album:

"After a long but intense absence, I'm back giving you a little report on what's going on in the Soilwork camp. We have just wrapped up the last songs on the new record and i have a constant smile on my face. The title of the new album will be 'THE PANIC BROADCAST.' I'm so stoked to record this new album and i feel it's gonna be quite a challenge for everybody in the band. So how's it sounding?"

"Here's my personal take: I feel it's bigger than life to use an old cliché, but seriously, if any of you for some reason have missed some of that intricate riffing that made Soilwork unique, won't have to wait very long. I feel this record is very playful and we're not cutting down on anything, no 'is this too much information' -consideration, no 'less is more,' just pure musical joy with no boundaries, THAT'S to me what it's all about. Obviously there's gonna be some surprises like always but giving every member of this band the freedom to go apeshit, will make this record a heavy and naturally catchy one. More solos? -Check, Insane riffing?-Check, Melodic vocals?-Check, Screamy vocals?-Check, Progressive keyboards?-Check, Best metal drummer in the world?-Check, will Flink dance while recording his bass tracks, like they were nothing?-Check. Drums will be recorded in Asheville NC, starting this Saturday. Keep your eyes open for an online studio report, join us and watch every step of the new album taking form! 'THE PANIC BROADCAST' IS UPON US!"

Sweet dude, can't wait to hear this, hopefully they do bring a little old school but I also liked their material from Stabbing The Drama.

Please let it be a good/kick ass/brutal/badass album like the old ones were! Not that I didn't like the last one, it just was like the old ones.

Shut up, nitwit! You don't understand the least bit about Soilwork. Sworn to A Great Divide didn't suck at all. They had to write that album without their lead guitarist and main songwriter, and had to write it with a new bandmember. I think Sworn to A Great Divide was great, and really grew onto you after you listened to it more and more (especially with it having 3 bonus tracks!). You don't have an ear for Soilwork if you think everything after A Predator's Portrait sucked.

Just do whatever you think is right Soilwork! Blow us away once again! I liked every f***ing album up till now, so keep up the good work. Sworn to A Great Divide was very good, screw the haters. I'm 200% sure that "The Panic Broadcast" will be another great record! The Soilworkers are counting on you! Good luck!
