Are there any similarities between your skiing style and your stage presence?
Aggression. My music is aggressive and my skiing is aggressive. But I scream more when I sing than when I ski. If I listen to music while skiing it’s usually stuff like Killswitch Engage, Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach, or Hatebreed. I don’t listen to our band. I’m kind of fed up with our first album after recording and rehearsing for two years.
Where do you draw inspiration for your lyrics?
My fucked-up childhood. Just kidding. It’s drawn from everyday life, watching TV, reading the newspaper. Everything really.
Reading the newspaper? Your music seems more hardcore than that…
Well, the media in Sweden is very controlling. Everything the media says, people believe. What the media tells people to do, they do. It’s pretty fucked up.
What do you like better: face shots or face-melting guitar solos?
[Without hesitation] Definitely face shots.
