    Me too. The songs are great, but it's not hard to tell that Dan hadn't hit puberty yet, when it comes to his vocals! :D

    The Weirdest Of Tales should sound pretty stellar as well, with re-recorded vocals. That one is the best Unicorn demo, IMO.

    I so wish Dan would get back together with Bloodbath now that Mikael is back. They lost their magic with him gone. The new album is good, but it still feels "empty", if that makes sense.

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

    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?

    What's taking so damn long? I've been waiting for Obliterhate for years and they didn't even tell us what the hell is happening with that???
