-Some ignorant dude in Michel’s party after the Therion concert said that Swedish Death Metal was a direct copy of American new Metal brought to Sweden by Peter Tägtgren.
-But listen! Hey! To which I said, ok, to which I said: “no, dude…that’s a fallacy, Swedish Gothenburg’s Death metal was a direct result of the experimentation in both, style and technique in the natural development of the black metal influence of the Norwegian and early Swedish power Metal.”
They all nodded and stood self-righteously in silence.
