It turned into an addiction. Even thought the last album was a critical failure, I had to make another. I couldn't leave the band stuck like that, right?
[Actually, I did leave them stuck for just over 4 years. Then I came across the original post on Facebook and thought I'd try again]
It's clear that Hannes and Rasmus had a parting of ways after Metaphorical Code-Switching was released. With Sigrid still off at school there was no one to rein Hannes in, and the album took on a rather dark and cynical aspect.
