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’ to mammoth double album ‘The Living Infinite’, 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 latest release, the mammoth album ‘The Ride Majestic’. They are set to embark on a national tour of Australia next week. Soilwork’s Australian club dates will kick off at Perth’s Rosemount Hotel on February 10, heading onto Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney before wrapping up at Melbourne’s 170 Russell on February 16.
