Yes. Yes it does. My most favourite bands are all from Sweden: Opeth, Pain of Salvation, Mind's eye, Karmakanic, Meshuggah, Evergrey, Katatonia, Roxette (I confess, I dig Roxette).
I know there are few Swedes on the forum, so I'd like to ask you...
...could you please give us back the Codex gigas? I'm pretty sure it's unholy powers are the reason why you're so awesome. We (and by "we" I mean "I") want to be awesome too!
