Singled Out: Fullforce's Mythomaniac (Hammerfall / Cloudscape / Yngwie)
Strangely enough I choose to write a song that I actually did NOT write myself, but that was a great result of us working together. The song is the opening track on our new album "One". The basic demo of Mythomaniac came from Anders Johansson. As far as I remember he had programmed a simple drumbeat and recorded guitars on top of this himself. He sent it to me and Mike who both heard the song's potential. Mike immediately started working on the arrangement of the song and added a new chorus that he came up with. The song grew and I got the responsibility to finish the arrangement by coming pup with the guitar-parts. Working on this song was very easy in spite of it's technically challenging nature, because it was such a great and well written track. I tried to come up with guitar work that was 200% nuclear energy, because that's what the song takes. I was inspired by the fact the it felt a little like I was working on a track that could have belonged to one of Anders and his brother Jens's "Johansson" albums; Sonic Winter. If You don't own it - buy it today and listen to two of the greatest instrumental songs ever recorded. When the band recorded the sharp version of Mythomaniac I was just blown away by it's untamed and raw energy. It was great to be a part of this.
