12 Songs, 50 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

As the title suggests, the Swedish metal veterans’ 11th album is an uncompromising work that finds them staring down reality. Bjorn “Speed” Strid contrasts clean highs and growls, giving headbanging songs like “The Wolves Are Back in Town” a compelling balance. The band demonstrates exquisite range on “Full Moon Shoals”, and “Arrival” spotlights the harmonic firepower of axemen Sylvain Coudret and David Andersson. In keeping with recent releases, Soilwork also collaborate with notable guests such as Arch Enemy vocalist Alissa White-Gluz and Tomi Joutsen of Amorphis, the latter contributes to the all-out assault of “Needles and Kin”.
