SOILWORK feedback: “‘Nous Sommes La Guerre’ developed round a ‘struggle or flight’ theme. The tune is about inner struggles and confronting your individual worst sides. It is a cry for assist in defeating the darkness inside you and transfer in direction of a brighter path.”
The extraordinary art work for the brand new single was created by Argavilda who has a really personal view on the band’s newest output.

All of the scarred and murky sides being laid naked the deeper you dig. Crying golden blood as a result of there aren’t any extra tears. It’s a individual soul looking out to seek out solutions and exposing themselves to ask for assist. My interpretation of the lyrics is intricately linked to being misplaced and realizing, that you should construct your self up anew and that you simply can’t do it alone.”
Musically and lyrically developed, “Övergivenheten” is described in a press launch as SOILWORK‘s “most complicated and elaborate album so far which marks a brand new section of their profession.

SOILWORK frontman Björn Strid feedback: “The title observe of this album simply could be the head of this band’s musical journey — it sums up all the things that we have ever been about and the typically dangerous musical enterprise that this band launched into some 20 years in the past. To me, this tune is as near the center because it will get.”
SOILWORK was shaped in Helsingborg in 1995. Following two extremely acclaimed albums, “Metal Bathtub Suicide” (1998) and “The Chainheart Machine” (1999) on Listenable Data, SOILWORK joined the Nuclear Blast roster in 2001.

In a 2013 interview with Australia’s Heavy, Strid said about his use of growled and clear vocals in SOILWORK: “I attempt to not restrict myself. I simply ‘really feel’ it out, attempt to seize the tune’s really feel. I’ve at all times been interested in attempting out new issues with vocals. I’ve by no means actually wished to get caught in a single factor, whether or not it was screams or clear. There’s a lot in between, you possibly can go many alternative methods. I even have a band with David [Andersson] known as THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA and that was positively a problem for me vocally as nicely. I believe I obtained to know my voice lots from that as a result of it was a completely new factor for me.”
