[...] The decision was made in Markus Staiger (Nuclear Blast kingpin) ridiculously potent Porsche going at 150 mph somewhere in the south of Germany. We're happy to be part of the NB team and look forward to a fruitful relationship.”
Label owner Markus Staiger adds: “The band have become one of the most challenging artists in rock music today. It is not often that we get to work with musicians of their caliber and I’m thrilled to have such a unique genre-leader on the label. The future for OPETH and the Nuclear Blast looks very bright.”
Currently, the Band is still in the Studio, in order not to miss the upcoming Album along with Tom Dalgety to the final touches. We are excited to see what fruits will bear this cooperation.
