Opeth Feel No Affinity With Metal Bands

08/29/2014
.
(Prog) Opeth are comfortable with their position in today's metal scene, but say they feel no affinity with metal bands, especially modern ones. The Swedish prog metallers released new album Pale Communion this week and frontman Mikael Akerfeldt says he's pleased with how the band have developed their sound over the years.

He tells SpazioRock: "I don't know anything else than the metal world, because that's where we are. But we're trying to push the boundaries a little bit. Mostly musically, but also sound-wise.

"We don't like to belong in a group. We wanna be on our own. But we are OK with being defined within the metal scene, because that's our origins. Our roots come from real extreme metal, and gradually we have moved away from that. But we still feel we belong to the metal scene, but we don't feel an affinity with bands in the metal scene, and definitely not the sound from the metal scene of today." More here.
