Soilwork Release Brand New Song 'Desperado'

  • Published in News

Swedish visionary metallers Soilwork have released a brand new song called 'Desperado'. It is the second instalment in Soilwork's 'Feverish' trilogy which might also eventually end up becoming a so far unknown entity. It follows the band's globally acclaimed new album, Verkligheten (album of the month in Metal Hammer, Rock Hard, Aardschok and Scream), which was released in January 2019.

The band commented “'Desperado', just like 'Feverish', is a song about how a single emotion can overtake your entire being, and consume you like an almost sentient force. 'Desperado' is about what lies behind and beyond, the places you normally avoid. But they will always be there. 'Desperado' is shock rock and metal mayhem for those of us who long for a way out.”

The song was written and composed by David Andersson. The song was recorded at SolnaSound Recordings, Stockholm with Simon Johansson and The Panic Room, Skövde with Thomas Plec Johansson. Violin recorded by Rachel Hall.

Witchcraft To Release Acoustic Album

  • Published in News

Magnus Pelander’s Witchcraft have existed at the forefront of occult tinged classic rock ever since their formation in the year 2000, when Magnus decided to form the band so that he could record a tribute to his idols Roky Erickson and Pentagram’s Bobby Liebling. The pioneering band has never made excuses for their inspirations but went on to craft numerous genre-defining classics themselves. Witchcraft’s illustrious career from their self-titled debut in 2004 through to the 2012’s Legend album to the wondrous Nucleus in 2016, became cult classics and propelled the band to new levels of reverence within their scene. When it comes to blending doom with classic rock and flourishes of masterful ambience, nobody could touch them.

Now, Magnus takes Witchcraft in a brave new direction, setting forth into entirely new territory. Exhibiting the pure emotion that has always lived at the core of the band’s work, by moving forward alone: The band’s first new album in four years, titled Black Metal, is an entirely acoustic affair. From opener and the just premiered, first single, ‘Elegantly Expressed Depression’, it’s clear that this new facet of the band’s sound allows the rawness and fragility to shine in an entirely new light. The minimalism of Bill Callaghan, the tenderness of Elliot Smith and the air of slight discomfort that could only be Witchcraft combine to make this record a truly unique spectacle, not only in the band’s catalogue, but in the world of guitar music as it stands in 2020.

Black Metal will be coming out as CD, Vinyl and in Digital formats on May 1 via Nuclear Blast.

Album Tracklisting:

1. Elegantly Expressed Depression

2. A Boy And A Girl

3. Sad People

4. Grow

5. Free Country
