Mainman Mikael Åkerfeldt has issued the following update on a new DVD and the new album:
"Just a quick note to fill you (if you care) in on what's cooking and stuff....like that.....
"Roundhouse/U.K. gig DVD: Well, the music is mixed and it sounds nothing less than awesome I must say. The film material is also edited and it looks great too! We went through a lot of fan interviews as well which was hilarious. Most of the interview material that was shot is going to be used, although there were severe audio problems with some and those can't be used for that reason. I was struck by how drunk all of you fuckers were... great!! I felt like partying myself watching it! All I can say is, it will be pretty good all in all... pretty fucking good indeed. Release date? Don't know right now, I guess late spring.
"Next OPETH LP: I'm writing and it's going quite well. I have around a dozen of song ideas. Some are downright evil sounding....a few BATHORY (evil era '83-'87) parts, some tech-death ones, some overblown prog ballad ones, one Nick Drake thing, one complete prog thing with triple harmony vocals, one evocative Middle Eastern psychedelic metal arrangement with falsetto vocals (not as wimpy sounding as you might think), one '70s SCORPIONS sounding bit (like 'Living and Dying' type of stuff), one's totally murky forest-ish sounding dark prog-rock with loud vocals that shifts between major and minor, one tedious ugly/pretty little hobbit sounding symf part with moogs over a classical guitar, some soundtrack-ish sounding ones etc...
"Yes, it's business as usual....
"I don't know when or where we'll record but I guess late this year. I want to make sure it....rocks....somewhat!"
