    How do you get to hear these things before we do?

    i guess after having been burned for having my own opinions on this board or information that others already had known for so long, i've become slightly jaded. the comment was my fishing for something that obviously wasn't there.
    anyways, sorry for the attitude, and glad i could actually find something out about opeth that everybody didn't already know.

    Again with this... Jealous, but thanks for sharing. Anything else you can add? For instance, does he sing on the entire song, or is it just in isolated parts?

    I love the Peccatum albums (especially Lost In Reverie - FANTASTIC album :kickass:), but I'm having trouble getting into The Adversary. I can't figure out what it is I don't like about it. :erk: It's well done, but it just doesn't hold my interest...

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to hearing Mike's contribution to this album. Ihsahn is a fantastic musician, so I'll continue to support his work, regardless of how I feel about The Adversary.

    i taped one recording at opeth's rehearsal and along with some earlier ones i sent all of them to samoth, he made comps and included a bit of opeth and got mr lee barett from candlelight interested. its really cool how a band got signed without making a demo. musical talent and quality über allez.

    The magic man for Katatonia and Bloodbath himself, that was unexpected. New Diabolical Masquerade for the epic win.

    Me and my mate were talking about dream collaborations within metal, this was one of my top. Was already pumped for Angl, now I'm pretty goddamn excited. I had read/heard around they were friends and fans of each others work, a week before this was announced, i checked Ihsahn's myspace for Angl news and I saw Mike was added to Ihsahn's top friend on his myspace; got my thinking hopefully thats the "friend" Mike said he was to be doing vocals for. Far out Ihsahn is pulling out the big guns for guests for his solo work, Garm now Mike, cant find much better guests imo.

    Don't you love the Internet?:kickass:

    When I first got into metal in the 80s we had to wait for Hit Parader or Kerrang! to come out to find out shit. Now artists can talk with us!

    Sorry... Missed this. Mike opens the song with clean vocals. Then they trade off growls and screams. Then Mike goes back into clean vocals. Definitely a heart-stopper!

    Awesome, can't wait for this. The Adversary was amazing, Ihsahn is a very talented man.

    Jeez this is just as awesome as the "supergroup" lineup for Scariot's "Momentum Shift" (Oyvind from Spiral Architect on vox, Daniel Olaisen - ex-Satyricon Blood Red Throne on guitar, Asgeir Mickelson from Spiral Architect, Vintersorg and Borknagar on drums, Steve DiGiorgio - [no need to mention bands!] on bass and Lars Norberg also from Spiral Architect playing bass on the Death cover Symbolic). If you haven't yet got Momentum Shift, get it NOW - it was the most overlooked progressive metal album of 2007 imo.

    Back to the topic...
    Those who know who's gonna be in AngL will already know both Lars Norberg and Asgeir Mickelson are on the team, and couple this with the legends Ihsahn and Mike Akerfeldt on one track, and this album will be a progressive black metal wet dream, dammit!!! Lets just hope the bass drum isn't as clicky as it was on the Adversary - USUALLY Asgeir's bass drum samples are awesome.
