New questions
« on: 11 March 2011, 14:52:45 »

Good (time of the day) to the esteemed band members!
I already had a question down the line but here are some more. :)

1. This one I guess is for Anders. I think that certain negativity is inevitable whenever a well established band such as yours goes through lineup changes (Black Sabbath Osbourne vs. Dio debate anyone?), but in your case it seemed overwhelming - just reading comments to youtube videos of Wacken '09 was painful. It showed me a new low in terms of cluelessness and outright hate some of the so called fans apparently display - not something I'd like to be poured on my head. The question is, does that bother you and how you're getting over people unfairly and massively slagging your work?

2. What is Einar doing these days? Why is he so adamantly refusing to tour with the band (since 2005 I believe)? What are the chances of seeing him play with you again, and is his contribution going to be greater at least in the songwriting department? Do you think we're going to hear a couple of solos from him again? (Sorry - his playing on Beyond the Veil was one of the album's high points and I think it could be nice to bring back a piano solo or two on the future releases)

3. Do you have any hobbies outside music? Do you have time to pursue them?

4. The band has retained 2/3 of its songwriting core (Anders / Einar) but musically has gone a long way since the first record (just like any decent band should). The question is, is there a conscious direction you're pursuing or do the songs themselves shape this direction? Where do you see yourself at, musically, in a few years?

Thanks in advance; hope I wasn't too prolix. :)
