Soilwork The Ride Majestic Documentary Part One

Legendary melodic death metal band Soilwork will release their 1oth studio album The Ride Majestic on 28th August 2015 on Nuclear Blast.   In addition to an official lyric video for the title track of The Ride Majestic,  the band has also created a mini-documentary detailing some of the bands history.   The film comes in two parts and in part one we see singer Björn “Speed” Strid discussing how Soilwork was formed including some of the difficulties they have faced, as they have traversed the two decades leading up to The Ride Magestic.

Speaking on the album title track vocalist Björn “Speed” Strid said. – “The Ride Majestic was one of the first songs we wrote for this album. The intro sets a certain melancholic mood and after that it’s all pure melodic mayhem. There’s a very epic and anthemic feel to it, which suits the album title perfectly.  To me, it’s a very Soilwork-sounding song. We walk a fine line between melody and aggression, and I think The Ride Majestic really nails it. I can see this song becoming a future live staple for sure.”

Strid continues on to say – “The lyrics deal with the fear of dying and the art of remaining sane while you’re still alive. Not wanting to miss a thing, wanting to embrace every moment, and being able to bring it all back on your dying day, with a snap of your fingers. It’s also a tribute to the ones we’ve lost and the comfort of hoping that they will catch us when we fall, on the other side. We believe that, if there is an afterlife, this song would be the soundtrack to that journey. It deals with the acceptance of life and death and possibly everything between and beyond.”
