    Oh, I'd bet money that Opeth is already signed and not waiting for a bidding war to come to an end - the main reason being that they are already in the studio, which is thousands of dollars a day. The record label puts that money up for Opeth (of course, Opeth will have to pay that back - read Steve Albini's article on music & money if you haven't already).

    I'd say that they're just waiting to announce the label at a good time. a pure marketing decision.

    Not only that but currently music piracy is completely destroying the music industry. There's a huge crisis both in the US and Australia. It's extremely hard to get a job, or find labels that are willing to sign artists these days. Nobody's making any profit anymore.

    I thought the decline of rap was to blame, people are getting sick of the shit an not buying albums, the industry needs a fresh trend.

    I thought that was just scaremongering.

    Albini is a great producer. His work with Neurosis is brilliant. That article hit the spot too.
    Oh and fuck Roadrunner, they fucked Cantrell and numerous other groups im too lazy to list.

    It seems pretty much confirmed that RR has signed Opeth.

    I still dont' get how you people think this?

    I can't find anything that suggests this on either OPeth's site or Roadrunner's.

    I wish Opeth signed with Century Media, as they have some of my actual/ex favorite bands (Novembre, Nevermore, Arch Enemy, Moonspell, Lacuna Coil, etc)

    As for nickelback, well, they once came to a fest here and in the day they played there was also Cradle of Filth and like, COF fans around here thrown rocks, beers bottles and cans to nickelback and they left stage without even playign their first song to the end and Cradle, which followed them in the set of bands for that day, played sooner!

    easily CoF. Nickelback's fault is repetitive riffs and uncanny catchiness. CoF has deeper problems :lol:

    By the way, I'm hearing this Roadrunner rumor in a lot of places, and it is scaring the hell out of me.

    This is a ridiculous thread, but it's still very interesting in many ways.

    Whoever Opeth signs with, I'm sure it'll be a wise decision. Mikael isn't retarded when it comes to marketing. After 7 albums, I'm sure their next album will be released with a decent label, at the very least.

    Nickleback have been writing the same song for about the last six years. At least CoF had some cool riffs.

    true enough, the thing is: the song nickelback keeps rewriting is better than whatever CoF comes up with :lol:

    CoF is without a doubt better than nickelback.

    "Sweden's OPETH are on the verge of inking a new record deal with Roadrunner Records, informed sources have told BLABBERMOUTH.NET. The band, who were previously signed to the now-defunct British label Music For Nations Records, recently entered Fascination Street studios in Örebro, Sweden to begin recording their eight album, tentatively due later in the year."

    OH MAN! WHATSUP NOW BITCHES?
