    An Ibanez LACS with a custom-made 3-coil Lundgren and a Kahler bridge.

    Yeah I saw that too, really curious about what the 'motherbucker' sounds like.
    Wonder where / if it is on any of the records.

    There is a studio magazine here in sweden called, well studio haha and a couple of years ago they did an interview with Fredrik in regards to Koloss. They did a brief rundown of the track "I am colossus" in terms of how many tracks per intrument, drum layout etc and in that he states that it was the Triplebucker guitar that was used for that track. So that'd be one I guess.

    I don't think anyone else would really work with them. He has a very weird style where he sounds like he's just kinda yelling over the riffs sorta randomly, but it's incredibly precise. I don't think many people could do that while acting like a playful idiot on stage like him. Even if they could, they wouldn't have the same kinda scorched-earth vocal sound that he does at this point. Some bands like Vildhjarta or Tesseract or whatever have plenty of yelled vocals that are a similar style, but the difference in sound is like a chihuahua next to a pitbull.

    I think there's a tremendous difference between his style on the first few albums and Nothing/everything since, and I definitely think his high point was on Chaosphere, but he's always fit the music perfectly. They could get some random screamy guy in there, but it wouldn't be the same.

    And god forbid they ever got some guy that tried to throw some poppy clean vocals in there like Periphery or Tesseract or whatever!

    the way I see them is a completely rhythmic band . like the whole band is a big percussion ensemble , and I think that extends to the vocals . its more about the rhythm than the tonality

    Totally late to the party here, but that new track was insane. Loved the vocals too, for what it's worth.

    Had to google it when someone said Jens was 50 though :lol: Dude looks maybe 35, tops.

    Wow, he really is! That's insane. I guess being bald makes you look ageless. Sorta like people who wear a toupee from a tender age (ex Shatner).

    the first reviews of the album say it's insanely heavy.

    I'm waiting my limited edition box set with the mask, so the power of djent will help me do robberies

    Even with the ridiculous English translation I get the chills from reading that review.
