Dan is no longer in Bloodbath as his "services are no longer needed" because he cannot tour with the group. In the two man band 'Sörskogen', he was playing drums, keyboard and bass, while Åkerfeldt took care of vocals and guitar. Since the project was "just for fun", they never got serious about working on a release and officially only wrote one song, 'Mordet i Grottan', which was published on the internet with Åkerfeldts permission. Swanö also has contributed his vocal talents to Arjen Lucassen's Star One project. The two musicians are good friends, with Lucassen contributing guitar parts to Swanö's Nightingale project. He can also be heard on the albums Theli and A'arab Zaraq - Lucid Dreaming by the symphonic metal band, Therion.
He was also producer and contributing writer of the band Diabolical Masquerade, the now defunct solo avant-garde black metal band of Anders Nyström aka Blakkheim (Katatonia, Bloodbath, ex-Bewitched). He also contributed some guitar solos, backing vocals on various Diabolical Masquerade albums, and played the drums on the album Nightwork. He also produced and played the keyboards on the Memories from Nothing album by Swedish progressive rockers Another Life, released on Vic Records. Besides all these bands, Swanö has also released a solo progressive death metal album entitled Moontower, on which he showcases his multi-instrumental talent, playing all instruments (guitar, bass, drums, keyboard) and providing all the vocal work. Swanö has a diverse vocal register, encompassing many styles, which include death grunts, clean, melodic singing with a warm rich tone, deep, dark, gothic vocals, and thrash shouting.
