    I would really love to hear some growl parts sung with clean vocals... I mean, just imagine Mike singing a song like Ghost of perdition clean all the way through. I can almost hear it now:

    Ghost of Mother
    Lingering death
    Ghost on Mother's bed
    Black strands on the pillow
    Contour of her health
    Twisted face upon the head...

    :) :)

    Well, it only sounded weird. Besides, as long as they're doing new material, there's no need for them to "slow" down and do something like an acoustic gig.

    Maybe that's the secret. Maybe one day our music will be appreciated as much as Opeth's and we can have our own message boards full of idiots :loco:

    This is actually what I do a lot when I'm playing Opeth songs on guitar, since I'm not much of a growler. Its also what I'll do when my band plays some Opeth covers.

    Cool! Is it hard coming up with melodies? Cause the growls don't really have any melodies, they're just screamed words...

    He can sort of whisper vocals (think Agalloch) where he would normally growl. I think it would sound eerie and cool.

    nice! it would be fun to hear! It would be fun to hear peoples ideas of what the singing vocals should be like, someone should do this and record it, i would if i would have enough time on my hands. Half the job is done, vocal rythms and dynamics, so it's only the melodies one needs to figure out.

    I bet the moor would be awesome with singing vox only.

    Lots of the melodies are kinda already there in the music so its not too hard. For instance the growly bit towards the end of Deliverance (around 8 mins or so) actually has some great melodies hidden there since its over the top of a good chord progression.

    I've got an alright ear for harmonies etc. (if I say so myself :erk:) and I reckon theres plenty of room for interpretation in Opeth's music.

    If I find time and place I'll try to sing GoP intro and something else, I've got a picture of how it would go. :)

    Edit: If they did acoustic gig, I'd suggest a setlist something like this;

    Bleak
    Moonlapse vertigo
    By the pain I see in others
    Windowpane
    Ghost of perdition
    The drapery falls
    Credence
    To bid you farevel
