    (...Unbelievably, it seems there has never been a thread about this on the forum! Apologies if there is and I missed it in search...)

    As many on this forum have probably noticed, it says this on the Opeth official site:

    Additional projects, past/present:
    Mikael Åkerfeldt - S?rskogen, Eruption, Slo train company aka Blackhorse experience aka Castle music, Moonloop, Moon, El triumfo los muertos, Bruder des schattens, Heinz, Erase, Tv? apostlar, Headstone, Planet, Cerecloth, Probocis etc.etc

    Other than Sörskogen and Eruption, I don't believe I've ever heard any mention of any of these (although now I know where Blackhorse Experience on this forum got his name ;) , also, thanks to Fredreik Odefjärd's recent info on my GR thread, we now also know that Mikael did a CD full of funk, hip hop and techno grooves, possibly the same as one of the projects mentioned above?)

    Has anyone heard Mikael mention any of these projects in interviews, any details about them such as genre, how much material was written, what recordings exist if any, and so on?!?!

    Mikael, help us dedicated fans out! :)

    Yeah I'm still fascinated about the CD made for Fredrik, and desperate to hear it, but since I'll probably never be so lucky, I made this thread to at least find out information about that other LONG list of projects I pasted from the web site. :)

    Well, I did hear him say in an interview that he's been listening to a lot of James Brown lately. :loco:

    I bet that once Opeth is finished the label will pull off Nirvana and start releasing all these "unreleased" shit by Mike & co.

    Oh my god that would be.... just awesome ^^

    I read a interview with Steve Wilson in the "Gitarre und Bass" magazine from germany. He said that he has a secret projekt together with Mikael.

    I think that's in reference to their gay love affair.

    I would die happy if mikael and dan swano picked up where they left off

    "mordet I grottan" was beautiful. Youtube it if you haven't already!

    What I would REALLY want to hear is those two songs that have never been released from the Deliverance and Damnation albums. Oh wait, is that from these two albums? I'm not sure anymore. Oh yeah it is!

    Yeah, Mikael said that 16 songs were fully recorded during the D&D sessions. I've always wanted to hear those too.

    So has no one ever heard any info in interviews or anywhere about all those many projects Mike put in his list? Mike, you out there? :)
