    I'll take the notion of there being no DM vocals in the next album with a grain of salt. I was of the impression that The Lotus Eater was a song that very much marked the direction towards which the band was heading next (I remember Mike saying something along those lines but don't remember when/where). But perhaps a song like Throat of Winter (which is awesome) is more indicative of the band's sound for the next album at this point.

    In any case, whatever they decide to do I am more than excited for this album and can't wait to get/hear it. But a complete absence of DM vocals would be unexpected.

    im actually sort of looking forward to this album more now.
    it's something new, and what's a band without change and diversity. i mean Ulver has changed their sound like 3-4 times now, and shadows of the sun (one of their more recent albums) was arguably the greatest effort they ever put forth, and was nothing like say....bergtatt.

    on the other hand, agalloch just put out a new album and ...it has all the elements of basic agalloch, but is not nearly as unbelievable as say the mantle or ashes.

    my point is that if opeth put out another standard opeth album, could anyone see it being as good as say still life, or blackwater park? or *insert favorite opeth album*. damnation is one of the best because its so different from all their other stuff while still being a great album on its own.
    plus, no one has actually HEARD the new opeth, so we can't say it will be good or bad. im hoping and expecting it to be good, but it could also turn out shitty. either way its written and recorded, so now it's simply a waiting game

    It sounds like Roadrunner has got something to do with this. Bands who are in this label came in and put out awesome albums at first and then release shitier albums the next.. But thats just me...

    roadrunner do tell bands what to do so they can sell more albums, deicide and fear factory confirmed it in a few interviews, same with pestilence long time ago.

    Micke Å is way too full of himself to give a shit about what RR says.

    well, mameli is also too full of himself and roadrunner fucked quite a bit with pestilence back in the day, if you're under contract then you're simply doomed to the label's will, can't remember where I saw that interview with deicide's drummer where he told many of those stuff :)

    Once I read in an interview in which Mikael stated that he wont let their label to tell them what to do and he goes his own way.

    I would actually prefer to blame RR, cause being RR's fault, once Opeth leaves the label, Mike would go back to growl properly... but it seems that's not the case :(

    newsflash: 99% of labels will tell the band what to do, in some stuff

    Of course. But are you seriously thinking RR would tell Opeth, who is seen as a DM band, to make a fuckin 70s prog record? Where is the logic in that? If anything it would be the other way around. I can imagine RR beeing pissed at them, or at least worried, for leaving their "working formula" behind.

    So no, this is not RRs fault.
