    I've made an ambitious cover of the song Blackwater Park by Opeth together with some guys from Finland, and there will be a live premiere tomorrow (Friday April 24th) at 9PM GMT+2.

    I've aimed to be faithful to the original while having a bit of a more fat and modern sound. Especially guitars and drums I tried to steer more in the direction of Jens Bogren.

    Come and hang out! (Or watch it afterwards if you don't have time) :cheers:

    Holy shit that is really, really well done. This was the single song I can attribute to being my gateway into death metal, especially getting into growled harsh vocals. Who did them on this? He nailed the clear enunciation that Mikael Akerfeldt always does so well!

    His name is Okko Solanterä, and he's one of the closest I've ever heard to Mike. He's in two bands, Babylonfall and Horizon Ignited.
