Been spinning this disc lately and this riff really jumped out. Starts around :55
Are we listening to the same Soilwork? :lol: Soilwork is driven by cheesy pop metal vocal melodies. It's like, Theater Kid Disney Channel Soundtrack melodies.Vocals have always been the afterthought of Soilwork.
I'm a huge Soilwork fan. Own every single one of their albums, and The Living Infinite is definitely one of their best. It's definitely the best of the ones they've released within the past 10 years.Album cover is very Roger Dean.
Fucking loved "The Living Infinite". The ones since then have all been good, but they are almost too polished for my taste. Routinely high quality, but no spark there IMO.
Discounting straight up manufactured pop metal like Amaranthe, I can't think of a band that is more vocal driven off the top of my head.But I don't know what Noodles is smoking. Most metal bands are guitar driven, but Soilwork is vocal driven.
Yeah not even close brother :lol:I'm not a fan of growlers to begin with, but he's not even a good one. Vocals have always been the afterthought of Soilwork.
I knew I'd tick off half the damn forum with that one. So, why stop now? :lol:Are we listening to the same Soilwork? :lol: Soilwork is driven by cheesy pop metal vocal melodies. It's like, Theater Kid Disney Channel Soundtrack melodies.
Your statement maybe applies to like, circa 1999 Soilwork, otherwise, no fucking way. They are a vocal driven band.
I dig them, especially The Living Infinite, but at times they are too vocal centric.
