Sweden's In Flames have posted this message on their official website:
We would like to give our thoughts and deepest sympathies to all people involved in the horrible tragedy "tsunami". We pray that all the people still missing will be found safe and unharmed. And for the people that lost someone, no words can describe what you must be going through right now, our thoughts are with you.
When something like this happens, it really makes you think about your loved ones and how we should not take any people for granted, but always appreciate our friends,families and co-workers. Sadly it is mostly in times like these when that comes to our minds.
Our deepest condolances:
Peter, Jesper, Anders, Björn & Daniel
