James caught my interest when he said that he was down in Sweden recording the Opeth guys. Whilst unfortunately there's no Opeth album studio update for us, we do now know that 3 of the guys are involved on the upcoming Death tribute. Orsm.
i'm not involved in the new Opeth at all.. i'm here recording 3 of the guys for the Death tribute CD i've been working on, which is why i was at Andy LaRoque's a few days back and then at In Flames' studio right after that. not to mention being for 2 weeks at Mr Sneap's studio where for the very same project i have recorded guys from both Carcass and Napalm Death. i will be returning to Backstage right after i leave here actually in order to mix the project for Andy's old Sabbat singer, Martin Walkyier, that i tracked the majority of the vocals for when i was just recently there.
sorry, no Opeth "studio" reports from me, that would be a "party foul"... you'll have to wait to get it from them.. i will tell you though that it's sounding great!
