On March 14, Project Alpha TV conducted an interview with vocalist Björn “Speed” Strid of Swedish metallers SOILWORK at this year’s Hammerfest, which was held at Hafan y Mor Holiday Park, Caernarfonshire and Merionethshire, Wales. You can now watch the chat below.

As previously reported, Dutch singer Floor Jansen (NIGHTWISH, REVAMP) joined SOILWORK on stage last night (Friday, March 21) at Circus in Helsinki, Finland. The concert was filmed for SOILWORK‘s first-ever live DVD, to be released later in the year.

The choice of location for the shoot of the first-ever SOILWORK audiovisual live document was an easy one since Helsinki has always been a second home to the band. The venue itself, Circus, was just the right one to offer a full-on SOILWORK show.

The show marked SOILWORK‘s only Scandinavian show of the spring.

The DVD is being produced by Jouni Markkanen and directed by Ville Lipiäinen, who also helmed the most recent NIGHTWISH DVD, “Showtime, Storytime”.

SOILWORK‘s ninth studio and first dual-disc album, “The Living Infinite”, sold around 7,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 60. The effort also landed at No. 11 on the Independent Albums chart, and No. 2 on the Hard Music chart. “The Living Infinite” entered the iTunes Metal Top Albums chart at No. 1 and was the No. 1 most added album on the CMJ radio chart.

“The Living Infinite” was produced by Jens Bogren (OPETH, AMON AMARTH, BLOODBATH) and boasts artwork by MNEMIC‘s Mircea Gabriel Eftemie. The CD features Justin Sullivan — lead singer of the English band NEW MODEL ARMY — as a guest vocalist on the track “The Windswept Mercy” and also marks the recording debut of longtime SOILWORK touring guitarist David Andersson (also of THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA).

The concert will be filmed for SOILWORK‘s first-ever live DVD, to be released later in the year. SOILWORK says: “The song that Floor will lend her beautiful and powerful voice to will remain a secret for now, as I’m sure you understand… Just make sure you don’t miss out on this!!!”

Adds Floor: “I have been a fan of [SOILWORK‘s] music for years! They will record a live DVD this special evening; definitely a show you don’t want to miss! The show takes place in Circus in Helsinki, Finland. See you there?!”

Sweden’s Soilwork unveiled the album artwork for the band’s upcoming new double length album release “The Living Infinite” (shown below). The album is set for release on February 27, 2013 in Asia (via license to Marquee Records), in Europe on March 1, 2013 and in North America on March 5, 2013 through Nuclear Blast Records. “The Living Infinite” was produced by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth, Bloodbath), the CD features artwork by Mnemic’s Mircea Gabriel Eftemie.

The band commented on the artwork: “After commissioning some pretty elaborate covers for the last couple of records, we decided to try something more sober and design-oriented fo r The Living Infinite . Who better to call than the man who created the iconic Stabbing The Drama cover? Mircea Gabriel Eftemie is not only a close friend but also an incredible graphic designer. We’re all stoked about his work which is different from anything SOILWORK has ever done and perfectly suits the elegant oceanic concept of The Living Infinite. Enjoy, folks!”

Artist Eftemie added: “Seven years ago, I created the artwork for the Stabbing The Drama album and I can’t believe how time flies! Here we are, with sexy gray hairs, working with my friends in SOILWORK again. This time, we built the cover around a maritime concept, aiming for something direct and symbolic. I believe we achieved that quite well. From my creative deck, I salute you and say: ‘Long Live The Living Infinite.’”
