OPETH guitarist Peter Lindgren married longtime girlfriend Jessica Svensson on August 21 at Gålögården outside Stockholm, Sweden.

In other news, Peaceville Records reportedly have plans to release a 5.1 surround sound mix re-release of OPETH's fourth album, "Still Life". More information will be made available soon.

Also on the OPETH-related front, OPETH session keyboardist Per Wiberg has laid down his keyboard tracks at Studio Fredman for the new SPIRITUAL BEGGARS album, tentatively due in early 2005. He also recently embarked on a shorter tour of Northern Sweden with legendary blues band SKY HIGH, led by famed guitarist Claes Yngström.

That was actually the first time I ever listened to Opeth, and I have not looked back since. I mainly went to that show to see Moonspell, and they were awesome, but Opeth dominated. Also the first time I seen Devildriver.

I went to that show too. Except Opeth's drummer was sick that day so they played a very, very mellow set.

I can hear fanboy hearts around the world breaking - Mikael's taken, Peter's taken, guess they'll move in on the Martins.

I've had the pleasure of seeing Opeth twice, I would say that an Opeth concert is an essential experience for this generation.

I have Orchid, Morningrise, Still Life, & Blackwater Park. I hear that Deliverance is awesome, and I do love the title track, but I plan on getting My Arms, Your Hearse next if I can find it. As of now I can't really pick a favorite because all of them are awesome. If I was tied down and forced to pick one, I'd say Blackwater Park (The Drapery Falls) or Morningrise (Advent, The Night & the Silent Water). But The Moor & Godhead's Lament off of Still Life are so f***ing awesome that it's hard not to pick that one, and the same with Orchid (In Mist She Was Standing, Apostle in Triumph). Opeth is just too f***ing awesome.

You can't miss with Opeth, some people b****ed about Damnation, but f*** 'em. I have all of the albums. My order of preference changes, but in general, I think they've gotten gradually weaker over the years. Even so, Damnation is still better than most bands best.
