Opeth: Prog metal legends

Opeth mainman Mikael Åkerfeldt has offered a tantalising update on the Swedish prog metallers’ new album, telling US mag Decibel that it’s sounding “epic” and “unusual”.

“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 shit,” he adds of the band’s approach to recording the opus, the follow-up to 2011′s masterful Heritage.

“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.”
