As any Opeth fan is aware of, the band is in a constant state of evolution, especially over the last decade and even more particularly, in the 2010s where Akerfeldt has completely abandoned the use of his acclaimed guttural vocal style in the studio. They're a band that continue to challenge themselves and their fans and regarding the follow-up to Sorceress, Akerfeldt doesn't appear to want to act with haste. "Maybe the end of, or mid-2019, I’m thinking. I want to have a sabbatical, because we’ve been doing this for a long time, so I want to keep away and just be with my kids. Once I write songs, I want to sit and be," he commented.
