In Flames are one of the biggest metal bands in the world – never shying away from pushing their artistic boundaries, crafting music that’s as catchy as it is crushing. Formed in 1990, the band is considered one of the forefathers of melodic death metal and the purveyors of the ‘Gothenburg sound’. With now fourteen studio albums under their belt, countless successful tours around the globe playing with the likes of Black SabbathMetallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Judas Priest and Slayer – with millions of records sold and a massive fanbase worldwide, In Flames  have proven to be an unstoppable force. From their 1994 debut Lunar Strain onwards, the band’s intricate twin guitar attack, melodic vocals and superb arrangements have given them a signature sound that has evolved throughout the years.

Soilwork‘s high-class creative consistency, which they have been delivering solidly throughout their career, is the virtue that probably best defines them. Founded at the end of 1995, Soilwork released their debut album Steelbath Suicide in 1998, garnering a great early response. By 2001 Soilwork had joined Nuclear Blast, and by 2003 they already had five records under their belt. Continuing their tradition of high-quality musical output, 2022 saw their twelfth studio album Övergivenheten, which represents the band in their growth and their current phase of life – marked by a time that probably no one on this planet will forget so quickly.

Soilwork is:
Björn “Speed” Strid | Vocals
Simon Johansson | Guitars
Sven Karlsson | Keyboards
Sylvain Coudret | Guitars
Bastian Thusgaard | Drums
Rasmus Ehrnborn | Bass
