It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. And whereas many of us are dusting off old pictures and sentimental objects, and reminiscing, Swedish melodic death metal virtuosos SOILWORK have dug up a different kind of trip down memory lane.
The band digitally releases ‘Kvicksilver’, a Swedish version of ‘Mercury Shadow’ – once released in 2002 on SOILWORK‘s fourth album Natural Born Chaos.

SOILWORK states:
“Heres an old gem from the vaults! ‘Kvicksilver’ means ‘mercury’ in Swedish and somehow we decided to make a Swedish version of one of our songs during the recording of the Natural Born Chaos album, back in 2002 . We think it turned out pretty damn cool and definitely deserves to be shared with the world at this point. Enjoy ‘Mercury Shadow’ – all sung in Scanian dialect, we give you ‘Kvicksilver’!”

SOILWORK just released new European tour dates together with IN FLAMES and ARCH ENEMY for autumn 2024. Under the moniker of the Rising From The North Tour, the band will tour thirteen countries, starting in the United Kingdom on October 3rd.

About Soilwork:
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.
