Soilwork is a Swedish melodic death metal band formed in late 1995, originally under the name of Inferior Breed. In 1996,they changed their
name to Soilwork, to better fit their new sound. Their unique sound is a fusion of the classic Gothenburg metal sound with power-groove riffs of
late 1970s, early 1980s British and European metal. Their more recent work has more singing and lighter melodies than their earlier work, as
well as a more polished production that brings out the strength of the drums. In 2005, the band began to gain minor commercial success in the
United States. Stabbing the Drama reached #12 and #21 on the Billboard Heatseeker and Independent album charts, respectively. They played
the 2005 Ozzfest, alongside fellow melodic death metal band, In Flames.
