SOILWORK Guitarist Says Group's New Album Is 'Heavy And Melodic Like Never Before'

April 13, 2005

SOILWORK guitarist Peter Wichers recently spoke to Canada's Chart Attack about the group's latest CD, "Stabbing the Drama".

"This album was a way of channelling my rage," he said. "After having two drummers leave the band, I wanted to get that out. I also wanted to be spontaneous. This album is heavy and melodic like never before. This album represents a lot of what we’ve gone through over the past few years."

With regards to the album title, Wichers said "I'm not sure exactly what Björn ['Speed' Strid, vocals] wants the title to mean… [He's] usually very secretive of his titles, but for me it's about putting an end to the drama this band has been through lately. It's a very catchy title that represents the album. I didn't hear the album finished until it was mixed and I didn't think it was gonna be this heavy. It's powerful but it's a cold brutality."
