“He joined Dark Tranquillity in ’93, right after the recording of our first album ‘Skydancer.’ He replaced me as a guitarist so that I could focus on singing, and with that, he raised the bar and set the course for what we could do and wanted to be.

“His influence and passion had an absolutely massive impact. The first song that we wrote together was something we ended up calling ‘Punish my Heaven,’ and with that, we knew that we were on a path that we up until then had only dreamed of,” he added.

“Fredrik was mercilessly funny, sharp, and highly intelligent and would light up a conversation with his amazingly positive and quick-witted commentary. But also, as easily, he would tear an uninformed argument or opinion apart with well articulated and thoroughly researched logic.

“His sense of humor and adventure would more often than not lead to epic excursions in stupidity and madness that I will forever miss,” Mikael Stanne wrote.
