Rise Above The Sentiment

Biography

There are few artists that need no introduction, but Sweden's SOILWORK are definitely one of them. Hailing from the town of Helsingborg, their reputation as one of the country's finest exports is well-deserved. Few bands have melded the aggressiveness of metal with genuinely catchy choruses to such impressive results. Before you start name-dropping the latest metalcore sensation, ...

I actually got into Soilwork back in June, but I didn't get this cd until July. So far, I have worked my way backwards with my Soilwork collection, and right now I'm on A Predator's Portrait. But now on to the review for this cd.
Figure Number Five, when I got it, was my favorite album. But just because it was doesn't mean that I hate it now. It's just that after hearing APP and NBC, it seems like it isn't as fast as I remembered. But I'm not a big fan of judging cds from their brethren. This album does have it's high points, though. Rejection Role and Figure Number Five are two heavy tracks, and there are others, too. Overload and Strangler are favorites of mine. Those are just a few of the songs on here that are very good. This is a pretty solid cd all around, and it doesn't get very repetitive.
So if you are looking for a super-heavy cd to bang your head to, you might want to look elsewhere, like A Predator's Portrait. But if you're a fan of Soilwork, you definetly want to pick this one up. It may upset some of you, but it may please some others as well. All I have to say is just give this cd a chance.

My god.
In just a few years' time, Soilwork have progressed from a fearfully identical At the Gates clone into the very embodiment of everything I love about metal.
The first two albums were typical Gothenburg death/thrash. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but they didn't really stand out to me as anything groundbreaking. "A Predator's Portrait" came along later, and turned out to be really good. "Natural Born Chaos" followed the year after, and ripped my head off.
Naturally, I was expecting big things from the newest installment of Soilwork fury, and much to my delight, my expectations were blown up by a large chunk of C4.
"Figure Number Five" is simply a monster. It rips, burns, shreds, tears and devours any unsuspecting listener. The riffs charge out with unstoppable force, melding seamlessly into a beautifully-constructed onslaught of keyboards, drums and bass. The vocals, courtesy of "Speed" Strid, do everything from soar melodically over mid-tempo grace to blast-beat anger.
Picking a favorite track would be like selecting a supermodel I'd most like to sleep with - I just can't. "Rejection Role," "Departure Plan," "Overload," "Downfall 24" and "Light the Torch" are the highlights that come to mind first, but really, folks - the whole album barely has a fault. I don't care for the title track as much, but being the least best is hardly a crime for this CD to commit.
Get this album. Now. You owe it to yourself simply because you've read this review and know who Soilwork is. Rock on.

Alright, so it's a bit more accessible than other Soilwork albums... Half of it is sang in clean vocals, and many of the aongs have a verse-chorus structure.... But it's still good. To me, it's just as intense and pounding as "Natural Born Chaos", sometimes even moreso because of its basic drumming patterns and straight-forward sound. Just because mainstream kiddies get a hold of this doesn't give old fans a reason to abandon this band. If you really listen to it, it'll grow on you. After hearing the more technically-inclined "Natural Born Chaos" and listening to this, I was skeptical... But it came to grow on me, I can't get the choruses or rhythms out of my head. Believe me, this is a cd that will be in constant rotation in your stereo or car. If you're a fan of the older material, you most likely won't enjoy this. But if you're willing to let this grow on you, check it out at all costs.

The guitars and drums both are more focused on songwriting this time around. Rhythms are more straight-forward, and it seems like the presence of the band is more powerful, and a lot of the guitars follow a power-chord structure. Speed uses his clean vocals more here, but he still has his signature semi-growl on songs like "Figure Number Five".

1. Rejection Role- One of Soilwork's most-played songs. Has a bold, strong chorus, and some great solos. 5/5

2. Overload- More keyboard-oriented with some industrial samples. Speed's vocals are strong, and a pounding rhythm accents the chorus, which will stick in your head for weeks on end. Another strong song. 5/5

3. Figure Number Five- Shows a return to the ferocity of "Natural Born Chaos". Fast, brutal... Oh yeah! 4/5

4. Strangler- A faster song, and a bit more aggressive.

the Scandinavian dude once again show that they top the metal world, with Soilwork fifth album "Figure Number Five", they again (after their famous "A Predator's Portrait") combine the heaviness of traditional Scandinavian metal with a more catchy melodic guitar riff and chrous, the trash vocal, powerful guitar riff, fast beat, for sure will be enjoyed by a lot of metal fans, and their influence on the punk/emo scene nowadays is very significant, think bands like Story Of The Year, AFI.... if you like them and want to go for something heavier and more metal-oriented, "Figure Number Five" will be the ablum for you.

Tracks like "Overload", "Departure Plan" showcase their excellent song writing ability, the unique yet catchy heavy guitar riff help solidify the whole songs, melodic and head-bangging, whereas "Figure Number Five", "Strangler", "Light The Torch", "Brickwalker" show the trashier and more progressive side of them with those speedy yet technical rhythm part. The trash vocal and the "Duran Duran, Depeche Mode"-ish melodic vocal merge together very well, and the melodies and quite strong, i'd listen the same CD whole day at the office, and i won't feel boring and annoying.

the impact of Euro band are bigger than ever, we have bands like Mnemic, Opeth, Pain of Salvation, and Soilwork, etc.. Great bands technically and musically, they are at the top of the game, and "Figure Number Five" is no doubt one of the best albums of the genre so far, so check this out.
