Mikael Akerfeldt - Begins To Work On New Opeth Album And Side-Project


Mikael Akerfeldt has posted a message on their website telling that he has started the writing for what is supposed to be the 9th Opeth record and is also working on a as of yet unnamed side project. The members of the band wish to extend a big "thank you" to all their fans worldwide who came and saw them on the "Ghost Reveries" world tour 2005/2006. They also want to thank the promoters and agents who made this tour possible. They hope to see you again soon!

Blabbermouth.net reported earlier that Opeth will be Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson's guests on this Saturday, January 6 during Bruce's weekly BBC 6 Music radio show, aptly named "Rock Show". Listen to the program live via the Internet between 9:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. (midnight) U.K. time (between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. EST) at BBC.co.uk.

Opeth filmed its November 9 show at the Roundhouse in London for a possible DVD."

Great! the ninth album! I think Opeth are one of the best metal band in the world, I've seen them play two time in 2006: simply awesome!

Maybe he's beginning work on some more Sörskogen material. That'd be awesome if he is.

I actually added this on the 1st (Australian time) but it took them ages to post it, i guess because they edited it quite heavily. They probably would have been better of adding yours!

I just noticed that they mis-spelt 'Åkerfeldt'. That wasn't me!!

... well, "feldt" sure means "field" but as far as I know you don't usually englify names. Not the first time the staff messes things up xP

Well, they're pronounced differently are they not? Feldt = "felt" and Field = "Feeld".

Great news, hard to believe Opeth manges to put out an album every 2 years, makes thousands of tours and still never dissapoint. I'm sure this will turn out to be another masterpiece.

Well actually, yes it could have. I'm afraid the album won't be done until at least the later months of this year.
