It’s a strange idea, but it just might work: Trailblazing prog-metal outfit Opeth will perform on-board a cruise ship this fall as part of Sweden’s Silja Festival. Mellotronen Records organized the three-day floating fest, which sets sail from Stockholm on September 6th, with a destination of Riga.
The line-up also features British prog-rockers Cressida, Swedish prog-rockers Trettioåriga kriget, and Italian horror composer Fabio Frizzi. For more information, check out http://www.melloboat.se/en/
Opeth announced the details today on their Facebook. According to the note, the “notoriously sea-sick” band is also currently working on their 11th LP.
