First off I have to be honest and tell you that I have purchased every Soilwork release, paid to see them in concert four times, and have three tour shirts in my extensive collection. I am most unashamedly a fan. Which is why this release had me worried for two reasons. One, the last time the band hit the studio without Peter Wichers it resulted in their weakest release, Sworn To A great Divide. And two, double albums have brought a lot of bands to their knees, exposing egos that can't cut the chaff, resulting in a lot of filler songs seeing the light of day.
Thankfully, Soilwork have proven to me with The Living Infinite that my fears were completely unfounded, and that they truly are at the top of the Swedish metal pile. Which is saying something when you stop and consider the amazing amount of quality that has come out of their homeland ever since we were blessed with At The Gates seminal Slaughter Of The Soul. The Living Infinite is a fantastic example of the Gothenburg sound, showcasing why this brand of music has grabbed so many fans world wide and why it's been so influential with other metal musicians.
The thing that grabbed me upon finishing my first listen to this twenty song collection, is how well constructed each and every song on The Living Infinite is. Showing a level of song writing maturity that few others have been able to obtain consistently over a double album release. When you add to this the amount of huge hooks, the choruses that worm their way into your brain, the level of musicianship, the excellent uncluttered production, and the European sensibility in their soloing, you have a double album that really needs to be in the collection of all discerning metalheads. Nine albums into a bands output it is unfortunately unusual to be this pleasantly surprised.

For a band such as Soilwork to decide to record a double album does seem would require a questionable motive. However, judging by Soilwork's back catalogue you should be left in little doubt that maybe the Swede's can pull off 20 new songs without boring the listener. Thankfully, that is exactly what they have done. In the midst of this mighty challenege, Soilwork have managed to create a consistent, melodious album whereby almost every song offers one giant hook and one infectious chorus. The best characteristic of 'The Living Infinite' could be the consistency of the songs: the dynamic flow of the 20 songs feels what seems like a small portion of its nearly 90 minute duration. Soilwork waste none of this time in exploding into 'Spectrum of Eternity' followed by stupidly catchy tracks such as 'The Momentary Bliss' and 'Tongue'. Along the journey of this album a few stand out moments are found ranging from the progressive 'The Windswept Mercy' to the dish of melodies that are churned out of 'Leech'. If Soilwork have magnificently managed to pull off this challenge, who know's what they'll do next...

I found this album extremely addictive! There's tonnes of really epic, catchy melodies in this 20 track beast of a album, but Soilwork haven't forgotten their roots and have brought back more of that powerful riffage that will sound familier to fans of the 'A Predator' s Portrait' album. A must buy for any Soilwork fan!

From the opening of the first track you know this is gonna be good. Blew me away! It's absolutely stunning and probably the best album they've done. I can not wait to see this live. If you know Soilwork you will love this, if you don't know them.....why??? Buy it, whack it on 11 and enjoy.

This could be the accolade of Soilwork, the highest peak of their career.

They even could be smarter and produce 2 separate album.

If Strid had used more clean vocals it would have been the Masterpiece, it's almost.

For me it's 9/10

I knew Soilwork's new album would be good but I was totally blown away by just how good it was! Both discs are amazing from start to finish. I am leaning towards the second disc as my favorite individually but when both discs are played one after the other the experience is even more mind blowing!

it almost feels like a blatant lie when i say this 80 minute double album feels lean and streamlined but i speak the truth, this is jaw breaking with a vast smile good.
The band have released a lock of plummy albums in recent years, good at the time maybe but time passed and the shine faded, i dont envisage that happening here. This is heartwarming brilliance, arrogant, focused, sublime and tasty.

An absolutely tremendous return to form - in fact, that's not a fair statement - this is the BEST iteration of Soilwork there has ever been.

Those doubting this line-up due to the lack of Peter Wichers need not worry - this is a spectacular example of their skills as songsmiths and players.

Cannot recommend this album highly enough.
