9/10 … The first wave of “Swedish Death Metal” came from Stockholm (again, not to be confused with the Gothenburg sound from Swedens other coast), and consisted of the bands Carnage, Morbid and Nihilist, who fragmented later into Entombed, Dismember and Unleashed. Many of these bands used the trademark Tomas Skogsberg/Sunlight Studios “buzzsaw” guitar tone. It was created by using heavily detuned electric guitars (usually C# standard or lower), a maxed out Boss HM-2 Heavy Metal pedal (see YouTube video at the bottom of this page), sometimes in combination with a single guitar through a Boss DS-1 Distortion pedal. The originator of this guitar sound was Nihilist guitarist Leffe Cuzner, though it was evolved and altered over the years.

Ytterlännäs and Torsåker were both in the Diocese of Härnösand of the Lutheran Church of Sweden. Hornæus […]
This goes under “Random things I find interesting”. It is extremely facinating to watch how my town looked 106 years ago. The streets, the buildings, what people where wearing (seems to have been a law that said everyone must wear hats :-)). Places I now know have high-rises here looks like they’re far out on […]
I live in Sweden and today we have midsommarafton as it’s called but we celebrate it with getting together with families and friends, eat traditional food and drink aquavit (a 40% alcohol beverage), we do pick flowers and the girls put some in their hair. We also do dance around the pole dressed in flowers (midsommarstång) you see in the movie. But we don’t sacrifice anything, use psychedelic drugs or eat pubic hair pies 😂
