Really good interview, nice to hear him speaking in spanish.
I'm watching it, first the guy tells that they sold out the concert there in Madrid, Martin says he feels great for that, then Martin says is the best tour in Europe that they've done, he says they are very happy, then the interviewer tells that the last years have been both good and bad, on one side the increasing Opeth popularity, and on the other side the leaving of Martin and Peter, he asks how they feel about this, Martin says that at the begginning it was hard, but that the changes they've done haven't been a bad thing, the band sounds better than ever, they focus 100% on music now, the interviewer asks if he still keeps contact with Martin and Peter or if they are in a musical project, Martin says he doesn't know much about them, he says Peter is working but he is not in anything music involved, the interviewer asks if it's hard to combine his band tours and his life as a father, Martin says it is hard, but luckily Fred and Mike are also fathers so they can cheer up each another when they feel sad or tired the interviewer then asks how have the new members adapted, Martin says that it was very good, he almost can't notice any difference, that the changes were for good, the guys learned the songs pretty fast, the interviewer says that in Watershed we can find some of the most mellow sides of Opeth, and some of the most brutal parts too, Martin says that they try to make a different album each time, and this time it was the most notorious difference, and part of this could be the new members because Mike gets really inspired when he has new musicians, they can play different stuff, the interviewer tells him that in the Lamentations DVD we can see how Mike teaches him the bass parts moments before recording the songs, he asks how the composing and rehearsing has changed now, Martin says that for Watershed they rehearsed 1 1/2 months, so that helps everyone to know the songs better, the interviewer asks if Opeth are going to change in the future, if they will stay on the metal side or on the mellow side, Martin says that they are a mix of both and that there's always a chance to do something different, the interviewer asks if they feel tempted to make something more mainstream to attract more fans, or if they preffer to stay "underground" like Camel which is one of their influences, Martin says that when they compose they don't think of what the fans will think about it, they just write what they like, he says they can't write an album with 3 minutes hits on propuse, the interviewer asks what are they're future plans, Martin says that they have many tours ahead, then a break and a new album, he doesn't know when yet, the interviewer asks his 3 favorite albums, I didn't understand what he said the guy asks the 3 albums that he has been listening to lately, Martin says something else again
And that's pretty much it, sorry if it's not understandable I was typing while listening
He mentioned one morbid angel album, one from piazzolla and one from weather report.
Yeah I didn't bother rewinding that because it wasn't very important
What? That's IMO the most important part! I already know a lot about Opeth... time to learn about new music!
And what were you expecting in the Opeth forum? Try here then
I know. I like Weather Report.
i want to learn spanish :/
I didnt understand much of what he said but you can clearly see how much he changes from when he is speaking English to when he is speaking in his native tongue. More confident and talkative, turns things around, this is the real Mendez.
I bet he can put Mikael in the same position if the band was Urguaian and Mike was the only Swede in the band not the other way around.
How is his Spanish? Is he articulate? Does he have an accent?
Let us know.
Didnt read a shit but i tell you
Uruguay and Argentina have more or less the same accent so go figure out now.
OK, I have figured out that Uruguay and Argentine have the same accent more or less.
Somewhat it is. I just watched it and it's like i've said.
Is he still playing bass?
No, he just fakes it.
