I didnít do any big bands before HAMMERFALL. We tried hard throughout the nineties in Gothenburg where I come from playing heavy metal but no one really cared for the music. That was the big problem. People were laughing at us when we performed on stage with pyro and we had armor. We went to an exhibition, we got real armor, and this was in a band called Highlander and later became Lost Horizon. I was in Highlander for five years and then I joined HAMMERFALL. But in between there I was searching for other bands and musicians to play with but no one wanted to play heavy metal.
