I've decided to take only the 'big' projects Swanö has done, and not the million small EP-bands he's been in over the years, or the one off albums (Katatonia's Tonight Decision, Star One's Space Metal, etc, though I've put in Dan Swanö's self-titled)

It's almost impossible to choose, but through deducting that Diabolical Masquerade is more of a Blakkheim project, Godsend and Infestdead being only good, Nightingale, Pan.thy.monium and Ribspreader being only superbly great, left me with Edge of Sanity or Bloodbath...and as Moontower was like an extention of Edge of Sanity...I went with them. Any of them could have won though, they're all great.

Dan Swano is a musical genius and I haven't heard anything of his that I haven't liked, but I easily voted for Bloodbath. Those dudes just know how to make great death metal. It's just a shame that Dan isn't with them anymore.

Pan.Thy.Monium !! , although it's more because of his brother's (Dag) guitar riffs and saxophone crazyness. Then comes Edge of Sanity and Nightingale. Nothing to say about those two as they are just awesome in everyway... Moontower is a jewel of its own kind too, oh man. Check my avatar

Edge of Sanity, Nightingale and of course, his solo album Moontower, Dan Swanö is a genius.

pan.thy.monium takes a while to really get into, as he's singing in a completely made up language, with odd time signatures (odder than normal :p)

I was thinking about making this poll the other day, but it looks like you beat me to it. Anyway, Dan Swano is a musical genius. He is such a diverse musician and very talented also. I've listened to many of his projects and absolutely loved them. Edge Of Sanity are the obvious win for most people, but I had to vote for Nightingale. The rest are great bands, particularly Pan.Thy.Monium, Edge Of Sanity and Diabolical Masquerade. Although, Nightingale brings something very unique and original to the music industry. It's not exactly Metal, more like melodic/progressive rock, which really appealed to me the first time I heard it. The use of keyboards in Nightingale also amazed me when I heard it. Swano's vocal performance also is superb. And not only in Nightingale, but in all his projects.

Anyway, as I said, my vote goes for Nightingale. They're something new and eccentric which I really liked.

Actually from what I've read Robert Karlson was just growling random gibberish, sometimes you can hear english but the rest is just to make another "instrument" so to speak.

Exactly Nightingale has a very smooth prog feeling that is really enjoyable !

I love Diabolical Masquerade, it's the best band i've heard. Nightingale is very nice too. I don't like Pan.thy.monium. So the result is: I've voted for Diabolical Masquerade.:banger2:

I voted for Bloodbath. Probably in my top 20 favorite DM bands of all time and they are quite brutal. All of the releases with Dan Swano are fuckin' great. He is so talented with every instrument that he plays.

Second for me would be Edge Of Sanity.

I've been thinking about it, and Ribspreader is really good...but I still think Bloodbath might be better. I dunno, the newest Bloodbath album was only decent to me, while Ribspreader is a little more brutal.

I haven't heard Infestdead though.

Dan Swano is a genius everything he's done has been brilliant but my vote went to Bloodbath it's a shame that they kicked him out but the Bloodbath albums are both amazing death metal records. My next choice would have to be Edge of Sanity they're one of the best melodeath bands out there Crimson II and Purgatory Afterglow are my favorite records by them. Another one I'd like to mention is Star One because that album is nothing short of amazing. Dan Swano is the man.

Pan.Thy.Monium's Dawn of Dreams and Dream II are probably the most original albums ever to be recorded in scandinavia, I can't vote against them.

Right, I noticed that almost right after I posted that. Who knows, maybe they will get reasonably big.

with that line-up, it's quite possible that they will kick some serious ass

Nightingale is my favourite; Moontower is great too. Dan Swano had another project - Unicorn, it was neo-prog in the manner of 80 Marillion or IQ.

Happy to see that my vote made Edge of Sanity even with Bloodbath!!! :c D
I believe that Edge of Sanity's longest and more consistent work really calls for a victory.
