Founded by the powerhouse team of Adrenaline PR CEO Maria Ferrero, former MegaForce Records and Crazed Management owners Jon and Marsha Zazula, and Testament vocalist and co-manager Chuck Billy— these individuals have joined forces to merge their experience and bring some new, unknown bands to the forefront, as well as develop and guide the continuing careers of some of today’s most well-established artists. Combined, Chuck, Maria, Jon, and Marsha bring decades of experience to the table, from their individual beginnings at the very introduction of the heavy metal genre in the 1980’s.
SOILWORK has signed with Breaking Bands, LLC for Management
metal eminence SOILWORK was spawned in Helsingborg, anno 1995 by guitarist
Peter Wichers and vocalist Björn "Speed" Strid. Following two highly
acclaimed albums on Listenable Records, SOILWORK joined the Nuclear Blast
roster, releasing a new bombshell each year and touring relentlessly in North
America, Europe, Australia and Japan. The band’s unique blend of melodic metal
developed at a staggering rate, most notably on the Devin Townsend produced
“Natural Born Chaos”, the first SOILWORK recording to fully display Björn
“Speed” Strid’s knack for majestic melodies. The 2002 album also saw the
arrival of keyboard virtuoso Sven Karlsson. In 2005, SOILWORK was joined by
drummer extraordinaire Dirk Verbeuren and released “Stabbing The Drama” which
quickly became a landmark release, highlighted by an 18 month world tour and a
spot on Ozzfest alongside headliners Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden. Despite a
few line-up shuffles, SOILWORK and their iconic long time bassist Ola Flink
continued to conquer fans worldwide, recording two more outstanding albums and
touring relentlessly alongside bands such as Lamb of God and Killswitch Engage.
In 2012, with guitar tandem Sylvain Coudret and David Andersson on board,
SOILWORK spent eight months writing and recording “The Living Infinite”, the
first double album in melodic death metal history. Adventurous yet true to the
band’s identity, this Jens Bogren produced twenty song powerhouse is the
ultimate proof that SOILWORK are true masters of their art, and as relevant as ever!
