Opeth Complete New Album

OPETH leader Mikael Ã…kerfeldt has issued the following update:

"As some of you might know Opeth is doing a pretty rare gig on March 8th. A big fucking boat will be crossing the Nordic sea in the middle of the night, and onboard you'll hear some Swedish fucking prog whatever bollocks death type music! The Mellotronen store (the company sponsoring the event) has now closed down but you can reach them through their website at Mellotronen.com and read the blog about this event. You can also see the concert poster artwork, done by Roger Wooton and Glen Goring from COMUS. For me, this is insanely awesome that they've created this one especially for this event.??This gig will be our warm up for the coming UK and US tour and we are most likely going to premier a new song on there plus a few old tunes. On top of that Comus are playing (for the first time since 1972), KATATONIA, LEAFHOUND, ANEKDOTEN, the legendary BO HANSSON and many more. There are some planned secret appearances that I can't really speak of but they will become legendary, no question about it.??It will be a nice trip I'm sure, lots of talk about obscure bands, lots of drinking, gambling (not me) and stuff like that. Maybe some of you will get lucky. I'll be nervous but it'll be awesome. Hope to see some of you there. I don't know how big the capacity of this boat is but I certainly advise you guys to check out the availability of the tickets well in advance as this is a one-time only happening.??Anything else? Hmmmm... let's see... Oh, of course! The album is done, mixed and all. I'm listening to it right now. I want to boast, but I'll keep it together and do it later instead. More info on this soon!"
