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."

For anyone interested in the BBC show, the audio is kept online for a week until the next show airs.

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!

This is just too good. Could this year have started off better?
Warman - 04.01.2007 at 10:09  
Haha, this is the second time somebody stole news from me, I added this news yesterday
Elijah - 04.01.2007 at 10:22  
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!!
Xtreme Jax - 04.01.2007 at 13:02  
This is great news!! Hopefully this side-project hes talking about is the one with Steve Wilson and Mike Portnoy, which im strongly awaiting on some news about this.
Great to hear that theres another Opeth album in the early works
NoRb3 - 04.01.2007 at 13:10

... 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
Dimmie - 04.01.2007 at 14:15  
Well, they're pronounced differently are they not? Feldt = "felt" and Field = "Feeld".
Hyvaarin - 04.01.2007 at 16:03  
I wonder how the new Opeth will be stylistically. Hope more old school .
+GLOBOSITOR+ - 04.01.2007 at 17:28

OPETH is the best metal band, THE BEST!!
WarriorOfMetal - 04.01.2007 at 20:00

Passenger - 05.01.2007 at 20:04  
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.
