For me, I’m way more at home in heavy metal than I am in classical music.

There is a project that I did back in 2008 with a Norwegian guitar player, Jorn Viggo Lofstad, who plays in Pagan’s Mind. We wrote a rock album, and we never released it.

I do know I will enjoy family life. What I’ve seen from moms, or heard stories from people who became a parent, it’s such a consuming thing; it’s such a wonderful thing. I consider it an extreme luxury to have that time and to not have to do anything else, and just be with my kid.

Floor Jansen
Unfortunately, life unfolds as it does, and you can’t do everything at the same time, and you can’t do some things if you can’t spend the time.
