Opeth's Mikael Akerfeldt Doubts Return To Earlier Style

(Prog) Opeth mainman Mikael Akerfeldt says he thinks its unlikely he'll ever return to the screaming vocals he used on the band's earlier material. But he reports it's something he'd explore further if new tracks called for that style of sound.

He tells asQme: "Next year I guess we'll focus on new music. When it comes to screams, I don't know. If the songs we write need the screams, they'll be on there.

"I have a feeling that I won't write those kind of songs. I've been screaming for more than 20 years, so I'm not as good as I was. I'm a pretty chilled out person so I don't really have that in me any more.

"I can do it when we're playing some of those old songs. But for me to write new music as aggressively as I wrote 10 or 15 years ago, it's not likely - but you never know." Read more and watch the full interview here.
