Swedish icons Soilwork have announced their most daring and ambitious project to date with their EP A Whisp of the Atlantic to be released on December 4.
The EP serves not only as the completion of The Feverish Trinity but also invites you to dive deep with them into mans most primal element – water.
Starting with “Feverish” and ending with “A Whisp Of The Atlantic”, the whole EP is a journey from the rage of individuals to the search for something that replaces religion. “From the desire of Feverish, the urge of Desperado, the determinism of Death Diviner, the insights and questions of The Nothingness and the Devil and the acceptance and spiritual searching of A Whisp of the Atlantic. The whole song and video sequence is like a slightly different take on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. It’s all about realising that we’re all stuck on this rock and that we need to find something more inclusive than religion to get through this together. Because in the end, we’re all outsiders, genetically hunter-gatherers trying to fit in in a world that we created but at the same time wasn’t really made for us”, David Andersson sums up. “The overarching theme is liberation from the extremely low level of the social and cultural debate these days, and it starts with the fundamentals and ends with the phenomenological. From liberation into ascension.”
