I understand that this band went through a severe case of "Metallica Syndrome" (I'm told that it was caused by the record studio) which is when a band has great success and then some one thinks, "hey! people love this stuff! lets completely change it!"
I think all the focus that people put on Karin Axelsson is unnecessary. Yes, she's female. Yes, she plays in a metal band.. Yes, she's beautiful. But really, can't we appreciate a band for their music and not a pretty female member?? Jesus Christ.... "
