i'm also happy he's back and i hop for more in the future.
but i love cello as well, though. actually it'd be very, veeery hard for me to choose among these 2 instruments. apart from johansen's playing and the parts he played in tristania and the sins of thy beloved, maybe i'd go for cello for a half point more
actually i loved how that sounds in Ashes!
p.s. i was listening to the sins today... so many memories, after more than a decade in which those records were released! they seem to be active but i wonder why the f*ck don't the give us some news, at least a confirmation they are alive!
