I been quite busy lately, recording 11 songs for Francis Soto Band so far. I have also completed the recordings for four songs for my own solo project. We have also been working hard for the first release of an album with MindSplit (tomorrow we will record some keyboards). Check my myspace profile to hear the latest songs I've done for the next album. Also check Francis Soto Bands profile on myspace to check some songs. And MindSplits myspace profile for some new songs.

And the 8th October I was featured in two TV programs.

Here's the bloggings which I did on my myspace profile:

The first program I was featured in:

Here's one link to a program they did about me on the Swedish television. The part with me starts at about 10 minutes 12 seconds in the movie.

Watch the program here.

Thanks for watching though you might not will understand what I say ;)
The second:

As I told you before Conny Payne and I was featured in another show today which is called "Eftersnack" Aftertalk (translated as one word). In this show Conny Payne and I play two short songs. One which is about 45 seconds, Hårgalåten, a traditional song from Sweden and my district. We did it a little different though... And we also played about 3 minutes of my song Green Water.

The first song is just after the first notice of the program and then they interviewed me later in the show and at the end we played Green Water. They also showed some old stuff from my first release "Pictures of a dream". I got long hair......... much hair hahaha Looked like an poodle ;)

See the show here.

Thanks again for watching! Learn Swedish then you will understand what we say ;)

30th May 2008
I have just finished the recordings on a new song for Francis Soto Band. The title of the song is Control & Power. It's a pretty heavy song with strong melodies and heavy riffs.

You'll find the song on Francis Soto Bands profile:

Thank you for your interest and may the force be with you!

10th April 2008
For about two weeks ago I joined the band Francis Soto Band. Francis contacted me and asked if I was interested of arrange and record guitars on two songs, "Dedicated" and "Lifetime". I was happy that he asked and I thought it should be fun to give it a try because Francis is a great singer and they had great song idéas. When Francis heard my work on the songs he asked me to be the guitarist of the band and here we are, thanks Francis! I have arranged & recorded another song since then, that songs title is "Wasting my time". Please visit Francis Soto Bands profile and listen to his songs.

Dear friends, "reborn Identity" is a new song that I've added today to my musicplayer on The song was born for about ten years ago but it has been reconstructed into a reborn Identity. I think you may hear some of my influences in it and I also hope that you will like and enjoy it as much as I have through the progress working with it. The song will be on my next album with the difference that there will be real drums recorded to it which I hope and think will make it even better.

I play all the guitars and basses on the song and I have also done the keyboard arrangement and the choirs are also my own throat....ahhh! So it's a song by me with me...

Thank you for the support! /Mathias

Best regards and let us reborn into a new identity for about seven minutes!

I have uploaded a song on my profile on Myspace which Jon Skäre has written, the song is called "Inferno". I play all the guitars on it and Jon Skäre play everything else. He's a virtuoso on the drums and he is also a great song writer in my opinion. He got some weird ideas and I like it!

Thanks Jon for letting me play on it! It had some great hours in my studio when I was recording it!

The song sounds like a horror theme. The song maybe demands a few listening s before you like it because it's so freaky :) Hey! Check it out NOW!!!!

I'm currently writing some new material for the next album which I hope will be released this summer. I'm working with Conny Payne on bass, (former bassplayer of "Madison" and "Alien"). The most of the material is instrumental and on this album I'm going to include a couple of songs with vocals, though I haven't decided who will be the vocalist. We are in the middle of the pre-production and later I will pick the musicians I need for the recording of the album. Cause this time I wanna use live musicians through the whole album.

I will update this page frequently. Add a bookmark to be sure to get back to this page again.
