This was a recent status update on Opeth's Facebook:

Hi guys! I'm writing from beyond the grave. Seriously, I was not in a car crash and I haven't broken my arm. All that happened is I hit my head in mastodons tour bus as I was getting a new pair of (red) underwear out from my suitcase. Wish the story was more rock and roll, believe me. Anyways I split my head open down to the skullbone and had to be taken to the emergency. They gave me a bunch of shots in the wound, cleaned me up and stapled my head shut with 8 metal staples. Head is sore and if I smile it feels like the wound is gonna burst open again, but I'll be on stage by tomorrow again. I feel extremely disappointed that we couldn't play at the myth in Minneapolis, but paramedics told me I couldn't. We will reschedule the show for our next trip to the USA. So all rumors of me being in a car crash are false. I did crash my head into a car though, well...a bus really. Sorry for disappointing our fans in Minneapolis but I hope you understand. See you next time. Best. Mikael

I wonder what it looks like with the 8 metal staples holding it closed. I wonder if he is going to have a bald spot there after it heals.

I love Opeth best when there is a mix of aggression and moments of soaring beauty in the same song.

So do I, even though I'd consider Damnation to be one of my favorite albums.

Storm Corrosion is boring as shit. I'm somehow disappointed while not at all surprised. Weird.

I tried to play one song on youtube but the buffering drove me up the wall. I haven't gone back yet to take another listen. Is it true that Mikael only does vocals on one song?

Here's a photo of the staples! I think I'd pass out if I had to get any kind of staples in my flesh.

He does vocals on two songs. On one of them, it's a kind of falsetto vocal style that he opens the song with before Steven takes over the rest of the way. But yeah...it's kind of annoying. You've got two guys, one of whom has an awesome voice and the other who's really not a very good singer at all, so who do you choose to handle most of the vocals? Steven Wilson, of course. The vox are seriously 80% Steven. NOT what I was looking forward to hearing!
