    Dan has a great singing voice. He'd have no trouble at all doing duets with Mike. His growls aren't subpar either, just a different style to Mikael's. Have you heard Moontower?

    Dan is actually quite geared towards progressive rock and death metal, which coincidentally are the genres Opeth are most associated with. I don't see how a unison between the two could go awry.

    Agreed about Dan... he would be a great producer.

    So I'll ask this again... does anyone have the new single that they found that they can post the mp3 of? Again, I'm DYING to listen to it.

    youre assuming that dan is good at either.

    aside from the crimson albums, i dont know what would make him anymore qualified than anyone else to produce an opeth album.

    I don't think BWP, Deliverance or Damnation would be any better if Swano produced them and Wilson didn't.

    Yeah, I'm assuming. Just like BRI stated outright that Steven is a better producer than Dan, as if its some universal truth. I should add that the role of the producer isn't to add harmony vocals or growls anyway, so his statements about Dan's vocals being subpar are totally irrelevant (and totally untrue IMHO).

    The point is that we won't know how a record with another producer will sound like unless Opeth give it a shot. We can speculate all we want and say who we think would be best to take up the chair, there are plenty of people qualified for the gig but it seems Opeth have already made their choice.

    I think Shallow was kind of weak. I liked the other stuff in the medley better, so I still have pretty high hopes for the album.

    Danny says it is two full of people talking about off topic stuff an insulting each other and by the sound of it the band doesnt want to be associated with that shit. Some person called steak knife seemed to be one of the main culprits. Alot of them seem be be heading off to the Antimatter board though. There is no mod there so it was sorta free reign.
