I wasn't really expecting much more out of them. The last album was sweet, though

STAGD was pretty decent so no major loss.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Oh well, Soilwork have pretty much done as much as they can do anyway, don't know if their next album will be worthwhile.

The Panic Broadcast was great, hoping they can keep up the momentum of it.

They should just stop now.

I think the only original member that's left is Bjorn.

Ola is still left (the bassist).

It's a major loss but they will be fine...

I'm still really excited for The Living Infinite. The only thing I'm scared about is that the last time Wichers left Figure Number Five was released, which I see as their weakest album

Leaving again? Probably better considering the quality of the band's recent work

Soilwork was good from 2000-2002 (Chainheart Machine, A Predator's Portrait, Natural Born Chaos); they've been on the downhill hard since then, so good for Wichers for leaving.

Very curious to where Wichers is heading. Hope he finds a better set of musicians to work with

Tokamak, Wichers was still in the band when they made that, and its actually a pretty good album with catchy as fuck songs. Do you mean sworn to a great divide? thats the only wicherless album.

"Creative differences," also known as "we got super drunk and told him to fuck off."
