Igår skrev jag ett ultrakort inlägg och idag klipper och klistrar jag från sidan Metal Underground. Man kan undra om jag blivit biten av latmasken? Hursomhelst kommer det nu lite mer kött på benen om Opeths kommande skiva "Heritage". Följande uttalande har Mikael Åkerfeldt gjort angående albumet:
It will be our 10th album/observation. I dig it; we all do. In fact, it feels like I've been building up to write for and participate on an album like this since I was 19.
It's quite intense at times in some 'old' murky way, and quite beautiful and stark at times, if I may say so myself. It's obvious I'm going to say nice things about it since I wrote basically the whole piece, but I guess it will raise a few eyebrows and it certainly is an acquired taste. I think you'll need a slightly deeper understanding of our music as a whole to be able to appreciate this record. I've realized my influences for this album are so diverse that I can't really say what it sounds like. If I can compare it to any other band, it would have to be Opeth, but it's different from the stuff we've done before. I've listened a lot to Alice Cooper for the last year, yet I can't say it sounds like "No More Mr. Nice Guy". I hope you'll like it once you hear it.
