Metal Alert:

Finally bought the album after a couple years of seeing it on here. Oddly seeing some traces of romance and [romantic] loss in the album. Feels like a first of the albums I have of them. I kinda like it. Stil full, driving rhythms sweetened by catchy riffs by the backup guitarists and keys, all to top off the harmonized vocals.

Soilwork has never failed to make me feel a sense of welling emotions with how they write: Bastian is a monster at executing on the drums when they want you to feel a groove, and how they make room to bounce off the different sections of the band in a studio recording is just dandy.

Another example.
