Recording of The Experiment no.Q (The second & forthcoming album)

 The Experiment no.Q
Recording in Torino, Italy June 3-8, 2015


Up at 03:30 am to go to the airport !

First to Munich and then another flight to Torino.
Paolo Vallerga picked me up and off we went to the studio.
Really nice to come back and meet my friends from this project again !
Paolo, Marco, Kevin, Mattia, Jacopo, the new female singer Oxy Hart from France + Massimo Bozza, this great musician with the 7-string bass !

We stayed at the same place as when we were here 2 years ago, up in the mountains at this house with the very beautiful view !

I had already recorded all the bass-tracks + some of the vocals in my own studio, so we just continued to
record some more of my vocal-tracks. It went on smoothly.


Wonderful to be back here in this little village outside Torino.
The weather is really good – Too Good in fact !
– I guess it´s about 30 degrees celcius in the shade and gazing sun !!!

My friends Andrea and Sara Pensalfine came in on the third day and Andrea did the filming for the forthcoming video from the album.
Bassplayer Massimo Bozza also arrived to record two of the songs for the album. Great guy !
7-string bass !!! Shit ! – I could never handle that ! I´m glad Paolo made him do it ! 😀

Everyday we had good Italian lunch and dinner together. Pizza, pasta – and you name it !

Oxy really fits good in this company ! – She´s almost as crazy as Linnéa ! 😀
And to have Kevin along makes you laugh so much that your face and belly hurts !!! 😀

This was really a fantastic time to spend here ! Mostly because of this great meeting with my friends, new friends and the music for the album, but also to relax ! I actually didn´t have very much to record, so I could take it very easy. Sometimes I really need that (we all do) but at home I very often push myself too much to do more things than I actually have the strength for……so, who knows ? – Maybe this trip saved me from a heart attack !

This will be a really good album !

My admiration for Paolo Vallerga and his creative mind and talent will never subside !

10 År utan alkohol !

I samma stund som jag tog första steget ut från Capio Maria, Stockholm den 2:a Februari 2011 så föll den slutgiltiga poletten ner……. Det var inte en tanke, utan mer som någon slags uppenbarelse som bara ”slog till” och plötsligt så visste jag: ”Det är slut nu” – ”Jag kommer aldrig mer att dricka alkohol

9 År som Nykter !

Då har det gått 1 år till och jag är ”uppe på nio”…. Och står där, fortfarande stadigt ! Så har det varit sen den 2:a februari 2011. Och Nej – Jag är inte ”duktig” eller ”stark”. Jag skryter inte heller om det ! – Det var ett BESLUT jag tog, och jag är tacksam

9 Years of sobriety !

One more year has passed …. And I´m still here – sober ! This has been the case since February 2nd, 2011. But No – I’m not ” that fantastic” or ”strong”. I’m not boasting about it either! – It was a DECISION I made, and I am grateful that I finally got the insight

My Last Live Performance with THERION

I did my last live performance with Therion at Brutal Assault Festival, Czech Republic August 7th 2019. I made the final decision a couple of months ago, so everybody in the band and the crew knew this was gonna be my last appearance on stage with them. The reason is that the long touring is

8 År som ”Spik-Nykter” ! Hur blev det efteråt ?

8 År ! Tiden går fort ! Och den går ännu fortare när man trivs och har kul, säger man. Och jag har det faktiskt kul och trivsamt – även om livet förstås går lite ”upp-å-ner” ibland, eller ganska ofta. Men så är det att vara människa och leva i verkligheten. Inget konstigt med det.
