Opeth Classic Gets Unusual Makeover


(Prog) A cello cover of Opeth's song Harvest has been released. The 2001 track, lifted from Opeth's album Blackwater Park, was adapted by composer Raphael Weinroth-Browne for a nine-piece ensemble.

Meanwhile, Opeth mastermind Mikael Akerfeldt says being "fearless" and refusing to write music with their fanbase in mind is the key to the band's success.

He tells Full Metal Jackie (via Loudwire): "I am quite fearless - I am now anyway. I guess there was a time in our career where I was a bit more wary about what people might think.

"Perhaps part of me wanted us to build a fanbase or something, or I was hoping that we'd become more popular and I was hoping that everybody was going to like whatever we were doing. I don't really care so much anymore, and I think that's good for me.

"It would be very difficult for me to write music if I was adjusting my creativity to fit the taste of the listener. I don't believe in public opinion when it comes to this band or what we should do." Read more and check out the cover here.
