I just remembered Mike A. of Opeth is the the ex-vocalist for Katatonia (at least on B.M.D.), weird having both bands playing the same gig

FWIW Dream Theater also migrated to a more prog rock sound on their latest album, I suspect that has something to do with Portnoy leaving the band.
BTW - What is correct English, writing "Opeth doesn't stagnate" or "Opeth don't stagnate". Opeth is one singular band, but consist of many members.
