    why should opeth be "nu-metal"?just because we don't have 183473minutes songs? if that0s what people are looking for, go and listen to dream theater.

    anyway, damnation is an astonishing piece of art and no one got pissed because it was "not metal". i would be fine with some kind of "Blackwater Park II" :p naah, kidding.
    from opeth i always expect nothing but the best, the music in it's pure state. let's wait! all the reviews i've been reading seem pretty interesting and make me drool for the album. plus, opeth are coming to Portugal ^^

    Unfortunately some people did get pissed because Damnation wasn't metal... but anyway.

    Some of the posts here are ridiculous. Like, frighteningly ridiculous. People angry about 'lack of metal' on an album they haven't even heard?!?!? Complaining about track lengths???

    Please tell me you're joking...

    Why do you want long songs anyway? It certainly doesn't make a song any better if it's drawn out slightly longer for lengths sake.

    You sound like a moron to me.
    Who cares how long the songs are, you haven't even heard the album, how can you assume short songs=nu-metal?
    I guess you're stuck about 12 years in the past, because Opeth hasn't done an entire album of songs that clocked in at 10 minutes long or higher since Morningrise..

    I just hope the vocals will fucking own as usual. I think that Mike has the most brutal vocals on Deliverance, and I fucking love it :p more brutal vocals!

    Although I don't want Mike to repeat himself, it would fucking crush if he ever did something like the part in Serenity Painted Death (you should know which part I'm thinking of!), that has to be the most brutal moment in Opeth history I believe :kickass:

    I hope the growls/screams are as great as they are mid-way through the Grand Conjuration.
