    Very interesting stuff indeed.....

    Mikael Åkerfeldt has been confirmed as the vocalist for the first and last Bloodbath gig. This will take place at Germany's famous Wacken open air festival on the 4th of August. The band will perform songs from all three albums including the non-Åkerfeldt death-bomb "Nightmares made flesh" that featured Peter Tägtgren on vocals. The all star line-up will consist of: Anders Nyström (Katatonia), Jonas Renkse (Katatonia), Dan Swanö (legendary multi musician), Martin Axenrot (Nifelheim, Witchery etc) and Mikael Åkerfeldt. Be there or....well, of course you'll be there!!

    Opeth will be entering Fashination street studios on March 15 to record their 8th yet untitled opus. The band are currently in rehearsal mode, which is a rare occasion having recorded the last 4 records without rehearsing. The recording will be overseen by the uprising recording mogul Jens Bogren. As of today no names for production duties have surfaced and it looks like the next record will be a band produced effort. Nothing has been decided regarding who's taking care of the mix either so we'll have to keep you wondering.

    Opeth and their management have spent the last month meeting the 5 top label candidates for the next Opeth recording contract. The names are still secret but a decision will be made very soon and obviously announced here earlier than anywhere else.

    Several Summer festival appearances have been confirmed and will be posted here soon. A Summer tour of the US has also been confirmed and will be posted here soon as well. The matters are still very "hush, hush" so we can't say anything more at this point. What can be said is that the band will make a few low-profile apperances prior to the next release and several full blown headline tours all over the world after the release. Take your rest now!


    Enjoy! :devil:

    SW not a confirmed producer? Bloodbath show! US Tour Confirmed!! :headbang: Label Soon + Studio Time to Record Soon = New Record Sooner than later!! :headbang:

    It's a good day.

    I honestly don't know how effective the petition was, but I dearly hope it did play a major role.

    for what it's worth, You're welcome Wolftribe.

    I'd better fucking see you at Wacken!!!

    wow. i'm in shock! i wish i could go to germany and see this legendary performance, but its impossible.

    i will however make it to the upcoming us tour. i can't fucking wait!!!! man, i got so excited just reading it. i've also been awaiting this new album. very anxious to hear it.

    Maybe Opeth could cover a Bloodbath song on the upcoming tour? but that would mean they would have to switch instruments tuned to b-standard and whatnot so it probably wouldn't happen.

    Cheers!

    Hmm... "the first and the last Bloodbath gig" that doesnt sound too promising for bloodbath.. I was hoping they would become a live band, at least a bit.

    :OMG: I thought Steven Wilson was the producer. I loved what hid especially on bwp.
    Rehearsal will be good for the band. They will be more prepared than on deliverance.
    Interesting news

    hopefully they'll get most of the material worked out before they actually go to record so we can get an album no later than mid summer \m/

    also, i hope there is a video (bootleg or official) of bloodbath at Wacken

    YES! Please! For those of us where attendance at Wacken is an impossibility.

    This is all great news. It seems Opeth have been fairly busy whilst we've been bitching and speculating.

    Seriously.. I want some high quality sound for this one. I would love to go but Germany just aint happening...

    The other news is very exciting as well. Can't wait until more news about the label and new album comes in.

    HOORAY! Best update for a long time that. The guys really have been busy, not just wasting time on eBay.
