The singer for Candlemass' lesser known "traditional" doom period. Uses a much smaller and more "comfortable" tessitura compared to the band's other vocalists past and present, keeping in line with the darker and heavier style of the albums Dactylis Glomerata and From the 13th Sun. He seems to mainly focus on the mid fourth octave, allowing for some grittier belts that the band usually isn't known for, and makes much more use of his lower range than any other singer in the band's recording history (with the exception of possibly Mats Levén). While certainly not the greatest or most exciting singer who has been a part of Candlemass, he definitely fits their peculiar and spacey late 90s period.
