Fredrik’s comment


I have really not been a part of the Lake of Tears story since we played 70000 Tons of Metal in 2015 but I had a great time playing with the rest of the guys and we made an album together that I’m proud of.

We want to try to focus on getting new material done because we think this is the most important thing right now.
