Soilwork have made a new track, titled “Enemies In Fidelity”, available online for streaming. Vocalist Bjorn “Speed” Strid said of the song:
““Enemies in Fidelity” is indeed a very melodic and atmospheric beast. This was one of the first songs that I wrote for the new album and it holds a lot of surprises. The chorus almost sounds as if Simon and Garfunkel started a black metal band. That’s the way we like it – playful, dark, intense and melancholic. It definitely stands out, but also gives you an overall idea of what Soilwork currently is about.
The lyrics deal with whether you should escape or succumb to the suffering that you might experience in your life, in order to find new strength. The ambivalence. The guilt and the respect towards your own existence. Being awakened and finding satisfaction through frustration and anger, to a point where it almost becomes addictive. Enjoy!”
The Swedish melodic metal outfit’s 10th studio record The Ride Majestic is slated for release on August 28th through Nuclear Blast, with pre-orders currently available at this location.
