Sauna Open Air Metal Festival 2007 entertained approximately 22,000 metal warriors within 3 hot and sunny days. Almost 10,000 people appeared on Saturday, 8th of June, which was undoubtedly the biggest day of the festival thanks to both Dimmu Borgir´s and Type O Negative´s attendance. The Sauna Open Air Metal Festival opened its gates for metalheads for the 4th time in the whole history of this well-organized festival.

I had the opportunity to catch up with vocalist Mikael Stanne and together we discussed, amongst other things, the creative process behind the new album as well as what it’s like to be a musician in Dark Tranquillity.

Here is an interview with Niklas Sundin, guitarist for Gothenburg Sweden-based Dark Tranquillity. DT have recently released their new album CHARACTER and I had the opportunity to interview Niklas about DT (who celebrates 16 years in the business) and about the new album. At the moment, CHARACTER is at the third place on the list of most selling albums in Sweden right now…it also lies at the top position on the hard rock chart of most sold metal albums in Sweden.
