I’m not lingering on this record (Sorceress) as being a beacon of hope for anything; it’s just what we did then and I’m hoping next time we’re going to do something different and I hope, something twisted. Nothing necessarily ‘great,' but twisted at least."

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.

Indeed, but happy they announced it. With Episode IX and a new Opeth album, 2019 looks awesome

I hope it's wee bit more metal than the last three albums. :haz:

That gives them plenty of time. I wonder if it will be more in the metal direction or more in the prog direction. It seems like most of their metal fans have given up on them by now(not that I care).

I'm looking forward to this one.  I've seen them twice.  Opeth was my user name at another website.
