Soilwork - New Second Guitarist

The following update has been posted on Soilwork's website:

"We're proud to announce that we decided who's gonna be the new second guitarist for Soilwork. After tons of gigs and tours, with different candidates, we decided that it will be Daniel Antonsson (from Dimension Zero, Pathos). It was a very hard decision to make... cause all of the guitarists we tried, have been awesome to play with. We had a great time with all of them on the tours and I'm sure they soon will be heard in another band or another constellation.

About the recording:

Dirk has arrived to Sweden, and we have been rehearsing the new songs for a couple of days now. Today [March 2] we will start with the recording of the drums. And that will go on for the next week, or something. During the following 3 weeks, we will record the guitars, bass and keyboard. At the beginning of March, Björn will fly to Canada and work together with Devin Townsend, to do the vocals. It's gonna be interesting.

As I mentioned, we will try to keep ya updated as much as possible, and we will also try to upload pics and video clips from the studio. Stay tuned!

Well atleast I expect the vocal-producing to be good, knowing that Devin Townsend is THE greatest gift that has EVER been given to the world of music! Period. Hands down please!

Daniel is a great guitarist, so I'm happy for the band...
Can't wait to hear the new album and the Bjorn vocal work with Devin Townsend!
