How arrogant.... don't you think that the rest of Opeth would have auditioned this new guitarist first? Of course they did! Obviously Mikael and the others feel he is right for the slot, so who are you to second guess them?
 
Let's see... YOU say his style doesn't fit Opeth, Mikael and the band says it does..hmm... who am I going to believe........
 
You need to calm down. I know they've auditioned him, and the band obviously thinks he'll bring something great to the band, but as a fan I'm still entitled to my opinion. My love for Opeth hasn't changed one bit, I'm just concerned as to what this change means in terms of the band's musical direction.
 
I'm skeptical, not arrogant.
 
Now please, lighten up.

+1. Please, don't count jump to conclusions yet. By the end of this year hopefulyl we'll know, but till then, it's only speculation. There was even some speculation about Per when he was chosen as a full member. Or when Opeth got a deal with RR. And after all, Ghost Reveries wasn't a sellout.

Of course you have a right to your opinion.. I would never argue that you don't. My problem with your post is that you come off sounding like you know better than the band about what will work for them, not just voicing your "concern" over the future musical direction.
 
Secondly, I AM calm, and I'm light as a feather.... Tongue

I am just not going to be convinced he is a good fit until I hear some new material.
 
This is most likely because that type of playing fit the bands he came from(I'm not familar with them). I'm sure he can play in more than one style and will adapt suitably for Opeth. However, I too am always a little skeptical.

I wish the best of luck to Peter and whatever he may do. 

I will wait until I hear more from this new guy to come to conclusions, but I am sure it is for the better, although I will miss Peter (and Martin).

First Martin López leaves Cry ok I'll try to live with that. But now watching internet news and found that one of the Best pair of guitarrists is broken is too much for me. This are really sad newsCryCryCryCry. Well together they played in 8 studio albums and 2 live releases. Praise Mikael Akerfeldt and Peter Lindgren as one of the greatest pairs of guitarrists of our times.

Good Luck to Opeth and Peter Lindgren.
