Event: “Stabbing The Drama” CD Listening Party
Label: Nuclear Blast Records
Genre: Melodic Death Metal
Swedish metal veterans Soilwork held a listening party for their forthcoming release on Nuclear Blast records. The CD, entitled “Stabbing The Drama” was blasted on the speakers of the CBGB’s Lounge this evening and a good metal time was had by all in attendance. From the band, we had guitarist Peter Wichers and several representatives from the Nuclear Blast record label. In addition to the listening and enjoyment of the CD as well as any beers, there was the chance to discuss the bands plans for this release and give them a chance to mingle with many of their media connections. Peter was an interesting and fun dude to kick back with. He has a great sense of humor and is very excited about the coming tour.
I was pleased to be invited for I feel when the label goes the distance for their Artists in this manner it only bears positive fruit in the end. For those that have never even been there, I found the lounge of this legendary punk club to be a great place for this type of activity.
A review of the CD is forthcoming and I can only say this so far. Soilwork fans will definitely dig the efforts laid into this piece of metal. It mixes the classic vibe they are known for as well as a lot of awesome drumming and guitar work. There is also a great use of both grinding and melodic vocals and the result they achieved is to be applauded. Check your area calendars for the tour that is set for mid 2005.
