    Hi there!!

    I figured there would be a lot of questions
    circulating about "me out of Bloodbath" so
    I just would like to make a few comments
    before the rumours kicks in.

    I recieved an email from Blakkheim today
    where I saw that my services as a member of
    Bloodbath was no longer required.
    I Must admit I didn´t see that one coming!!
    But... can totally see what the other guys
    are thinking about.
    (Tried to do the same to the E.O.S. guys in 97
    .......but that one backfired pretty badly..ha, ha!!)

    Blakkheim and Jonas are touring musicians,
    living off their metal and I would just be
    "in their way" with the constant
    "Sorry I can´t go on tour because bla bla bla", that´s cool..

    Concerning the musical differences, I am a bit confused.
    As far as I can remember,
    I haven´t even discussed the direction of my
    future Bloodbath tracks.
    The announcement say that I tried to get
    Bloodbath in a Moontower/Crimson direction...that is not right...

    I have toyed with the idea to make a new album,
    using my own name, and revisit the
    style of those albums...oh yes...
    what is a bit funny is that I actually wanted
    to write a bit more brutal songs for
    Bloodbath the next time.

    I got inspired by working with the Coldworker
    album and the urge to write some complex,
    fast fucken brutal death came creeping back.
    (I have not always written TRL-Death Metal u know..
    Infestdead and some of the early E.O.S.
    material is kind of brutal, isn´t it???)

    Anyway. I just wanted to clearify
    that I was NOT trying to pussify Bloodbath
    and therefore got kicked out...
    where this rumour came from and how the guys
    (without asking) just decided that I was on a
    different level musically..remains a mystery.

    I wish the guys all the best and hope they ask
    nice if they can play my songs live for you
    guys :)

    Open the lines of communication and let's all forget about this and act like it was just a BAD DREAM! (I wish) :(

    I agree, its never too late. But i guess the lack of time is the big problem here.

    Bloodbath is dead for me now.. there's no even reason to see them live if there's no Swan&#246; & &#197;kerfeldt. It would feel like some cover band playing :(

    Looking forward to Moontower II OR Crimson III :)
