Opeth - Part Ways With Keyboardist Per Wiberg

Keyboardist Per Wiberg has been relieved of his duties in Opeth as part of a mutual decision with the band. Keyboard duties on upcoming tours will be handled by a musician who is already rehearsing with the band. Said musician's identity will be released at a later date.

Vocalist/guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt released the following statement about the matter: "Well, it's been somewhat of a revolving door of members during the last couple of years, and now, Per is no longer a member. Mendez, Axe and Fredrik and I came to the decision that we should find a replacement for Per right after the recordings of the new album, and this came as no surprise to Per. He had, in turn, been thinking about leaving, so you could say it was a mutual decision. There's no bad blood, just a relationship that came to an end, and that's that. We wish Per the best, and he did a splendid job recording keyboards for the last record, which stands as his final recording with Opeth."

Soen - New Band Of Ex-Amon Amarth, Ex-Opeth Drummer

Martin Lopez, ex-drummer of Amon Amarth and Opeth, was so kind to inform us he's been working on a new project, entitled Soen. Lopez will be handling the drums duties, and he has formed the band together with bassist Steve DiGiorgio (ex-Death, ex-Testament, ex-Iced Earth, and a shitload of other bands), Kim Platbarzdis on guitar and vocalist Joel Ekelöf.

Lopez described the music as "melodic, heavy, intricated, and very different than everything else." He added: "We are currently writing material, and as soon as we have more news you'll be informed." Which means you'll be informed too. So keep checking the news section regularly for updates.

Opeth - Members Involved In Suicide Bus Crash

Earlier this week, Opeth's tour bus crashed into another car that made an unexpected U-turn in the middle of the highway as the band (minus Åkerfeldt, Axenrot, Äkesson who had flown home to Sweden) and their crew were on the way to Brussels/Belgium. Nobody in the band or crew got hurt, but apparently the driver of the other car got critically injured (and passed away later). Opeth will go ahead and play the Brussels date on the 17th as well as the remaining shows of the Progressive nation tour.

Guitarist/vocalist Mikael Åkerfeldt has issued the following: "Myself, Axe, Fredrik and our soundman, Pontus Norgren decided to fly home to our families for a few days as the option would have been three days off in Brussels. Now I hear that our bus apparently crashed into this other car making a unexpected U-turn in the middle of the highway. Mendez and Per were on the bus together with the rest of our crew but nobody got hurt. They are however shocked and very shaken of course. The driver in the other car was critically injured. I've not heard back from anyone yet regarding his progress but apparently it's not looking very good. Hoping for the best however.
