Skyblood album almost written.

posted in February 17th 2019
Hi everyone!

Just a quick update on the album:

I'm almost finished writing the last song for the Skyblood album.
I'll need to record drums separately for this one, all the other tracks already have drums recorded
by Axe, Snowy and Petter. 

I expect to have it all ready for mastering at the end of May.

In a couple of days I'll let you know more about a few shows I'm doing with some good swedish friends in march.
Also, in May I'll most probably do a festival (as a guest) with a band I've done many shows with in the past!

More news next week,

The Future

posted in September 26th 2018
Hi everyone!

As most of you know by now, I'm no longer with Candlemass.

This lets me finally focus 100% on my solo material, I'll have a master ready before next summer and hope to release it in sep/oct 2019. Negotiating contract right now.

In nov-dec I'll join Trans-Siberian Orchestra for my third consecutive year, looking forward to meeting colleagues and fans again!
