Tomas Skogsberg, the producer of most of the early nineties Swedish death metal classics from Entombed and Dismember at Sunlight Studio, was interviewed by the Swedish Communist Party’s Proletaren news site a couple of years ago. Skogsberg of course speaks about his collectivist ideals and why he eventually became a card-carrying Communist. He mentions that the Boss HM-2 pedal is only good for chainsaw guitar death metal and is otherwise bullshit. In addition he talks of his love of The Beatles and unpristine, properly dirty productions, and how Sunlight only bought digital audio workstation software in 1995 that he still uses. This could explain why various Swedish bands have noted over the years that Skogsberg let Sunlight Studio fall into disrepair in the mid 90s. Overall, Skogsberg says he is proud of the “rattly and raspy” records he engineered over the course of his career with his favorite production have been Entombed‘s Wolverine Blues, death ‘n’ roll sellout from 1993.

Is he homeless?

if you’ve produced albums with e-drums you’ve lost the right big up yourself as some sort of organic lo-fi production connoisseur
I honestly feel like Scott Burns and Skogsberg both just kind of lucked into the death metal thing.
The Eternal Swede strikes again
Gas the Swedes!
Sweden Anno 1990, or thereabouts was already pretty far gone.
Tomas has been a communist since before the 90s, it’s no secret. Here’s him in his Lenin gear with Darkthrone.
Woah, nice find. I didn’t even know the singer from 4 Non Blondes used to be in in Darkthrone.
Fenriz looks like he’s in a gothic rock band.
He looks like my drunk old uncle in Mississippi, only he drives a pickup truck with a shotgun rack in the back and his hang out chair is under a giant rebel flag on his property, and he’s also extremely racist and the funniest person I know, an overall badass.
