    I am one of the fans who are unhappy with this direction they're in. It's obvious now that Bjorn and David prefer classic rock and have probably grown away from metal. It's apparent in their sound and the fact that they now sound like TNFO.

    I mean the music is still very well done, but just wish they were interested in makingn eavier and more aggressive music, and leave the overly catchy hooks, slide guitars and crunch distortion levels for TNFO

    I dunno, I like new Soilwork. I also like old Soilwork. All Soilwork is good.

    Although, there's definitely a certain element missing without Dirk.

    This. Not exactly my favourite track, but I don't mind their current direction. TNFO is a bit too much for my taste, but unlike a certain other swedish metal band, Soilwork did not yet turn into a classic rock or prog-rock band :D

    Living Infinite is my fav album of theirs. I've loved it all along the way.

    Is the question why they don't sound like that or why they don't sound like Chainheart Machine? Because they're not that band anymore. Same as In Flames.

    Soilwork is still my fav metal band, but my only complaint is that I miss Dirk. Bastian is really good and I prob would love him if not for Dirk being my fav metal drummer of all time and IMO wasted on Megadeth. It's just a different style really, but it takes away what I loved. Dirk brought dynamics and constant tempo/feel changes to their music, whereas Bastian is more consistent. As an example, the half, regular, and double time bass drum beats under the constant blast("Dirk") beats:



    Not 2020, but here is some newer Swedish Pop-Metal (?) for anyone that likes the newer Soilwork stuff:

    New Imperial Triumphant. Really loved their last album, so I'm excited for this new one.

    This year has been pretty stellar musically.

    This band is stunning. I cannot wait for the full release:

    It's a custom made out of all the times I wish the vocalist would have shut up for a second

    They're gonna make it sound more Pop with new vocals and probably overall production. Based on that short clip, I am going to go ahead and cast judgment before it's out. :)

    This collab is amazing. Makes me wish for new Gorguts, or Luc Lemay anything in general.
