Thumbs up Mikael Akerfeldt planning acoustic solo album

http://www.sputnikmusic.com/news.php?newsid=10678

Lookin forward to this since Damnation is the only Opeth I can dig, but I really dig it. I'm sure this will be of comparable quality.

Very very excited for this. But it's news to me that you don't like Opeth anymore.

Their death metal stuff feels pointless to me when they can do the mellow/melodic music so well. It just fucks up the vibe when they throw in those heavy parts, too surgical and clean for my taste.

Fair enough. That means you should still dig at least half of all their albums except for Orchid though. I'm still a fanboy.

Yeah that's the thing it bums me out cuz it'll be going good then they do some random 'progressive' part that seems forced or goes nowhere. Blackwater Park has the best of their heavy though for me, though I haven't listened to it in awhile.

Blackwater Park is without a doubt their best record, but on the whole I really can't agree with you. They're still one of my favorite bands.

But we'll bond over the solo album for sure.

This makes me think all the other dudes in Opeth really really like Death Metal, and Mikael hates it. So he is going off and doing an acoustic album because they won't let him not do death metal. haha.
