Soilwork frontman, Björn "Speed" Strid, and guitarist, Peter Wichers, has checked in with the band's fifth studio update:

"So, here we are, back in Sweden after the worst travel experience we've ever had. We were supposed to fly from Greensboro to Newark and then connect there to Stockholm. We arrived at Greenboro and found out that our flight was delayed, only 30 minutes though. 30 minutes turned into 2 hours and we started to realize that we were gonna miss our connecting flight to Stockholm from Newark. The Continental staff told us that if we don't make it for the Stockholm flight, they would put us on a flight to Manchester UK and then fly from there to Stockholm.

"When we arrive at Newark, we see our SAS flight pass by from our seats. It's like there was a huge middle finger painted on the side of it. When we get inside the airport, the staff is telling us that our Manchester flight is delayed 3 hours, which meant that we now had a total of 6 hours layover. Tired and forcing ourselves to destroy the entire airport with our fists, Peter went to lie down and I went to the bar trying to take off the edge. It worked for some time, but I started to feel like I was gonna pass out. After 6 hours we finally got on the plane that we got degraded to (From SAS to Continental. And let me tell you, in case you didn't know already, Continental sucks ass!). We arrived to Manchester and there we had to wait for another 5 hours before our flight finally took us to Stockholm. After 30 hours of travelling.

"Now that we're here in Fascination Street studio in Örebro, Sweden, there are no limitations to the joy we feel about this album. We started mixing the first song today: 'The Thrill,' it sounds absolutely majestic!!! Jens Bogren, the mixing engineer, also has a big smile on his face and is doing a fantastic job! If you look outside, Sweden is still covered in snow, absolutely insane. We will start to mix the second song tomorrow, can't wait, gonna be hard to fall asleep... talk to you in a few days!"

This is gonna be one of the best so far. Its going to be very very big sounding. Just wait and notice the recording quality will be huge and a mix by Jens is the #1 choice by anyone if you want a mix that shakes the very foundation of the planet we live on.
