"We collaborated in late 1988, all of 89 and 1990 and first half of 1991. Then after the recording of A BLAZE IN THE NORTHERN SKY in summer of 1991 that we stop playing live AND started writing songs on our own and no song would be rejected or even questioned. A 3 headed dictatorship at the time, which became a 2 headed dictatorship when Ivar left. Asking why after 19 years will only retrieve a far fetched answer as i know no other way now. Of course we like to work alone, it’s like making breakfast, one doesn’t want to collaborate on that, one makes his own breakfast. Period ! "
