Sweden's Opeth has issued the following announcement about front man Mikael Akerfeldt recording a new collaboration with Steve Hackett of Genesis:

"Mikael has recorded some vocals in collaboration with legendary Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett. Mikael is featured on a re-recording of the classic mega-epos 'Supper's ready' from 1972's 'Foxtrot' album. Watch this space for further details about the upcoming release.

"Due to popular demand Mikael has recorded 8 further shows for Swedish national radio. 'De bortglömda mästerverken' (The forgotten masterpieces) is a series of shows where Mikael flips vinyl on air, playing mostly obscure progressive and psychedelic rock.

"The show is being produced by Andreas Matz for Radio P4 and will start airing on the 15th of July. You can also catch it online at this location."

In other recent coverage of Opeth, the band was looked at for our Sunday Old School column, and we also featured opposing and supporting opinion articles on the band's change in style with latest album "Heritage."

damn I am a huge opeth, but this guy just needs to quit writing material for opeth and start a band with a new name. I would have more respect for him if he did that.
