Opeth: 6 Songs sind fertig

Während im März bezüglich des Nachfolgers von OPETHs „Heritage“ (2011) noch nicht viel feststand (Metal1 berichtete), äußerte sich Frontmann Mikael Åkerfeldt nun präziser in einem Interview:
I have about six songs done and another two or three just started plus a million ideas that I haven’t processed yet. Some songs are simple and stripped-down, while others are epic in the true sense of the word. Business as usual, hopefully with unusual music.

Außerdem spricht Åkerfeldt davon, dass sich die Fans auf Streicher einstellen sollten:
Some of these things could easily be done with synthetic sounds or effects, but recording the Storm Corrosion LP with Steven Wilson made me realize what a massive difference it can mean to incorporate the real shit. I’m semi-pretentious in my songwriting and sometimes I go all in. I think it’s time for ‚all in‘ with strings and the full monty. Hopefully it won’t be a mess.
