    Hi folks..

    The vocals have been recorded now and there's been some changes.
    Rogga is still here, Granvik too (doing some backing vocals only) Peter Tägtgren won't be there though, because Rogga suprised both himself and me by pulling off some really amazing "Åkerfeldt meets Dissection Jon" style highpitch vocals, and that was the kind of style I wanted him to do...the main change of course is the fact that I'M GROWLING!!!
    Oh yes..and you all go.....BUT YOU SAID......Yes, I know what I said and I really tried to growl a few weeks before recording the backing tracks, and It sounded awful, awful, awful....so how did this happen???
    I really don't know...but I guess it's psychological.
    When we were recording the vocals, I was bossing Rog and Gran around going "No, out of timing, sound more like me, etc etc." and after a while (and some beers in the system...) I just went up to the microphone and growled my heart out and it sounded good, REALLY GOOD!!! Everything just came back, and it was all there..the power, the rasp (The lungs were not though...) but anyway..so I ended up doing pretty much 50% of the vocals (Including the clean stuff) and there are some dual vocal parts between me and Rog, me and Gran aswell....

    Well, what can I say...my throat aches likes fuck and I have strained every muscle in my body, but It's worth it...it soundz great..and just when I grow tired of my own voice, Rog comes in and kick it!!! Variety rules....Still no news on the Lead guitars though..but I hope it'll be alright aswell...

    see ya

    Dan

    This completely made my day! I love your growls Dan, I'm so glad to hear you've "got it back" :)

    Damn, I'm honestly biting my toenails in anticipation for Crimson II......is it REALLY coming out in august? I'd be a happy boy if it does.

    In my opinion Dan's growls are about the best there is, so this is REALLY great news!!!!

    I have a feeling Crimson II will be the best Death metal record I've ever heard...not to mention the best Edge Of Sanity ever!!!!!

    You keep up the good work Dan!!!

    It's good news that you decided to contribute to the death vocals, Dan. That just about cancels out the disappointment of Peter Tägtgren not being there. :erk:

    I am now officially hyped for this album.

    I know I had some doubts when you first announced it, Dan (you may or may not remember), but it's hard to doubt you.
