Peter Wichers Comments on Producing New SOILWORK Record

May 14th, 2010




Peter WichersThe Godfathers of Swedish modern metal, SOILWORK, will release The Panic Broadcast on July 2 (EUROPE) and July 13 (N. America) via Nuclear Blast. It will be the first album to feature original guitarist, songwriter & producer Peter Wichers since his return to the band in 2008! The Panic Broadcast was also produced by Wichers, as he did with the latest NEVERMORE release, and was mixed by Jen Bogren (OPETH, AMON AMARTH, KATATONIA, SYMPHONY X). Wicher’s took a moment recently to talk about what it was like to produce his own band after working with so many other great artists:

“Producing SOILWORK was great challenge for me but also one of the greatest experiences of my career. I can honestly say that I’ve never worked this hard on any record that I’ve produced, but it was all worth it. I am super happy with the performances from all the guys, and I don’t think SOILWORK has ever sounded this good.

My approach for this record was to try and keep an open mind to the overall sonic picture, without letting my own ego take over (I am a guitar player after all, haha). By doing so, I think everyone on this record got a chance to shine, and that was my main goal. I’m super proud of this record and I know that even if you’re an ‘Old School’ or ‘New Listener’ to SOILWORK, this album has something for both. There are some insane fast and furious songs with insane blast beats, as well as groove. There’s also a balance with songs that have some beautiful guitars/vocals and keyboard melodies.

This is the best album SOILWORK has ever done!”
