This was already pretty much a fact but...

...proof that Mikael Akerfeldt really is the best fucking vocalist of all time.

I could never get into this band. Just doesn't appeal to me.

Man I haven't listened to them for quite sometime, that was refreshing. And yes, those vocals are outrageous.

He's good, but "best of all time"?

Surely you jest.

It's all a matter of opinion, there's no such thing as best when it comes to music.

But Mikael is one of my favorite vocalists of all time in any form of music.

Actually, I find the brutal vocals a bit too much for this song. Sound great on the new Bloodbath though.

I was enjoying the video, but I was distracted by the 'baby owned by Opeth' related vid.

For some reason Opeth seemed like something you'd be into to me... Different strokes!

Opeth is easily one of my top 5 favourite bands ever.

He's ok.
Nice cleans, but they sound like they've had a bit of post-prod work done on them.
Not saying they're not authentic, it's just a very nice sound for a live recording.
The metal vox are heavy, but sound like a fair few other vocalists...and have a solid amount of reverb or some bullshit.
But yeah, his cleans are tasty - his actual tone is nice as, i've always thought that.
But I don't really rate him heaps, but he is impressive in that his cleans AND his metal vox are both solid.
