Steelbath Suicide is Soilwork's first album and was (first) released in 1998. Soilwork scored the deal with Listenable Records, a French recording label, after their first and only demo In Dreams We Fall Into the Eternal Lake.

This is Ola Fink's (bassist) and Carlos Holmberg's (keyboardist) first album with Soilwork. On the otherhand, it was the first and only album for both Ludvig Svartz (lead and rhythm guitar) and Jimmy Persson (drums).

The tracks on this album are short (half of them don't break three minutes and the average track is three minutes and fourteen seconds) and fast.

It was released a second time by Listenable Records in 2000 and by Century Media in 2001.
