WILL THE REAL SOILWORK PLEASE STAND UP?
Nuclear Blast has set a September 21 German release date for the
Peter Wichers solo project second Nuclear Blast All Stars release, entitled Out of the Dark. Wichers, who produced, wrote and played all 10 songs on the disc, was a founding member and primary songwriter for Soilwork but left the band in 2006 to pursue a career in producing. Dirk Verbeuren (Soilwork, Scarve) and Henry Ranta (ex-Soilwork) lent their drumming abilities to the disc, as did Soilwork vocalist Bjorn “Speed” Strid and a number of other top tier vocalists including Anders Friden (In Flames), Christian Älvestam (Scar Symmetry), John Bush (ex-Anthrax), Guillaume Bideau (Mnemic), Peter Tägtgren (Hypocrisy) and more.
With a new Soilwork record due in October, the first without Wichers in the group, it will be interesting to compare it side by side with Out of the Dark.
