When chief songwriter/lead guitarist Peter Wichers exited Soilwork, it was a question of how the writing would be affected. Also, whether it would still be a strong lineup after bringing in new guitarist Daniel Antonsson. No worry here. The production is as solid as it was on Natural Born Chaos, you have all of the best elements from the previous albums, and a strong vocal performance from Bjorn (whose vocals were produced by Strapping Young Lad’s Devin Townsend). If Stabbing The Drama wasn’t the album for you, this might not be either. Give it a listen.
The limited edition comes with a bonus track, and a bonus dvd with footage from the making of the album, Exile music video, and a full live bootleg.
