The Opiates 20th anniversary Written by Douglas Alphonse Young
"THE BEGINNING The Opiates is a strange kind of creation; its origin can be traced to a sterile, culvert-like basement of the debt collecting department in the Swedish Inland Revenue Department facilities in Gothenburg. Probably the least creative environment imaginable. There, Thomas Feiner, Kalle Thorslund, Mikael Moiner (then Andersson), and Jan Sandahl came together to write and record what was going to become Anywhen’s third full-length album. The ambience was atrocious, the acoustics appalling, and the newly acquired digital studio equipment annoyingly flawed. Not the greatest start for an album which subsequently turned out to be the band’s finest moment."
