The sixth edition of the Finnish Alzheimer Association of Kanta-Hame’s “Music Improves Brain Health” campaign will feature Swedish metallers Soilwork supporting the cause.  Previous bands involved with this noble effort have included  Korpiklaani, Ensiferum, Insomnium, Turisas, Stam1na, and Turmion Kätilöt.

Says Soilwork Drummer Bastian Thusgaard:

“I think music is an outlet that allows us to express our feelings and connect to various states of mind. I believe that most people, whether they are aware of it to not, use music to channel their feelings and cope with both the good and bad in life. I truly believe that music is great for our mental health, and I’d say we all need music in our lives in order to function.”
