Åkerfeldt im Alleingang


OPETH Sänger Mikael Åkerfeldt denkt darüber nach ein Singer/Songwriter Album aufzunehmen. Bisher ist zwar noch kein Song geschrieben worden doch er ist sich sicher seinen Plan irgendwann in die Tat umzusetzen und sagt dazu folgendes:

„My views [regarding songwriting] have broadened a little bit. I guess when I discovered Nick Drake, that’s when I really got into that whole simplistic type of music that really needs something strong — strong material in order to make it come across with so little.

I’ve always been wanting to do a thing like that. I’ve got a bunch of lovely acoustic guitars back I wanna use more. Even though OPETH could probably do an album like that, I wanna do it on my own, and in that sense, I wanna record it on my own — in my house, basically. I think I can do it well. I think I can do a good album like that.

I’d like to maybe simplify it even more [than the OPETH acoustic stuff], and have it just chords playing, and maybe some finger-picking stuff, so I could be able to perform it if I would wanna do that. So I don’t want it to be lots of tracks, like overdubbing guitars with lots of melodies; I want it to be fairly simplistic so if I wanted to, I could play it live on my own… on a stool.“

Und weiter: „I’m getting ready to write because every time I sit down and play, I come up with something that I like,“
