Re: Svealand // WV 86 // Opeth // Will O The Wisp //

Today is a day of sorrows and mourning. xcry1 xcry1 xcry1

The wonderful, wonderful Rikard Wolff has passed away from a chronic obstructive lung disease, at only 59 years old.



He was incredibly loved and beloved here in Sweden. Every Swede of my generation and younger grew up with him as the Swedish voice of Scar in Disney's The Lion King. He's someone I loved ever since I first saw the Änglagård movies in the early 90s. I loved his acting just as much as his singing. He was truly a unique soul and will be forever missed.

Vila i frid du älskade människa. xheart xheart xheart

Re: Svealand // WV 86 // Opeth // Will O The Wisp //

This is so very sad. I'm sitting here misty eyed listening to "En förlorad sommar". Possibly the most special song ever heard on the Melodifestivalen stage. He had such a beautiful voice that told a story to you. I can't understand Swedish but I was always touched by the songs of his you'd show me. Rest in peace Rikard.

Re: Svealand // WV 90 // ?? // ?? // Hint inside

when was Sweden so mighty and powerful?

Hang on...do you send something from Carolux Rex album?
That's a screen shot from a computer game. Even though we were more powerful in the past and had way more land than we do now, it wasn't as much as in the screen shot. You can change history in that game.

As for the other thing... only time will tell. ;)

Re: Svealand // WV 90 // Sabaton // Lejonet Från Norden //

Here is the WV 90 entry! The song is about King Gustav II Adolf of Sweden, also known by his Latinized name Gustavus Adolphus, who was the king of Sweden during the Thirty Years' War. He is often regarded as one of the greatest military commanders of all time, with innovative use of combined arms. During his reign, Sweden became one of the great powers of Europe and a model of early modern era government. Some have called him the "father of modern warfare", or the first great modern general. He died at the battle of Lützen in 1632.



He was also known as Gustavus Adolphus the Great, The Golden King and The Lion from the North, the ladder of which is the title of this song.
