Episode #100 Dan Swanö (Bloodbath, Edge of Sanity)
Welcome to this weeks episode of Heavy Metal History, my illustrious and legendary guest this week almost needs no introduction, but none the less here it is!
I got to speak at length with Dan Swanö, prolific sound engineer and owner of Unisound studios. Dan has worked with, recorded and played with some of the biggest bands that have come out of Sweden such as Dissection, Opeth, Dawn, Dark Funeral, Omnium Gatherum and Marduk, just to name a few. He’s played in bands such as Katatonia, Bloodbath, Edge of Sanity and Nightingale.
Dan was gracious enough with his time to talk to me all about fostering the Swedish metal scene, how he got his start in the recording business and where his passion came from for it. We discuss Edge of Sanity’s “Purgatory Afterglow“ celebrating a 25 year anniversary as well as Bloodbath’s “Nightmares Made Flesh“ Celebrating a 15 year anniversary.
Dan’s influence on the metal scene as a whole is legendary in it’s own right and should not be over looked so enjoy this episode and all that Dan had to tell me about his early days!
