Mikael Åkerfeldt's assertion that metalheads “don’t really want to know about what they’re getting” seems to make zero sense in a world where people download albums before buying them, or at least hear them on YouTube or via label-sponsored streaming on SoundCloud. In fact, metalheads have always wanted to hear the album before buying, even when they had to do it with CD players and headphones in record stores (as in the 1990s). It seems as if metalheads are picking albums for reasons that Åkerfeldt just doesn’t understand.

So the old 'people who don't like my music don't understand it' card, eh?

Guy is so far up his own ass he's resorted to using "typical Opeth fanboy argument number one". Not that it's any surprise. This guy was always a cunt when he'd post on the old Opeth forum.

akerfeldt's right
article is wrong and terribly written

opeth's newer albums still aren't good though. but i admire them for at least trying to evolve with each release.

This guy's full of shit here, though he was pretty cool when I met him. My guess he's just pissed over the bad reaction to ditching the metal side of Opeth and going for the full on "rip off all the 70s prog known to man" thing. Well, sorry but...you spend 20 odd years making metal then suddenly drop it, what the hell do you expect?

"Another band that deserves a comparison to Opeth is Tiamat (formerly Treblinka, before they realized how that name could be mis-interpreted)."

I was under the impression that 'Treblinka' was chosen intentionally. IIRC, there's a quote from the Swedish DM book that goes along the lines of, "Our name is Treblinka, and we are proud of it!"

Anyway, the author of that article is talking out of his ass.

Never heard Opeth. In saying so, I suspect most people who stick the boot into Opeth are previous fans of the band or boring people. Who cares.
