Melodic metallers SOILWORK are set to release their highly anticipated first ever live DVD/BluRay Live In The Heart Of Helsinki on the 16th of March via Nuclear Blast.

Biggs (SONIC SYNDICATE). Today sees the release of the first track on the DVD, ‘This Momentary Bliss’ – watch over on YouTube, below:
Frontman Björn ‘Speed’ Strid commented: “There could’ve not been a better time than now, with 10 albums out and a very varied back catalogue to choose from. Our line up now is 50 % original members and 50 % fresh blood, which makes it all more interesting. Especially since the newest members have brought so much to our sound and have continued to inspire us to write new and exciting music and also brought a new found energy on stage. Now is definitely the time to see us. Trust me.”
The DVD was produced by Jouni Markkanen and directed by Ville Lipiäinen who also worked on the most recent NIGHTWISH DVD Showtime, Storytime.
