Meshuggah Guitarist Working On New Solo Album With Soilwork Drummer

Posted May 18, 2010, 12:16 p.m. in Records by Jon E.

Meshuggah guitarist Fredrik Thordendal has been working on a new solo album as of late under the moniker of “Fredrik Thordendal’s Special Defects“. Soilwork drummer Dirk Verbeuren has been recruited to handle the drumming for the effort and offered the following on the project:

“What a dream come true! Fredrik has been very supportive of my career for many years in many ways, and I respect him immensely both as a musician and songwriter. It was huge for SCARVE to be asked to open for MESHUGGAH and we’ve been in touch ever since. When Fredrik asked me to be a part of the second SPECIAL DEFECTS record, I just couldn’t believe it! Now that I have the SOILWORK album under my belt, it’s exciting to dive into a completely different challenge where my drum parts will be based on improvisation more than anything else.”
