    How about this?
    Have Martin or Niklas play the bass
    and only have one guitar player in the band -

    If they do so, they should change their name to Dark Tranquility.


    Personally, I wouldn't want Martin back on bass. He's doing a wonderful job on the guitar and to have him back there sounds like going back to things that once were...Oh hell, I'm almost arguing with myself writing this. No matter what happens, I just hope the new member will bring in new ideas and participate to the band's ongoing evolution.

    I wish Michael all the best, and that he finds happiness in doing whatever he wants. Also, I hope the band goes on fine, and I think they will, not to diminish what Michael did. He will be missed.

    @villain: henriksson back to the bass would be awesome, and finding a new guitarist it's maybe easier than finding a bassist!

    @la roque: DT has to have 2 guitars, it's not ska-punk or something :p

    Best of luck with whatever you choose to do next, Michael.


    I don't like the idea of the DVD being recorded with a session bassist. If they don't have a new permanent replacement by then, maybe Micke should come back for a farewell show..

    Who said I died? I've only been in a coma once hehe. I just changed my name and don't post here anymore :p .

    Assuredly, they could make the farewell show and the show for the DVD the same, I'm sure we fans wouldn't mind :) .

    Really, it's a pity that he just left, a farewell show in which fans would show him how much he is appreciated would have been really nice :Smug: .

    It is actually Siren's joke. She pulled off that one when I just wrote QFT once.

    I play the bass, and without being too bigheaded about it, pretty well indeed

    DT are my favourite band of all time, does anyone have any objections to me being the new full time member? I would so love to be, it'd basically complete my life

    I really hope Micke finds joy in his future life and career, and I'm sure however difficult the decision was to leave the band, he made it for the right reasons. He was great when I met him, and will be missed from their live set up.

    I agree, the DVD would suck with a session player.

    ^ Then the DVD would suck with you :p .

    Well if you consider yourself a good player you might as well put a video of yourself playing on You-tube and show it to the band. Who knows, maybe they'll like it :) .

    It's up to the band, it's not like we have any say in it. Without wanting to be harsh and knowing that my opinion is just my opinion and nothing else, my guess would be that the new member needs to be someone equal with an already complete life, perhaps a friend of theirs or someone they already know. Having a fanboy as a bass player would be scary, at least for me. That said, you can always get in touch with the band for yourself.

    yeah i think you're right, it's sure as hell a long shot

    another thing is of course that my swedish is at present, non-existent, which can't really help my case, though I'm pretty good with languages :)

    will be interesting to see who they choose to take his place, would be nice if the fans had a say, or even a chance to have a go themselves :D

    Maybe if Niklas is online sometime soon I could have a word, because the thing is, I would quite happily give up my life and get going, I don't have a family or anything so there's nothing holding me back :p
