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, ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Soilwork is back! March 5, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Ever since my first spin of The Chainheart Machine back in 2000, I've been a die-hard Soilwork fan. While they've never quite matched up to said disc (as it is still my all-time favorite metal album), they have come close a few times. After a string of albums that I did enjoy but felt there was 'something' missing (Figure Number Five, Stabbing the Drama, and Sworn to a Great Divide), I felt that The Panic Broadcast was the beginning of a second coming for Soilwork. While the direction of The Chainheart Machine was undoubtably left in the dust, TPB seemed like they were truly meshing their sound to fans of their older material as well as their newer ones. Then it was announced that Peter Wichers was AGAIN leaving the band. Low and behold, their next announcement was that they would be recording a new disc, make that a new double-disc. It was a bit of a bold statement, since there certainly aren't many bands that would release 2 discs worth of material at once and even far fewer that were truly successful with it. The metal format really feeds off adrenaline, and while I know there are a number of exceptions, most bands just aren't as successful with a album time past 45-50 minutes. Turns out, Soilwork knew they were capable of not only pulling this off, but really releasing something special, as The Living Infinite is by far their most accomplished release in over a decade.

Soilwork are successful here not only at producing two exceptionally well written discs, but even as one long 85 minute album that holds up extraordinarily well digesting in one listen. The biggest strength of this release is the sheer variety that Soilwork has offered up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still rattling my windows. March 7, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
First I was impressed with the fact it was a double album. It occurred to me they might be using it as an excuse to dump old b-sides on us and call it new. Oh, how wrong I was. This is the kinda album of you have trouble getting out of the car from. You don't want to turn it off. It reminds you that Soilwork can bring it. Like Stabbing the Drama and Natural Burn Chaos. The Living Infinite gives you polished, mature and challenging material. At first it seems like an extension of The Panic Broadcast, which would be awesome! It then develops into more. The Living Infinite is an album you will analyze and jam weeks before your ready to give your ears a break.

I put this album on play 10 days ago and have not listened to anything else since. I probably repeat the entire album 3 times every day. I guess I can see why other people say that this album is not as heavy as their other stuff. But if you are a music fannatic, especially metal, then ask yourself this...How can music really get any heavier? Maybe actual, literal murder on an album, but that would be illegal..because it's murder. This djent crap that is popular now is what I have in mind when I think of how great this Soilwork album is. Everything these days is a game of who's the fastest, who's the most technical, who's the most obscure and random. What about who's the most listenable? If you appreciate the flow of catchy and timeless guitar choreography, if you like drums that almost speak to you like they have an opinion about what's going on in the news, if you like lyrics that seem to use some type of subliminal messaging that makes you wake up in the middle of the night thinking" Man, what did he say on the song? I don't know. I have to know right now," then this will be a good album. I've you're looking for a contender for those played out contests I mentioned about, then you will not find them here. This album has nothing spectacular about it and that's the charm. Everyone else is trying to be something and here is Soilwork, take it or leave it we don't give a s@#4 samwich.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised, and Impressed March 6, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was a diehard Soilwork fan back in the day, but lost them in the past 6 or 7 years. I think what I liked about them was their perfect mix of brutality, musicianship, and mixed clean/growling vocals. What made me lose interest recently was their overproduction of recent albums, and almost "caricature sound" of their old stuff.

Maybe it's inspiration from their new guitarist or something, but this album seems more sincere and fresh. They also seem to be experimenting with other sounds. I swear I hear some Opeth in there sometimes, along with some references to classic metal here and there. A majority of the tracks are listeners. I've only listened to the whole thing 1.5 times, but I suspect that in the future I won't be skipping too many of the tracks.

EDIT (2014-01-09): I can't believe it has been almost a year! I have to say that:

1) I still have this on my rotation.
2) I am genuinely happy when this album comes up on rotation.
3) The music on this album feels really inspired.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Monumental Double Album Masterpiece October 31, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yes my friends, Swedish melodic death metal masters Soilwork have once again returned in a big time way with their ninth studio album and their first ever double album 2013's "The Living Infinite" which is an 84 minute plus, 20 track monument of pure modern melodic death metal epicness from start to finish. Ever since my first listen of "Natural Born Chaos" ten years ago, I've been a huge fan of Soilwork and have gotten just about every album of theirs since then. Now this album to put it plain and simple, it is just absolutely phenomenal, and it's also the best album that Soilwork has put out thus far in my opinion as well. Every song on "The Living Infinite" just rattles my ears throughout with amazing musicianship and brilliant lyrics and songwriting. The album's production which is handled by Jens Bogren (who also handles the mixing and mastering) is simply outstanding. This album also marks the debut of guitarist David Andersson who replaces guitarist and founder Peter Wichers (who once again left the band in 2012), and he proves to be a very worthy replacement for Wichers. Together, David along with other guitarist Sylvain Coudret (who debuted on the band's previous release "The Panic Broadcast") both deliver an all out attack of heavily, bruising, and spitfire riffs and fantastic leads and solos throughout. Meanwhile the band's rhythm section of bassist Ola Flink and drummer Dirk Verbeuren is simply put mindblowing especially Dirk's drumming on here which definitely surpasses everything he's done ever since debuting on 2005's "Stabbing the Drama". He just goes from merciless blast beat pounding to double bass pedal slamming and everything in between on here. Read more ›

I really love this band but was actually pretty disappointed in this album. It just didn't have many great songs (for my liking) especially considering it is a dual disc.
