This is my interview with none other than the heavy metal legend Fredrik Nordstrom.
Fredrik was instrumental in creating the Gothenburg sound in the early 90’s going right through to 2000’s and beyond.
He’s worked with artists such as Opeth, Dimmu Borgir, Arch Enemy, At the Gates, Devin Townsend, Soilwork, Dark Tranquillity, In Flames, The Haunted, and in more recent times, bands like Bring me the Horizon, Architects and many, many more. We walked through his career from where he became interested in music and production, through how he developed his own sound and started the now legendary studio Fredman.
Along with a his gracious giving up of many gold nuggets of information regarding recording philosophy and technique, he shared a few stories about the bands he has worked with and we talked a bit about what may lie ahead for studios, engineers, producers and indeed bands.
