Just listen to Watershed. All of the songs have that kind of weird atmosphere.

Ghost Reveries and Watershed are full of stuff like that. Better written on GR though, if only marginally.

I guess for the artists themselves smoking pot is very helpful at times. If you are going to create something or think outside the box during your altered reality pot can be the way to go. But if you are just listening to music and not diong anything but eating chips and bitching about your sad life... then its a waste of good pot imo

^ If you need pot to be creative... Well, lets just say you probably arent very creative.

If it enhances your creativity however, I guess that's cool.

I didn't see the word "need" in his post.

So, not really a regular here. Forgive me if it's already been posted, but I just found an interview (interview itself is a video) that Mikael did with PitCam.TV, where he talked about how he liked their current lineup, the Wacken Festival, and that he is writing the new album. (We probably won't get a new album until late 2013.) And frankly, I hope it's more in that "traditional" Opeth style than in the style of Heritage.
(Heritage is a good album, just it doesn't really seem like it's Opeth. It reminds me more of a prog rock group from the '70s. I'm sure many others like it. )

http://metalstorm.net/events/news_c...p?news_id=17546

Note: The first language of the interviewer obviously isn't English. He has some odd diction, but he's mostly understandable.

True. I guess that's a better description. But it sure didn't sound like Metal.

Edit:
At least, none of the members of Opeth pulled a "Lars Ulrich" and started insisting anyone who didn't like it was a dildo and that it was all artistic and shit. The fact that they didn't has convinced me to actually buy the album when I can (only listened to the album on Youtube so far).

Agreed hard. It's not a bad record, but it wears its influences on its shoulder and is way too pointed in reminding us about them. As long as they don't put out another Watershed, I don't really care what direction they go. I like Akerfeldt's voice and songwriting, and Watershed only had one of those.

I just bought Maiden's Brave New World a few weeks back, so don't take what I wrote too seriously

I used to like Opeth back when I was younger and getting into extreme metal for the first time. I still appreciate their musicianship and I think they have some great ideas, but everything after about Still Life lacks energy and consistency in songwriting quality. Heritage in particular was just a boring mess of an album for me, and the last few have only had a few good songs between them. Even so, once you realize most of the ideas were lifted from other bands like Edge of Sanity, those earlier albums also lose their appeal.

Nowadays I just sort of view them as a gateway band at best, hipster metal at worst.

On the other side of that coin, one could say how your post is a boring mess of opinions that seems like it has some good ideas in it until you realize that all the ideas were lifted & regurgitated from people on other forums. Nowadays I view opinions like this as trolling at best, or generic, sheep-like mentality at worst.

I think some will agree that those who used to love Opeth and don't quite love them so much anymore... simply just listened to too much Opeth and got terribly sick of it. Orchid - BWP was a stellar period of output, however cut&paste the recipes turned out to be sometimes. I do think they peaked at BWP though - just bumped it yesterday after a while and I enjoyed it as much as I did a few years ago. Takeaway sentiment is that I haven't noticed the same lasting value in Opeth's music as I did with other bands through the years.

p.s. TGC sucks monkeyballs. Worst. Song. Ever.

It's a pretty shitty song. I love Ghost Reveries and BWP. Those two are just intense.

Miss your posts in these parts Darkstar, your comments are always a pleasure to read, even if I disagree.

The first three off Ghost Reveries are alongside their best for me. Shame the album goes downhill a bit after that.
