We never decide to do anything different. In fact, we don't feel like we're changing anything. We approach every album in a similar way. Of course, every album is usually different, but we tend to realise that only when the record is done. There have also been line-up changes over the years which have obviously affected our sound, but ultimately it feels like I've been doing the same thing and going through the same process for thirteen years, and I find it hard to think that it could be any other way. What Tiamat does feels very natural to me.
At the same time that I'm writing songs, I think that I am also writing a novel. I see us as very much an album-band, not just a band that put a collection of songs together. So, we're really working hard to get a good flow on every album and that's where a lot of the sounds and cross-fades come from -- keeping the record flowing and connecting certain pieces on the album.
