Soilwork Take You to “Helsinki”

  • Axl Rosenberg

So Soilwork have a rarities collection called Death Resonance coming out later this summer. And as you are no doubt aware, one hard and fast rule of rarities and greatest hits collections is that the band has to include at least a couple of new songs in order to attract fans who already have the rarities/greatest hits. Consequently, Death Resonance will have two new songs on it, a title track…

…and “Helsinki,” which you can now stream below. Guitarist David Andersson says the song is called what it’s called because it “was written soon after the recording of our live album in Finland, making new friends and making sure that the old ones stay with us.” But the lyrics make reference to “a place where the truth is contained and you’re always left the blame.” If this is how Soilwork talk about their friends, how much must they hate their enemies?

Catchy song, though. Soilwork have always been good at writing those.

Death Resonance is out August 19 on Nuclear Blast.
