Staff review by
Baz Anderson
Soilwork are of the biggest names in the Gothenburg metal scene and nine years after their debut they bring to us album number seven, "Sworn To A Great Divide". While Soilwork have been around, many things have changed in the world of metal, and one of the most notable changes has been the immense rise in popularity of melodic death metal, or more specifically Gothenburg bands such as Soilwork, In Flames and Dark Tranquillity. Listening to "Sworn To A Great Divide" now, there are quite subtle contrasts comparing with the band at the beginning of the decade.

Good album. Why does everyone hate this album?

Probably because it's so thin and by-the-numbers. It's well-executed but poorly written.
I have no memory of this place.
