Last week was kind of a rollercoaster for me, so it wasn't until today that I got in the mood for playing my new copy of #DanSwanö's amazing solo album #Moontower, which was repressed on vinyl last Summer. I'm not that picky as a "collector" but the record's jacket quality was pretty crappy (and let's not talk about that misprint omitting 'Add Reality' on the A-side label, typos on the lyrics etc). Also, I was under the impression that everything sounded as if it had been tuned slighty higher on the vinyl, weird! Other than that, it's an album I still love to this day and listen to quite frequently, there are so many great melodies and powerful growls on it. Hope someone will reprint it in the future with the presentation it deserves.
On a side note, I always found it curious when Swanö complains about his difficulty to write meaningful lyrics, as I like many of his output. Just like he would say on the last track: "I envy the writers and the poets who know the way to the places where poetry grow. There is no harvest if you never sow, so I beg, steal and borrow wherever I go. If words were like music this would be a book, but this is not even worth the time it took. Not even a novel, just a self-pity tale written by someone that always will fail". @dan_swano_official #danswano #edgeofsanity #nightingale #panthymonium #karaboudjan #bloodbath #unicorn #witherscape #vinyl #lp #12inch #progressivemetal #progressiverock #prog #metal #deathmetal #progressivedeathmetal #melodicdeathmetal #melodeath #progrock #sweden
