#110: Soilwork’s Bjorn “Speed” Strid”


The MetalSucks PodcastBjorn "Speed" Strid SoilworkSoilwork frontman Bjorn “Speed” Strid guests on the podcast this week. We talk about the band’s ongoing lineup changes and their effect on the sound, what it means to lose someone who has been playing with them for so long, if he’s ever thought about leaving, his recent decision to quit drinking and, of course, the band’s new album The Ride Majestic.

We also discuss the recent Spotify report listing the top 25 top sub-genres of metal on the service; you won’t believe what landed at number 6! What does it all mean for bands and their music on the streaming service, and who the hell is still listening to nu-metal?
