He has written about eight songs for it thus far, and according to Opeth frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt who just spoke with Metal Hammer, the material is varied.
“The direction is going straight into the territory of ‘all over the place,‘“ Mike said.

I agree. I happen to think Opeth have yet to release a bad tune. Whatcha think of that, fuckheads?
“We have a couple of calm songs, a couple of really heavy songs, one proper heavy metal song and I have one epic old-school Opeth song that reminds me of the first two records, with lots of riffs stacked up! I’m really happy with it all. I think we have something big on our hands this time.”
I’m looking forward to it.
Name one shitty Opeth song that isn’t a minute-long interlude. Try.
