    You aren't alone, nearly everything I've heard or read about watershed (including my own opinion) has been quite negative

    Really? When it came out everyone was jerking off over it like it was their best album ever, and from what I saw the press and reviews was outstandingly positive. I listened to it over and over, trying to get it to sink in but it never did. I even came back to it months later and listened to the whole album again and...nothing. Heir Apparent is the only song on that album that should be an Opeth song.

    Hopefully they heard a lot of the displeased fans and bad reviews about Watershed, maybe the new album won't be such a HUGE dissapointment (imo).

    Watershed is really bad imo. Not only for Opeth's standards, it's bad as in bad music. So cheesy and contrived.

    Ulver sounds interesting, but would have to hear the whole album...speaking of Garm, aren't we getting a reformed Arcturus album with Garm this year?

    Im going to shock people here with the first few on my list...

    Opeth
    Åkerfeldt/Wilson project
    Morbid Angel - Will it ever be released?
    Draconian - Hope they continue with the Kata-influenses.
    Amorphis - Loved the latest, better than the previous one imo.
    Swallow The Sun! - Probably in 2012 though, but I hope not. New Moon is one of the best albums ever.
    Meshuggah
    Decapitated
    Septicflesh
    Torchbearer - Death Meditations!!! 5 years of wait is finally over.
    Samael
    The Haunted
    Bloodbath? Probably not.

    Indeed. Most of all I hope they get some sort of tour sorted out.

    +1. Normally I try to avoid being disrespectful about others opinions, but in this case I always make an acceptation being that Varg and his "music" (*note the use of quotations) is such a disgrace to metal and mankind in general. The metal equivalent of the talentless Charles Manson. :puke: Only one reason why anyone still knows who these two losers are.

    I'm not going to defend Varg as an individual; A lot of people tend to worship the guy. I think he's clearly on the insane side- his extremist attitudes and stuff that he says is enough to turn me off entirely. But he never used racism as his lyrical subject and as for black metal, most of his stuff has been highly atmospheric and moody (even extremely beautiful, this coming from a convicted murderer). He creates memorable music through simplicity and repetition, something that a lot of people tend to miscontrue as "talentless"

    It's also interesting to hear the burzum stuff now, seeing as he has completely been blocked from the modern metal trends (and how there's pretty much no real black metal scene today.) "Belus" was tepid offering with a couple standout tracks, "Fallen" is way more interesting with much better songwriting; It will rank up with the more honest albums of 2011.

    I don't care what the guy did....nor do I care what any band does outside making their music...

    I like the 2 new Burzum albums.

    Varg is a nutter, murderer and God knows what else. If he wasn't a musician he'd be reviled by anybody.

    I'll admit I've not heard his records mind, but he's not really given me the biggest motivation to. There's a lot of bands on my "to listen to" list before him. And I mean a lot.
