    what? who?

    if you talk about ABBA, they had sold 200 million album when they split up in 1983, and hve doubled it since then.

    Finland and Sweden are both quite expensive countries because of tax rates. However, both have a high social security so I guess even Mikael and the band brobably enjoy - or have enjoyed - some of the fruits of the so called Nordic model. Furthermore, because of the tax systems are progressive, they're not forced to pay that much.

    i dont care. im glad they are "mainstream". that means i can buy their stuff without having to order it from over seas. and that there are plenty of band shirts avalable. unlike some bands.... *cough* vintersorg*cough cough*

    Speaking of In Flames, they pretty much sold out with Colony.

    Indeed it was. But Colony had a really mainstream sound.

    Yeah, but Colony was fucking awesome. Anyway, Opeth only got a little bit mainstream with Watershed and a little bit with Ghost Reveries.

    Not that much, but it was one of the best album with Whoracle and The Jester Race. Great stuff. Well Reroute to Remain was also good, but just for some songs particularly.

    If talking about this alleged Opeth mainstream thing, if Opeth were a tightly commercial band they'd had started with material like Damnation in the first place.

    What categories of audience did Ghost Reveries or Watershed reach and they bought the album?
