According to Blabbermouth.net, the Swedish metallers SOILWORK will release a lavish deluxe version of their 2001 classic breakthrough album “A Predator’s Portrait” on October 18 in Europe and October 15 in the U.S. The effort will be reissued as a digipack with an all new artwork and will contain two previously unreleased live bonus tracks.
Commented drummer Dirk Verbeuren: “I view ‘A Predator’s Portrait’ as a milestone in several ways. 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 pushes his vocal talents into the melodic realm. And it concludes the early SOILWORK years, with 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 SOILWORK keyboardist Carlos Del Olmo Holmberg as well as two live renditions of classic ‘A Predator’s Portrait’ tracks performed by the band’s current lineup during the 2013 North American Infinity tour. “Enjoy this piece of pure Swedish melodic mayhem!”
