Opeth detail “epic” new album

Opeth frontman Mikael Akerfeldt has described the band’s upcoming album in a recent interview.

The singer detailed the new record in an interview with Decibel, saying that it will be "epic" and "unusual", and draw influence from his fellow collaborator and friend, Steven Wilson.

"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 sh-t".

"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," Akerfeldt continued.

Now he wants to record the album in the same studio where Queen recorded ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, and produce the album himself.

    With Opeth you just have to dig the ride. Anyone who expects a certain type of record from the band is probably going to be disappointed. And I think that’s a good thing.
