As previously announced, 'The Living Infinite', the ninth studio album and first dual-disc release by Swedish melodic Metal maestros SOILWORK, will be unleashed on February 27th in Asia (via license to Marquee Records), in Europe on March 1st, and in North America on March 5th (via Nuclear Blast Records). Peep the album cover and track listing HERE!Earlier this week, we tapped into Dirk Verbeuren's phone line and questioned him about the bands NEW record. During our chat with SOILWORK's drumming machine, we discussed why the band decided to have the balls to produce a dual disc in a time in which most bands are sticking to releasing "short" format releases since the music industry is an all time low and record sales are compromised as a result. We also chatted with him about his drumming techniques both on and off stage, and what producer Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, God Forbid) brought to the table. Verbeuren also offered us some insight on the music business and how this recently affected the future of Dave Lombardo in SLAYER! Check the interview out and spread the word!
The tracks “Spectrum Of Eternity” () and “This Momentary Bliss” ( are now available for purchase; in two weeks, two more songs will be made available. Pre-order the album on iTunes here:
