    Apology accepted dude! Thanks!

    It's extremely difficult for me to say exactly what it's going to sound like, but I feel inspired, we have a great bunch of musicians in the band whose abilities will be put to the test and utilized. However, not in a widdly widdly sense, but in a pure musical and selective sense. Opeth has never been about showing off, and that's something that will remain until the end. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I hope it's going to be a good record.

    Well, I kinda know it's going to be great....

    I like blastbeats too....

    Cheers
    Mike

    and with that we can rename the thread title to - upcoming album - no need to fear.

    p.s. i thought oinkness had been banned before. glad it is for good now.

    Sorry my bad English; "cut back smokes" means "stop smoking", is that right?

    Somewhere I read that a singer, I can't remeber the one but probably the current Iced Earth's, began improving his sing abilities after smoking twice the normal! :lol:

    Obviuosly I quoted the message I got the sentence from, but it's clear the "question" is for every one..

    Wow, this thread really turned into something good.

    Man, I'm glad I came back in this thread! To see that fool Oinkness get his "come-uppance" is awesome, and seeing Mike's comments about the new album is so welcome! I am still in awe over "My vocals are stronger too". Is it really possible to improve on perfection? Ha ha, just kidding, but Mike, you are without a doubt ALREADY one of the best rock/metal vocalists ever IMHO, and to think you are getting even better is just scary!!!

    God damn, I can't wait for this album!!!!! :headbang:

    Samsara: Thank you so much for banning Oinkness.

    Mike: Thanks for the update. It definitely sounds like it's going to kick ass. I can't wait for Per's organ solo. Also, the jazzy jam thing on the GR documentary with Lopez, Per, and Bass was pretty sweet. Out of curiousity have you ever thought about recording a song like that for an album?

    I nearly gave up on this thread, it was so full of bitching. What a refreshing turn of events!

    I'm so excited about the new album now (as if I wasn't already). How in love with music does Mike sound, btw? This is not your average metalhead. But we all knew that. I think this album is going to be really special. These updates have my imagination running wild...
