Soilwork: The Ride Majestic

Album Review

Melo-death veterans form a layer of cheese

Twenty-one years after forming Soilwork, vocalist Björn ‘Speed’ Strid remains the band’s only constant amid a band membership with more lineup changes than an international friendly.

Not short on ambition, Speed’s response to the 2012 departure of guitarist/songwriter Peter Wichers was The Living Infinite – an utterly bludgeoning double-album melo-death odyssey awash in breakneck tempos, proggy time signatures and melodies so grandiose as to border on genre parody.
