OPETH || MIKAEL AKERFELDT "I WANTED TO GET BACK TO REAL."
Posted on April 30, 2014
Opeth frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt recently spoke to Ultimate-Guitar.com about the bands eagerly awaited album Pale Communion. Mikael discusses recording at the world famous Rockfield Studio;
"It was just a good studio. It had a nice Neve console, which is why we went for that. There were two studios and we opted for the one with the Neve console. It had a nice room and it was a really good studio and we had a f--kin' superb engineer in Tom Dalgety. But it's the location - it was in the middle of f--king nowhere. You've got fields, sheep and horses and cows around. There's a little town about 20-minutes walk from the studio where they have tiny pubs, some restaurants and stuff like that. The scenery there and the location was I think the best part of the studio. The studio itself was just a really, really good studio like so many other studios around the world."
