Soilwork are currently building up to the release of their 10th studio album, “The Ride Majestic”. One of the main selling points thus far is the single “Enemeies In Fidelity” which was initially released last month. Now, the band is following up the single with a brand new music video! Frontman Björn “Speed” Strid had the following to say of this:
“The video for “Enemies In Fidelity” captures the hardship of maintaining friendships between friends or lovers and how the struggle sometimes gets addictive, very often to a point where you lose yourself and hatred takes over.”
When the track was first released as a single, he also had the following to say:
“Enemies in Fidelity is indeed a very melodic and atmospheric beast. This was one of the first songs that I wrote for the new album and it holds a lot of surprises. The chorus almost sounds as if Simon and Garfunkel started a black metal band. That’s the way we like it – playful, dark, intense and melancholic. It definitely stands out, but also gives you an overall idea of what SOILWORK currently is about.
The lyrics deal with whether you should escape or succumb to the suffering that you might experience in your life, in order to find new strength. The ambivalence. The guilt and the respect towards your own existence. Being awakened and finding satisfaction through frustration and anger, to a point where it almost becomes addictive. Enjoy!”
