It is often said that music is cyclic and while some sub-genres have died off and seen a renaissance, Swedish melodic death metal has been a constant presence that rejuvenates itself and is forward thinking as to creativity - something that has been at the heart of Helsingborg sextet Soilwork.

I must be a sucker for double albums from the 1970s that are comprised of four side-long epics. Tales From Topographic Oceans by Yes and Third by Soft Machine are mainstays in my stereo.
