SOILWORK To Begin Mixing Next Week

SOILWORK vocalist Björn "Speed" Strid has posted the following recording update on the group's official web site:

"Hi everybody! sorry for not posting updates very frequently... anyways me and Sven have been so busy with our stuff and I can tell you it's one of the biggest and most exhausting efforts we've ever gone through, it´s been very hard mentally and physically sometimes. But after all, the result is amazing! It's all worth it folks!! I nailed down my last screamy vocals today and my whole body is aching like I've been run over by a truck. Sven has some stuff left to do with the keys. We will start to mix the album this week, can't wait to hear the final result."

As previously reported, SOILWORK initially entered Dug-Out Productions in Uppsala, Sweden with producer Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, IN FLAMES, STUCK MOJO) to begin recording their sixth album, tentatively due in early 2005 through Nuclear Blast Records. The recording sessions have since moved to the Fascination Street studios in Örebro. A few studio photos can be viewed at this location.

With regards to the new material, Strid recently said, "In my ears it sounds like a mixture between 'Natural Born Chaos' (2002) and our latest effort, 'Figure Number Five' (2003) with a slight and interesting development."
