Opeth mastermind Mikael Åkerfeldt has posted the following blog on his MySpace yesterday (October 31):

"On October 28 at 9:20 AM my wife gave birth to our second daughter, Mirjam Ebba Maria Åkerfeldt. She is so beautiful, just looking at her brings me to tears! Who'd known that I, a bum from the Stockholm suburbs would be the father of 2 beautiful daughters? Yes guys! I am happy!

On top of that the album is now written and the demos sound fantastic! We will start recording it tomorrow actually! I don't wanna say too much but....gee, it is so fucking good!! If I may say so myself....Expected "delivery date" on this one is sometime in April/May 08.

On top of that (2)...my friends at PRS guitars and Laney decided to give me some early Christmas gifts. I had a stunning PRS Hollowbody II delivered and it's just awesome! Real ear and eye candy! And from Laney I got the new Lionheart mini stack which sounds beyond fantastic! That rig will be used quite a lot in the studio I'm sure!

Yes, you can probably say the last few days have been pretty fucking decent!"

Great news indeed, just can't wait now to hear new Opeth stuff...
I hope it will be good without Peter anyway, he was great and fundamental IMO...

Neat, looking forward to this album.
Kap'N Korrupt - 06.11.2007 at 20:22  
Free instruments and rigs eh...yeah, I'd be pretty happy about that too...oh yeah, and his brand new baby girl of course
Well...if he says that the new album is going to be awesome then it will be right...he wouldn't lie...I would assume that there will be enough keyboards for everyone too
Frost/bitten - 29.12.2007 at 23:44  
This should be an interesting album. I hope his new baby girl will inspire him to write some more amazing music for the new album.

Congratulations Mikael!

I know you wrote that emos listen to them but that can also be a way of saying that something is emo. That's why I was wondering?
