We will release a series of interviews in relation to the clear vinyl reissue and CD release of our EP, A Whisp Of The Atlantic. We discuss our next album, expectations and the future. All we can say is that there's gonna be a new album in 2022. The series was produced by René U Valdes for Bravo & Bravo Films."
Check out the interview clips below.
December 4th, 2020 Swedish melodic death metal legends Soilwork shook the metal world in its foundations when the band released their new EP, A Whisp Of The Atlantic, featuring the most daring and virtuous song of the band to date, the 17 minute track that showcases the ingenuity and skills of the band in all their shades.
Today, Soilwork announce the release of an epic feature film that presents A Whisp Of The Atlantic in its unity by linking the entire storyline with new, small bits of music and brand new footage. The video will premier on Soilwork's YouTube channel on Wednesday, February, 3rd.
Soilwork's musical and their philosophical approach on the new EP does not only close the circle of the The Feverish Trinity, but also invites the listener to dive deep into the most primal element: Water. Starting with "Feverish" and ending with "A Whisp Of The Atlantic", the whole EP is a journey from the rage of individuals to the search for something that replaces religion.
David Andersson: “From the desire of 'Feverish', the urge of 'Desperado', the determinism of 'Death Diviner', the insights and questions of 'The Nothingness And The Devil' and the acceptance and spiritual searching of A Whisp of the Atlantic. The whole song and video sequence is like a slightly different take on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. It’s all about realising that we’re all stuck on this rock and that we need to find something more inclusive than religion to get through this together. Because in the end, we’re all outsiders, genetically hunter-gatherers trying to fit in in a world that we created but at the same time wasn’t really made for us. The overarching theme is liberation from the extremely low level of the social and cultural debate these days, and it starts with the fundamentals and ends with the phenomenological. From liberation into ascension.”
The tracklist reads as follows:
"A Whisp Of The Atlantic"
"The Nothingness And The Devil"
