Between the guitar riffing, the song structures, the ambient keys, and the hard-hitting drums, Soilwork has always been a huge inspiration in the Medda sound. The only thing that was missing was the vocals. Medda has, historically, been an instrumental project. But with the new Fission EP, the concept was to bring to life a darker side of Medda. And to fully realize that sound, it needed to have vocals. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with some great vocalists on this EP, and the first of which is none other than the man that defines the Soilwork sound himself — Björn “Speed” Strid.
It was such a pleasure to work with one of my idols in music, and I can’t wait for you all to hear the song he’s featured on when the EP releases — October 9!
