    Live from festival in sweden this summer... however I must say that Stannes vocals sounds awful though, so far ( im currently listening to song number three). Really hope he wont sound like this at Debaser on the 4th : )

    Edit: The soundquality is great and for those who hasnt heard the new material live in decent quality its a must

    I'm currently enjoying this. :) This is fantastic, it makes me happy. Mikael's vocals are not perfect, but not terrible either.

    I can't wait to see them again. I'll never get tired of live DT. Just hearing the audience in the background makes me long for them to come back to Canada.

    Really good, thanks a lot for the link! :dopey:

    I am transfixed with The Grandest Accusation live, what an excellent song!

    Mikael's vocals sound weak, but I wouldn't say "awful". That's what touring does to a singer, it's only natural that he won't sing "perfectly" in every gig and song. I do notice that he starts to sing better in Misery's Crown (really, what a great song!). Lost to Apathy sounds marvelous (I liked that he didn't sing in one part, didn't notice the keyboards there until now).

    Hehe and as usual Mikael changes some of the lyrics of the song, did he actually sing in Svenska in Terminus hehe?

    Nice gig, takk!

    He does sound better a bit into the set, i noticed this is the case with almost all liverecordings, guess he has to get warm : ) I mean, for being MIKAEL it sounds awful, in relation to other deathsingers it sounds decent. But he can do so much better. The unique thing about him is his ability to sing powerful and harsch but at the same time integrate melody and variation + ,the tunes, this concert sounds more just like fullon. Also his clean singing is not close to what it can be. And yes, grandest (apart from that mikael destroys the clean parts : ) sounds totally amazing.

    ^ Yeah, he certainly sounds weak by his standards :p , and agreed, the clean singing wasn't good.

    Brilliaaaaant, something like "Där döden är mest levande"? I know, literal translation, but sue me, my Svenska is still quite basic.

    Or maybe "Den svatter dansar på stranden?" *tu tu tun tu tun tuk tuk*.

    Maybe some of you'll get the reference. It'd be awesome if Mikael sung that in Terminus :kickass:

    Uh, no, as far as I can remember, the only Swedish part was "This is a ghost town". Might be wrong though :p

    It's weird because on the album Mikael sounds so strong and heavy and then you watch live videos on Youtube or some crap and he sounds sub-par.

    But I had the great opportunity of seeing him live. he is AMAZING. He goes SO MUCH HIGHER than he does on the albums--he is so much better live than he is in the studio!!!

    Hurrah! :kickass: Interesting to see that it's a "spook" town, since "ghost" is "spöke". However, ghost n. is

    O.E. gast "soul, spirit, life, breath," from P.Gmc. *ghoizdoz (cf. O.S. gest, O.Fris. jest, M.Du. gheest, Ger. Geist "spirit, ghost"), from PIE base *ghois- "to be excited, frightened" (cf. Skt. hedah "wrath;" Avestan zaesha- "horrible, frightful;" Goth. usgaisjan, O.E. gæstan "to frighten"). This was the usual W.Gmc. word for "supernatural being," and the primary sense seems to have been connected to the idea of "to wound, tear, pull to pieces." The surviving O.E. senses, however, are in Christian writing, where it is used to render L. spiritus, a sense preserved in Holy Ghost. Modern sense of "disembodied spirit of a dead person" is attested from late 14c. and returns the word toward its ancient sense. Most IE words for "soul, spirit" also double with reference to supernatural spirits. Many have a base sense of "appearance" (e.g. Gk. phantasma; Fr. spectre; Pol. widmo, from O.C.S. videti "to see;" O.E. scin, O.H.G. giskin, originally "appearance, apparition," related to O.E. scinan, O.H.G. skinan "to shine"). Other concepts are in Fr. revenant, lit. "returning" (from the other world), O.N. aptr-ganga, lit. "back-comer." Bret. bugelnoz is lit. "night-child." L. manes, lit. "the good ones," is a euphemism. The gh- spelling appeared early 15c. in Caxton, influenced by Flem. and M.Du. gheest, but was rare in English before mid-16c. Sense of "slight suggestion" (in ghost image, ghost of a chance, etc.) is first recorded 1610s; that in ghost writing is from 1884, but that term is not found until 1927. Ghost town is from 1931. Ghost in the machine was Gilbert Ryle's term (1949) for "the mind viewed as separate from the body",

    whilst spook n. is

    1801, from Du. spook, from M.Du. spooc "spook, ghost," from a common Germanic source (cf. Ger. Spuk "ghost, apparition," M.L.G. spok "spook," Swed. spok "scarecrow," Norw. spjok "ghost, specter," Dan. spøg "joke"), of unknown origin. Possible outside connections include Lettish spigana "dragon, witch," spiganis "will o' the wisp," Lith. spingu, spingeti "to shine," O.Pruss. spanksti "spark." Meaning "undercover agent" is attested from 1942. The derogatory racial sense of "black person" is attested from 1940s, perhaps from notion of dark skin being difficult to see at night. Black pilots trained at Tuskegee Institute during World War II called themselves the Spookwaffe. The verb is first recorded 1867 in sense of "to walk or act like a ghost;" meaning "to unnerve" is from 1935. Related: Spooked; spooking.
