While fans eagerly wait for their new album, Opeth are working on a book, the Official Illustrated History of Opeth. To celebrate their 25th anniversary, the Swedish band teamed up with book publisher Rocket 88 to work on the official Opeth book. In this book, the band will tell you their full story for the first time - the good, the bad, the ugly - in their own words, with a little help from former members, label bosses, management, producers, and anyone else that's been there for the key moments in the band's illustrious career.

Opeth's "long and winding story will be illustrated throughout with rare and unseen images of life on the road, working in the studio, and other unique glimpses into the world of Opeth. Rocket 88 Books are inviting fans to get in touch if they have any items of visual interest: photos/posters/ticket stubs/fliers/anything! Don't send images yet, just let Rocket 88 know what you have and they will review all that's sent in with consideration for inclusion in what will be a truly exceptional book about one of Metal's most important bands. Your stuff could be in the book! Please e-mail Rocket 88 at: info@opethbook.com."

No thanks, I'd like to hear some music though. Hopefully Opeth wont pull off Metallica 2.0, doing all kinds of awkward moves before actually releasing anything new and worthy.

Hmm, a little self indulgent methinks.. Don't get me wrong, I love Opeth too, but a book?

Seems a bit self indulgent to me to! Some sort of monster CD/LP boxset with lots of cool new stuff and old rarities would've been far cooler.
