He already totally destroyed Bethlehem's rerecording of Suizid, so now he's gonna destroy songs by other bands as well?

I think he has a nice voice, but he tries to hard with all that drug-shit and pretending to be deranged... This release looks useless, only meant to satisfy his huge ego.

My problem with Kvarforth is that his voice is awesome... but in his own field. I always feel like he sounds out of place in other bands that aren't shining or an own project. And yes, his ego and the whole pretending-I'm-fucked-up-all-the-time is quite annoying as well

I was thinking that Niklas would put Kvarforth his own solo material, but I guess that's not the case. I guess it's just a compilation of what he's done in the past with all those bands. That's surely a different way of doing things. EDIT: He does kind of have an ego though...
