The Skinny: Swedish visionary metallers Soilwork are gearing up for the release of their forthcoming 10th studio album, The Ride Majestic, hitting stores worldwide on August 28, 2015 via Nuclear Blast Records. In anticipation of the forthcoming release, Soilwork have released new track “Enemies In Fidelity” and you can hear it below now!

Vocalist Björn “Speed” Strid states: “”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!”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
