OPETH To Enter Studio In March

Sweden's OPETH have posted the following message at their official web site:

"Mikael Åkerfeldt has been confirmed as the vocalist for the first and last BLOODBATH gig. This will take place at Germany's famous Wacken Open Air festival on the 4th of August. The band will perform songs from all three albums including the non-Åkerfeldt death-bomb 'Nightmares Made Flesh' that featured Peter Tägtgren on vocals. The all-star line-up will consist of: Anders Nyström (KATATONIA), Jonas Renkse (KATATONIA), Dan Swanö (legendary multi musician), Martin Axenrot (NIFELHEIM, WITCHERY etc) and Mikael Åkerfeldt. Be there or....well, of course you'll be there!!

"OPETH will be entering Fashination street studios on March 15 to record their 8th yet-untitled opus. The band are currently in rehearsal mode, which is a rare occasion having recorded the last 4 records without rehearsing. The recording will be overseen by the uprising recording mogul Jens Bogren. As of today, no names for production duties have surfaced and it looks like the next record will be a band-produced effort. Nothing has been decided regarding who's taking care of the mix either so we'll have to keep you wondering.

"OPETH and their management have spent the last month meeting the five top label candidates for the next OPETH recording contract. The names are still secret but a decision will be made very soon and obviously announced here earlier than anywhere else.

"Several summer festival appearances have been confirmed and will be posted here soon. A summer tour of the U.S. has also been confirmed and will be posted here soon as well. The matters are still very 'hush, hush' so we can't say anything more at this point. What can be said is that the band will make a few low-profile apperances prior to the next release and several full-blown headline tours all over the world after the release."
