Favourite Non-The Crown song?
Paradise Lost - Eternal is the best cover we've done.

Favourite The Crown album artwork?
I think all our artwork has been good I mean Hell Is Here, Possessed 13, Deathrace King, The Burning etc., they are all classic.
But I think I like Doomsday King the best right now.

I remember falling off a bridge in the forest and being completely drowned in snow and my grandfather (R.I.P.)
jumped after and pulled me up again.

First local act: Valcyrie in Trollhättan -90.
First international band: Morbid Angel Gothenburg -91.

What do you prefer, live or studio?
I used to prefer playing live but now I prefer studio.
Anyway if I had to chose to never play live again or never to record again I would definitely prefer doing records instead of playing live. But when a show is good it's really great.

I have 2 cats but I think I would prefer black panthers, tigers or lions.
