According to Nuclear Blast, the Visionary Swedish metallers SOILWORK will re-release their breakthrough 2001 album, A Predator’s Portrait, as a deluxe digi-pak on October 15th with all new artwork plus two previously unreleased live bonus tracks.
Drummer Dirk Verbeuren outlines why the album is a milestone for the band:
“It’s our first recording for Nuclear Blast, still our home to this day, six albums later. It marks the first time Björn ‘Speed’ Strid pushed his vocal talents into the melodic realm and it concludes the early SOILWORK years, with the  follow-up, Natural Born Chaos, starting something new and different altogether. Now that we’ve come full circle with our ninth album The Living Infinite, the time is right to revisit A Predator’s Portrait. This ultimate re-release comes with re-imagined artwork by original cover artist and [then] SOILWORK keyboardist Carlos Del Olmo Holmberg as well as two live renditions of classic APP tracks performed by the band’s current line-up during the 2013 North American Infinity tour. Enjoy this piece of Pure Swedish Melodic Mayhem!”
