New Soilwork band member Marcus Wibom has some big shoes to fill of Ola Flink, who left just before the release of the latest album The Ride Majestic (Nuclear Blast Records, 2015). In the memory of many super energetic perfomances by Flink, Marcus Wibom filled not only the shoes of his predecessor, but also all square metres of the stage at KB, Malmö, this Friday evening November 27, 2015. A little bit of a new character of Soilwork, but millions of thanks to Ola Flink for all the wonderful music you have given over the years. Soilwork is world class this evening. All technical problems of microphones and sound is taken care of by Soilwork’s intensive and packaged performance. The album has received the lowest and the highest scores in Swedish reviews, but the metalsouth concept of finding the positive energy in the creative work of hard working musicans says that the album and the show performed is World Class!

The first entrance on stage this evening was French melodic death metalists T.A.N.K. – Think of A New Kind, which immediately created a good atmosphere and got the audience going. As being the first support T.A.N.K. really connected to us metalheads on the floor. A great start of a great evening. Already here we felt that the mimimal 295 SEK (30 EUR) for the ticket was well invested with a quick pay back!

When normally at KB the support has concluded the main act would enter the stage, but this evening guests at KB would really get their thirst for melodic death metal quenched. Danish Hatesphere entered and chances of a successful multicultural metal evening were obvious. Loads of fun and generous references from singer Esben ‘Esse’ Hansen on the recent football win of Sweden’s (or read Zlatan I’s two crucial goals) national team over Denmark in the European qualification play off round were stated. We’re happy to have met these intense Danish guys and the trifold efforts together with T.A.N.K. and Soilwork made this evening one of the best.
