I think most of us here would view this as an absurd observation. Because it is! Haha.

Yep!! You read it right...and it sounds better than ever!!

But I am only able to sing like 8 lines of lyrics before I completely mess up my throat, and the worst is the headaches and the feeling of being run over by a bulldozer from hell!
So, I won't be doing all the "evil" vocals. I have 3 other guys that will split the burden with me, and also bring some variety to the growled sections.
But there will be at least one section of growls from me, per song.
But I will do all the normal singing. Which ranges from mellow, old Nightingale "deep voice" to the more angry Dio flavored voice featured on Star One II.

We had a Witherscape session this very day, and we completed the guitars and bass for yet another song from the pre-production.
2 more to go, and then we'll start all over again, with more attention to detail. It's a tough job, since we are recording without a click track
(we both think most good songs were recorded without it... Let the song live!!) but once we nail the takes, it feels really alive and breathing!
Wonderful! When do you think this'll be released? Looking forward to listening to it... I have always thought Edge of Sanity (and Pan.Thy.Monium as well) riffs were influenced by classic metal or even hard rock... then the idea of mixing heavy metal and death metal in such an explicit way makes me very excited.
I hope I'll be able to listen to this within next spring...

Hah, I come here to check if Dan's been up to anything lately and find this. Cool to hear he's getting back to business with new releases

Whatever happened to Obliterhate? That seemed to vanish into Oblivion. Who knows if this new project will ever be released. If I was Mr Swano I would be releasing albums like a mad scientist. There is too much to write about, and plenty of inspiration. There is an underground cult following, and once you have that you have a strong fanbase like Bathory.


musician can always finds sources of inspiration, and the there should never be the bottom of the barrell or a dry well of thoughts and ideas. If this is the case you might as well just quit trying and change your profession.

I think Dan could release "something" all the time, but he really wants it to have a very high quality, which I esteem in the days of an already very flooded music market.

"musician can always finds sources of inspiration, and the there should never be the bottom of the barrell or a dry well of thoughts and ideas. If this is the case you might as well just quit trying and change your profession".

Uhhhh…huh? Sometimes the well of creativity can *temporarily* run dry, whether you're Mr. Swanö or not. It's only human to run out of inspiration from time to time. Running out of inspiration and, as a consequence, taking a break can be the best form of finding inspiration there is. I would think it impossible to constantly release albums, and constantly write music--you'd either go crazy, or release mediocre stuff. Anyone with a creative bent needs to experience times of boredom, reflection, and angst if they're to truly stay creative. I fully agree with Skaldir's statement above. Like good old Boltthrower, don't release something unless you're 99% sure of it's quality. Otherwise, why release it?

I'm starting to loose interest. I've waiting around here with all these false promises, people are starting to get pissed off. Wake up Mr Swano, you do have a fanbase believe it or not. Do you care to even acknowledge that?! I don't know if you are, but if you care people are starting to get irritated.

I can wait as long as Dan needs to release the things he's promised. He's been doing this for a LONG time, he knows what he's doing. He easily could have never told us anything about what is coming.

Speak for yourself.
I totally support Dan's or Bolt Thrower attitude towards their own future releases.If they don't feel satisfied enough with their new material, they shouldn't release it until they feel it's right and not the fans.Releasing an album that an artist isn't fully content with, now that's total disrespectful for his fanbase, not what you mention here.I'll rather hear another great Swano release ten years from now than a mediocre or only good album released next month.
As for Obliterhate i don't think Dan is to blame for the delay since his part for that release was done a long time ago ->http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/bla...wsitemID=90648

Well, those people can piss right the fuck off! Dan doesn't owe them anything. He will release something when he's ready.

No artist owes "fans" anything, unless they've paid for it. And to be quite honest, if as many people who claim to be Swano fans actually paid for his music, he'd probably be quite wealthy.

Either way, real fans don't get irritated. Assholes do.
