This is the second video off the band’s critically acclaimed latest album, The Ride Majestic, out now on Nuclear Blast Records.
"Toontrack’s software and sounds are essential not only to Soilwork but to myself for the work I do daily at my Die Crawling Studio. It’s really an honor to have a company whose products are a pivotal part of one’s creative process to premiere our new video”, commented SOILWORK drummer Dirk Verbeuren.
Vocalist Björn “Speed” Strid adds, “Recording the video for 'Death In General' was absolutely spectacular. After finishing up our North American tour at the Whisky in Hollywood, we got up at 5am the next morning and drove into the desert. Joshua Tree is truly a magical place and was the perfect setting for this song and the mystical feeling it generates. BLIND MELON guitarist Christopher Thorn was very kind to let us use his land for the shoot and he also welcomed us into his home. Director Hristo Shindov and his assistants did a fantastic job, capturing the vibe of the song with stunning footage. The dancers, Daisy and Flannery also did an absolute outstanding job, as they danced in the sunset. Truly magical. We are very proud to present this video for one of the most powerful songs that we have ever written. Hope you enjoy it and that you somewhat can imagine the feeling we had while recording it!. We highly recommend sipping on a real good tequila or mezcal while watching it...”
The video was directed by Hristo Shindov (shindov.com) and shot on location in Joshua Tree, California. The premiere is part of Toontrack’s Metal Month, the company’s annual celebration of all things metal-related. November has seen several new product releases, happenings and deals, all through the month.
