Opeth Planning 'Epic' and 'Unusual' Album

01/06/2014
.
(Prog) Mikael Akerfeldt has completed six songs and begun work on another three for Opeth's eleventh album. He promises the material will be "epic" and "unusual" – and adds that the way he plans to record it has been heavily influence by Steven Wilson after their Storm Corrosion collaboration.

Akerfeldt tells Decibel: "Some of these things could be easily done with synthetic sounds or effects, but recording the Storm Corrosion LP with Steven made me realise what a massive difference it can mean to incorporate the real s***.

"I'm semi-pretentious in my songwriting and sometimes I go all in. I think it's time for all-in with strings and the full monty… hopefully it won't be a mess." more on this story
