I was getting kind of excited for the new Soilwork effort, as return of founding guitarist Peter Wichers was supposed to be something worthwhile… but sadly I’m just not feeling their new song “Two Lives Worth Of Reckoning,” which is streaming over at Soilwork’s MySpace.
I don’t know, on first listen I was unmoved. Second listen was a bit better, but nothing I’d go out of my way for. Maybe it’ll grow on me? I haven’t been into Soilwork for a while, as the last album I enjoyed by them was Natural Born Chaos. I guess I just grew out of this whole melodic death metal/modern metal thing, but I’ll keep trying.
In the mean time, check out the new song and tell me what you think. The Panic Broadcast is due out July 13th via Nuclear Blast Records.
