    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!

    Yeah, he wrote an album on which his daughter gets her throat slit... That's not very nice now is it. :err:

    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"... :yuk:

    Cool name, by the way. I like how "Melinda Åkerfeldt" sounds...

    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.
