Despite what you might think of their ever-changing sound over the years, you can’t deny that Soilwork are one of the most consistent bands out there when it comes to albums. From ‘The Chainheart Machine’ and ‘Natural Born Chaos’ to the more divisive ‘Figure Number Five’ and ‘Sworn to a Great Divide’, they haven’t so much balanced the line between Swedish melodeath and alternative influences as they have gone bungee-jumping with it. For now though, the metal press and fans alike are still gushing over their most recent release, the mammoth double album ‘The Living Infinite’. Profiling himself as one of the pioneers in modern drum recording techniques, Soilwork drummer Dirk Verbeuren runs his own high-tech facility, Die Crawling Studio, incorporating the most up-to-date software innovations developed by Toontrack and multiplying work as an in-demand session drummer for countless international artists. Recently, Verbeuren launched a brand new website featuring a special section dedicated to educational drum videos.
Metal Wani Editor In Chief Owais ‘Vitek’ Nabi recently had a chat with drummer Dirk Verbeuren. He discusses his DRUMatic journey, session work, Soilwork new album, personals truggles from last 2 years, musical direction, modern metal drummer, Dirk blasts and much more.
