Swedish Metallers Soilwork Bring ‘Infinite’ Headbanging to New York City
With their ninth studio ‘The Living Infinite’ under their belt, Soilwork are currently on tour in North America and they kicked off the weekend with a stellar show in New York City on Friday night (March 15) with support from Jeff Loomis, Blackguard, Bonded Blood and Hatchet.
Soilwork took the stage and performed a high energy set to a packed house at Gramercy Theater. They kicked off their show with a new track ‘The Momentary Bliss.’ They also performed other tunes from their latest double disc ‘The Living Infinite’ such as ‘Spectrum of Eternity,’ ‘Tongue’ and current single ‘Rise Above the Sentiment.’
Throughout the performance, mosh pits opened up and crowd surfers came alive continuously one after the other as they made their way towards the stage. For old school Soilwork fans, the band also played ‘Like the Average Stalker,’ ‘Weapon of Vanity’ and ‘Stabbing the Drama.’ They ended their set with fan favorites ‘As We Speak’ and ‘Late for the Kill, Early for the Slaughter.’
Jeff Loomis’ blistering set may have been instrumental but it definitely left ears piercing as his serious riffage took fans by storm.
Canadian metal band Blackguard exploded onto the stage with a forceful performance. Not to mention drummer Justine Ethier had incredible power behind the skins. Overall fans definitely dug their performance and no doubt Blackguard gained some American fans when their set was finished.
California band Bonded by Blood had a vigorous set with some serious hair flying action. The crowd headbanged and fist pumped their way through most of their gig.
Fellow West Coast band Hatchet opened up the show with an energetic performance. To see a list of remaining dates and cities where you can catch all of these bands, go here.
