Bjorn Strid (Soilwork) interview

with 2 comments

This is one I won’t forget for a long time.

I’ve been a fan of Swedish melodic death metal act Soilwork for quite some time now. When I first got into metal, I went through melodic death metal phase and Soilwork one of the bands that I listened to a lot. A Predator’s Portrait was on repeat for days.

Over the past 2 decades the band has consistently released new music and their twelfth studio album, Övergivenheten (The Abandonment in English) is out this week. 

I caught up with vocalist Bjorn “Speed” Strid prior to the album release to talk about it, writing for Soilwork and Night Flight Orchestra, their upcoming Australian tour and even what’s been on his playlist.

Audio version

A transcribed version of this interview will be live on The Metal Wanderlust soon.
