    Ive been thinking about this intensely for the last couple of days,
    And i think that the next album will be more rock, than metal.

    Either way they decide as long as the album is solid, then theres no real problem.

    I think next album will be a concept... based on a song called I hate HipHop.

    then you haven't heard Tribute - Tenacious D.. or Wonderboy! :kickass:
    just joking.
    15+ min songs can get boring though, unless they contain long and well created solos.

    Seeing as they are with Roadrunner, whom commercial is their middle name, it is unlikely that long songs will feature. Especially those longer than 15 minutes.

    I would love to see a new concept album as long as it has Opeth's trademark healthy mix of soft harmonies and heavy passages!

    I've thought about what I was really missing and have come to this conclusion - songs like Burden are sweet and Opeth should keep doing them, but on Watershed the two main things they lost are creative metal riffs/melodies and some vocal quality.

    On the riffs - really the only distortion riff that was that creative on the album was Hessian Peel (Also Hex Omega, but that song was pretty meh tbh) I'm not asking them to go way back to Still Life days or something and write lead guitar parts like you see in The Moor, Serenity Painted Death, and Moonlapse Vertigo, but really, they even had much less generic riffs on the last one with the leads in Harlequin Forest, the all around unique riffs of Beneath the Mire, and more interesting rhythms in Ghost of Perdition. In Watershed, well....Heir Apparent = mostly chugging open notes with octaves and an occasional lead bit thrown in, Hessian Peel = the two riffs after the solo are really good, the other three distortion riffs in the song are incredibly generic, The Lotus Eater = outside of the riff that goes on in the second minute, this song is pretty terrible for riffs - thank god it has amazing leads, Hex Omega = just a tip...don't waste good riffs on bad songs lol.

    With the vocals - obviously it was a great clean vocal performance but that's all it was, seems like Mike is just showing off on the clean vocals a lot. To me a lot of the cleans lack feeling because of said showing off. And the growls are just nowhere near as good as...well any of their other albums. Mike's growl is much more straight death metal now from what I can tell whereas the other growls actually had some feeling.

    I wish Opeth would drop an album every 18 months or so, instead of every three years.
    I understand the need to tour, as that's where the money is.
    I think of Iron Maiden, who toured their asses off, yet still found the time to drop an album every year.
    Mike is an amazing song writer, and I want to hear more.
    I don't want to wait for 2011 for the next album!

    Really a fusion between King Crimson and death metal. A really difficult and experimental metal album.
