Swedish visionary metallers SOILWORK have released a brand new song called ‘Desperado’. It is the second installment in SOILWORK’s ‘Feverish’ triology, which might also eventually end up becoming a so far unknown entity. It follows the band’s globally acclaimed new album, »Verkligheten« (album of the month inMetal Hammer, Rock Hard, Aardschok and Scream), which was released in January 2019.
Watch the official music video for ‘Desperado’ here:
Commented the band:
“Desperado, just like Feverish, is a song about how a single emotion can overtake your entire being, and consume you like an almost sentient force. Desperado is about what lies behind and beyond, the places you normally avoid. But they will always be there. Desperado is shock rock and metal mayhem for those of us who long for a way out.”
The song was written and composed by David Andersson. The song was recorded at SolnaSound Recordings, Stockholm with Simon Johansson and The Panic Room, Skövde with Thomas Plec Johansson. Violin recorded by Rachel Hall.
“Desperado” was produced by SOILWORK and Thomas Plec Johansson and also mixed and mastered by Thomas Plec Johansson.
René U Valdes produced and directed the music video.
The band earlier about that concept:
“So, while the background and and motives are a bit sketchy, and the band seems reluctant to reveal too many details, SOILWORK will be releasing »The Feverish Trinity«over the next five months, a trilogy of songs with accompanying videos that, according to Soilwork, will ”celebrate the Babylonian Death Goddesses that once made the world a more Feverish and exciting place”.
