Do you hate internet users? Sometimes it sounds like you do.

-Ben, myspace
Anders Fridén: “What have I said? What have I done now? I don’t know what I’m supposed to have done but… So, no.”
Björn Gelotte: “I think all bands have some trouble with this. If you go on to a site like Blabbermouth you can see it happens to any band and everyone will be like, ‘Fuck this! Fuck that! Fuck the other!” I don’t know why they do it but it’s so easy to be that aggressive when you’re hiding behind a computer and you don’t have to show your face or reveal your name.”
Anders: “If a 13-year-old wants to slag us off I don’t really care. It’s good you know. I’d sooner have someone talking shit about us than not talking about us at all. I think it’s good. We look at some of these boards and we have a really good laugh about it. There are people who think they know us and think they know how we should live out lives.”
Björn: “We’ve really benefited from the internet. We’ve not done MySpace yet, but we will. We were one of the first ever bands to have a web page. Our address was about six foot long. We put it on our T-shirts but we made a mistake so people couldn’t find it. But it’s a great way of communicating with fans.”
