OPETH Frontman Becomes First-Time Dad - Sep. 18, 2004
Congratulations are in order for OPETH frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt and his wife Anna, who became the parents of a baby daughter, Melinda, this past Monday (Sept. 13). It is the couple's first child.
As previously reported, Åkerfeldt has started writing material for the group's next album, tentatively scheduled to be recorded sometime in the early spring of 2005. OPETH are officially free agents as a result of having been dropped by BMG/Zomba after their previous label, Music For Nations, was folded into parent company Zomba Records Group (the world's largest independent music group). The band are looking through new label offers at the moment.
I do not believe he called his daughter Melinda, probably a joke. But congrats anyway Mikael!
opeth has been my favorite band for years, but this is the first time i have felt compelled to post on the forum. congratulations to mikael and anna and i wish you the best of luck and years of happiness in raising your daughter.

Congratulation to Mike and his wife Anna!
Sincerely wish you the best!
Im sure Melinda will expand your inspiration for the future of Opeth!
is there an echo in here?
why is it a joke that he called her melinda? he probably likes the name.
^After all, he's already witten an album devoted to her.
Yeah, he wrote an album on which his daughter gets her throat slit... That's not very nice now is it.
I think it's strange that they called their daughter Melinda. Not enough inspiration I guess? But well, it's their decision. Congratulations anyway.
Well, he used the name "Melinda" in still life pretty much at random, correct? It's probably just a name that he likes. It's not altogether too ridiculous for him to name his daughter "Melinda". Be thankful he didn't name her "Eternal Soul Torture"...
Or at least "You"...
Cool name, by the way. I like how "Melinda Åkerfeldt" sounds...
Congrats Mike and Anna!
What he said
His daughter's name is Godhead.
i had no idea. congrats mike/anna. interesting that they named her melinda, if it is true.
who is melinda
....i have now officially lost all hope for this board.....
Congratulations Mikael and Anna! you wont believe how the time flies! enjoy the little one while shes still little!! Bring her on tour!
While Opeth was touring the US in Jan/Feb, I remember someone asking Mikael, to wit, "How's your wife?" He responded, "She's doing well, thanks." This was in reference to her being pregnant, I'm assuming.
Yeah, that was on the DVD.
Congrats Mikael and Anna!!
