Opeth's Mikael Akerfeldt Addresses Solo Rumors

(Prog) Opeth mainman Mikael Akerfeldt says he has no plans to record a solo album - despite having been offered a record deal. He says stories about a one-man project began circulating because he discussed his desire to learn more about studio production by experimenting on himself.

Akerfeldt tells Rocksverige: "I got an offer from a record label to do a solo record not long ago. Those rumours come from me saying that I would like to do a thing like that to learn more about the technical aspect of recording.

"I was going to start in an easy way with just an acoustic guitar and vocals - a singer/songwriter record." But he continues: "It hasn't materialised. It was never decided. It was just something I said." Read more here.
