NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

God dammit!!! Peter jews up everything! Look at Hypocrisy after Matte Modin left.

I love(ed) bloodbath too...

Personally, i dont think Damnation is as good as some of their other work. When i think of a light opeth album, i think about 11 tracks like "To Bid you Farewell." That would rule.

Yeah, while I love damnation for the way it is its self and how its totally different, I would also love to see Opeth go ahead and make a whole album of "to bid you farewells " and call it softer then normal.
I wanna see them go back melodic hard.

Pull_the_plug:
I dunno about the Bloodbath thing. All I know of is their two albums, their first, and Ressurrection through Carnage, both of which included Mike as lead singer. RTC came out 2003 I think, but if they got Peter now and don't have Mikael, I dont think its cause Mikael didn't do a good enough job, hahaha. He probably was really busy taking a well deserve vacation after his damnation tour and now is getting ready to go back into the studio.
Besides, wasn't bloodbath just a collaboration side-project between Swano/Akerfeldt? why would they continue without Mikael?

i think it revolves more around swano than it ever did mike, dan said he couldnt afford mike anymore because the label knows hes valuable or some shiat

I wouldn't put it past him, Opeth is vastly known among all types of music for their diversity, so label issues will come up. Besides, my mom left a magazine laying around with an interview with Josh Grobin ( which ain't bad ) and inside was music info ranging from Audioslave to Led Zepplin, but no metal, well, barely any, but on the back page was an ad for Lamentations, which looked quite cool by the way. So Opeth gets around alot, I think they're the most successful you can get without selling your soul to Carson Daly.
Lamentations sounds awesome, 2+ hours of their hard and acoustic tracks, the makings of deliverance and damnation and more, i have to get this the next time I buy something. I can't buy anymore Opeth cd's cause I have them all, but I spread out my purchases to make them more enjoyable, i bought them in the order of: Blackwater Park, Still Life, Deliverance, My Arms your Hearse, Damnation, Orchid, Morningrise, so I bought them in a really weird order, but I think i like it this way.

Mikael Akerfeldt said that he had very little input writing Bloodbath songs so I can imagine them going on without him.

Thats surprising, but then again, not, Its Dan Swano after all.
Mikael did a great job even if he didn't input anything. But he and swano have been buddies for a long time, so I bet Mikael trusted Swano with all the choices anyways.
As for peter...I dunno how its going to sound or anything, but I'm at least willing to give it a shot. Is there an estimate of when the next BB is coming out?
By the way, who actually likes the very last song on Damnation?
Its starting to really grow on me, its a pretty eerie song.

OPETH \m/ \m/
a mate introduced me to 'to bid you farewell' and i picked up morningrise, and that is still my favourite metal album of all time. i got morningrise, my arms, and still ife. black rose immortal is a favourite track of mine, at the moment my fave is april ethereeal but BRI was for a long time my favourite track.
damnation is quite a good album, it does indeed explore their melodic side, but i am not a big fan of the songs themselves. while i applaud them once again for exploration and experimentation, i would have prefered an album of harvests, to bid you farewells, and benighteds.
LONG LIVE OPEEEEEEETH
o i didnt mention, the dvd (which i also own) is quite impressive. lamentations is more worth buying damnation, it covers all the damnation tracks

Opeth, my favorite band at the moment

I got started listening to Opeth when I found some mp3s from Blackwater
Park. I was astounded with their musicianship and talent. Shortly thereafter I was able to see them play in a small club in San Francisco bay area (The Pound). The sound system their is really good for a small venue. They played all of their ass kicking heavy stuff with a few slower songs. I was fortunate to see them again at the Filmore also in SF. They played more of their stuff from Damnation and newer stuff. Also saw Porcupine Tree at that time. I am currently converting as many of the guitar tabs here to sheet music using Tabledit program. Since I play piano, I like to play some of their music on piano/keyboard. I use a Roland FP3, great keyboard if you ask me.

As for Katatonia, also one of my favoirtes I like their early stuff better. I recently found the artist from October Tide Rain without end was selling that CD on ebay, picked it up even though I had downloaded the Mp3s for it. I still can't find Grey Dawn CD anywhere, but have the Mp3s for it burned to a CD. October Tide project was a great one. I kind of wish Katatonia still played like that.

As we see even Opeth has changed with time, as long as they can keep their great melodies and their great changes from hard metal to soft acoustic I will love this band. I am looking forward to their next show here even though it won't be for some time. In the mean time I am collecting DVDs of their concerts.

Glenn
