Dan Swanö VS All

Recommended Posts

Dan Swanö played in bands such as Frameshift, Nightingale, Odyssey, Witherscape, Demiurg, Star One, Dan Swanö, Diabolical Masquerade, Edge of Sanity, Godsend, Incision, Infestdead, Karaboudjan, Masticate, Pan.Thy.Monium, Steel, Stygg Död, Total Terror, Unicorn, Darkcide, Route Nine, Obliterhate, Another Life, Overflash, Ribspreader, Brejn Dedd, Maceration, Sörskogen. I personally have never seen someone so dedicated to metal. This man is literally obsessed with making metal music and I love it. He shows massive amounts of dedication by creating many bands each of them featuring different lyrical themes and musical sounds. I would like to see someone find another like this man to compare side by side. Can you think of any because I can't? Almost forgot that he has a new band called Witherscape and just released an album this year.

Re: Dan Swanö VS All Pan.Thy.Monium's Dawn of Dreams will likely always be my favorite album that Dan performed on, but Edge of Sanity's The Spectral Sorrows, Purgatory Afterglow, and Crimson come close. Not all of his stuff is excellent, but most tends to be pretty good, so I can't complain. Sent from my HTC PH39100 using Tapatalk 2

Re: Dan Swanö VS All

I know not all of his stuff is the BEST' date=' but it tends to be still very good as in well put together and thought out. I've noticed all of his stuff is different in some way and offers a new take on different genres. I personally like how he branches out and tries something different every time.[/quote'] Definitely, most of it revolves around death metal and prog, but he tends to do something different with each project. I don't have a ton of his stuff, just Pan.Thy.Monium, Edge of Sanity, and Bloodbath, but I like a lot of the other stuff I've heard from him, so I need to check out more.

Dan Swano is definitely the guy with his fingers in the most quality pies. He also plays drums in Katatonia's 'Tonight's Decision' which earns him even more points in my book. However, several of his projects fall into the 'good not great' category, and in some cases he does seem to be quantity over quality. 

The only other person I can think of who has participated in a plethora of great releases is Hellhammer. He is on albums by Mayhem, Dimmu Borgir, Arcturus, Age of Silence, Thorns + many others. He has also been a session member in Emperor and Immortal + many others. 

Ok, Hellhammer is not composing the music, he's just banging along with it, so on that front Swano beats him quite easily, but I can't think of anyone who has participated in so many great recordings and live shows in metal during the modern era.

    • "Wizard Bloody Wizard" is like the lifting of a thick fog.  From the off there's a feel of a dense weight being lifted from the band's signature occult/stoner blend of doom.  By the time I get to track two "Necromania" things almost seem like a dark cock-rock affair which is odd.   The over-arching feel though is of a band who have gone off the boil somewhat.  Despite the aforementioned lifting of the heavy atmosphere "Wizard Bloody Wizard" seems more of ground out effort made under some duress resulting in the album being robbed in the main of any feel...

    • I am a huge Cradle of Filth fan and on the album Hammer of The Witches they have a song called Right Wing of The Garden Triptych and based on the lyrics I believe it is a reference to the painting Garden of Earthy Delights by Hieronymus Bosch. Does anyone know if this is true or not?

    • Whether you love or hate Cannibal Corpse, their penchant for churning out accessible, fun and consistent DM can't be denied. Yes when they suck they really do suck (Gallery of Suicide), but even if technically never more complicated than most Kinder egg toys there's always a familiarity to CC albums that appeals. I get those that hate that familiarity. If you prefer to become lost in a Portalesque vortex when enjoying your extreme metal then the obvious churn of CC won't be for you. However, for every complex and archaic DM record in my collection I like to have a fair amount of surety too (someone will be along in a minute to replace "surety" with "safety" no doubt) and "Red Before Black" is as familiar to me after a few listens as most of the band's previous output...
