Soilwork Announce New Bassist

Soilwork have officially welcomed Rasmus Ehrnborn to the band as their new bassist. News of his addition comes as the group are finishing up their new album.

Soilwork commented:

“We are pleased to finally welcome Rasmus Ehrnborn to the Soilwork family and announce him as our official bass player and full time member of the band. Rasmus has been onstage with us ever since the 2019 Verkligheten campaign and recorded our EP A Whisp Of The Atlantic as well as our upcoming album that is due this year. Rasmus is a world class musician and has truly become an important member of the band, and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for this new constellation.”

Ehrnborn added:

“For me, joining Soilwork as a full time member is a bit of a dream come true as I’ve been a big fan of the band for many years. Their musicianship and songwriting is out of this world, and after touring and recording with the guys these past few years I’ve come to consider them all dear friends. I’m humbled and proud to be a part of the next chapter of Soilwork.”

Soilwork Premiere “A Whisp Of The Atlantic” Video

Soilwork have premiered a new video for the title track of their new EP “A Whisp Of The Atlantic.“ That effort was officially released today (December 4).

David Andersson commented:

“From the desire of Feverish, the urge of Desperado, the determinism of Death Diviner, the insights and questions of The Nothingness and the Devil and the acceptance and spiritual searching of A Whisp of the Atlantic. The whole song and video sequence is like a slightly different take on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.

It’s all about realizing that we’re all stuck on this rock and that we need to find something more inclusive than religion to get through this together. Because in the end, we’re all outsiders, genetically hunter-gatherers trying to fit in in a world that we created but at the same time wasn’t really made for us.

The overarching theme is liberation from the extremely low level of the social and cultural debate these days, and it starts with the fundamentals and ends with the phenomenological. From liberation into ascension.”

Soilwork To Release New EP “A Whisp Of The Atlantic” In December, Premiere “The Nothingness And The Devil” Video

Soilwork will be releasing a new EP, titled “A Whisp Of The Atlantic,“ on December 4. A video for the effort’s first single, “The Nothingness And The Devil,” can be found below, along with the cover art and track listing:

“A Whisp Of The Atlantic” Track Listing:

01. “A Whisp Of The Atlantic”
02. “Feverish”
03. “Desperado”
04. “Death Diviner”
05. “The Nothingness And The Devil”

Guitarist David Andersson commented:

“From the desire of ‘Feverish‘, the urge of ‘Desperado‘, the determinism of ‘Death Diviner‘, the insights and questions of ‘The Nothingness and the Devil‘ and the acceptance and spiritual searching of ‘A Whisp of the Atlantic‘. The whole song and video sequence is like a slightly different take on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. It’s all about realizing that we’re all stuck on this rock and that we need to find something more inclusive than religion to get through this together.

Because in the end, we’re all outsiders, genetically hunter-gatherers trying to fit in in a world that we created but at the same time wasn’t really made for us. The overarching theme is liberation from the extremely low level of the social and cultural debate these days, and it starts with the fundamentals and ends with the phenomenological. From liberation into ascension.”

He also added the following about the new song:

“‘The Nothingness And The Devil‘ is a song about how the old concept of a patriarchal God doesn’t work anymore, and how everyone with any logic reasoning must accept that we have to create our own deities, if we need them. Or if we don’t, we’ll have to accept the fact that our lives are essentially meaningless unless we are able to find our meaning and make ourselves feel fulfilled.

The video also hints at the emasculation of a male god, and how gender shouldn’t be a factor in any form of religious discourse anymore. Perhaps this is the time to question your beliefs and accept that no God will correct the mess that we all have put ourselves into.”
