Are you sure?  I could have sworn King said it was Andy.  I will go back and listen to those tapes one of these days when I can.  Not that it is that important.  Plus I have to find them again.

From the booklet of the double CD of Abigail with bonus DVD:

MICHAEL DENNER: Ha, ha. Yeah, I remember when we did Fatal Portrait, this instrumental piece bothered me like hell. I gave the guitar to King and said "Play the goddamned thing," and he did.

We're getting very OT, by the way!

Maybe he got the names mixed up when asked on WRTN or I remember it wrong, but yeah we are off topic and it is not important anyway.  Plus I am way too busy to find those tapes right now anyway

I haven't been there, but as I said in another thread, watching the videos you can see that he really knows what he's about and how clever he is!
And he seems to be a nice guy too!
But personally I will always miss Hall! I can do nothing!

Its never easy to have a member change but clearly he wasn't happy where he was at. Its just unfortunate that he decided to take it to an ugly place instead of just moving on avoiding unneeded drama.  His replacement fits in just fine from what I've seen and heard.  :king:

After seeing the show, I think this guy brings a bit more energy then Hal did, hard to explain, but it just works.

I never saw the band with Hal, but Pontus just looks so damn happy. He was so clearly enjoying himself in Atlanta and that energy was infectious. He and Matt were also tight as a drum ( pun fully intended ) and he played super tight in the pocket all night long. 
Ahh... I have longed to be at one with this

Not to take anything away from Hal despite all the problems but yes Pontus is an extremely energetic and heavy bass player.  His groove techniques are great and personally i would love to hear him in a new recording !

It seems like we all would love to hear Pontus on a new album! He's a great, great and charismatic bassist in my opinion. He fits perfectly into the band. :)
