  • The Panic Broadcast marks the return of guitarist Peter "Vicious" Wichers after five years away from Soilwork, which is big news if one has been following this Swedish metal band for a long time. Wichers was part of Soilwork's original 1997 lineup and left the combo in 2005; he was a vital part of albums like 1998's Steelbath Suicide, 2000's The Chainheart Machine, and 2002's Natural Born Chaos, and he is clearly a vital part of 2010's The Panic Broadcast. So is lead singer Bj?rn "Speed" Strid, who is as convincing on the extreme vocals as he is on the clean vocals. Strid and Wichers sound like they are really glad to be reunited, and they also sound like they have been spending a lot of time in the United States -- where metalcore has been a big part of the metal scene in the 21st century. The Panic Broadcast doesn't offer a strictly Scandinavian metal sound, but rather has a strong American influence and favors a combination of melodic hardcore, melodic death metal, and alternative metal. In fact, most of the extreme vocals that Strid provides on this 47-minute CD are in the metalcore/hardcore vein (as opposed to death metal-style Cookie Monster growls), and Strid obviously takes the clean vocals as seriously as he takes the extreme vocals. The clean vocals aren't a mere afterthought any more than the melodies are a mere afterthought; they are an integral part of Soilwork's vision on an album that values melody, musicality, and nuance as much as it values aggression and intensity. And the other four members of Soilwork's 2010 lineup (guitarist Sylvain Coudret, bassist Ola Flink, keyboardist Sven Karlsson, and drummer Dirk Verbeuren) handle the melody/brutality juxtaposition as skillfully as Strid and Wichers. The Panic Broadcast is a fine example of what Soilwork have to offer after 13 years in the mosh pit. ~ Alex Henderson

Alternative Press (p.152) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The combination of straight-up thrash with bucketfuls of melody is a sound they've perfected..."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.52) - "'Deliverance Is Mine' is cynical and bitter while remaining enormously tuneful....It's a consistently muscular return..."
