Swedish metallers Soilwork will release a new EP, "A Whisp Of The Atlantic". on December 4 on the label Nuclear Blast. The official music for the first single from the effort is "The Nothingness And The Devil".
Guitarist David Andersson states: "'The Nothingness And The Devil' is a song about how the old concept of a patriarchal God doesn't work anymore, and how everyone with any logic reasoning must accept that we have to create our own deities, if we need them.
Or if we don't, we'll have to accept the fact that our lives are essentially meaningless unless we are able to find our meaning and make ourselves feel fulfilled. The video also hints at the emasculation of a male god, and how gender shouldn't be a factor in any form of religious discourse anymore. Perhaps this is the time to question your beliefs and accept that no God will correct the mess that we all have put ourselves into."
SOILWORK's musical and their philosophical approach on the new EP does not only close the circle of the "The Feverish Trinity" but also invites the listener to dive deep into the most primal element: Water. Starting with "Feverish" and ending with "A Whisp Of The Atlantic", the whole EP is a journey from the rage of individuals to the search for something that replaces religion.
