An Opethian Dream

Inspired by TheSpaceMan.
1Opeth
My Arms, Your Hearse


I'm asleep. I'm stood in the middle of a desolate forest (presumably a Harlequin one) and I'm looking through the trees. Suddenly, some guy comes running towards me shouting "Hey dude, have you heard the news?! Opeth are streaming their new album!"
2Opeth
Morningrise


Confused, I turn round and say "But the album isn't released for another 2 months!" Somehow, the dude pulls a laptop out his back pocket and begins to play the stream to me.
3Opeth
Ghost Reveries


'Cusp of Eternity' kicks in with a Heritage like lead, with the album art revolving slowly. The art depicted Mikael stood in what seemed to look like the dark backdrop of a forest, with a shiny light above his head. Bear in mind, there were multiple forms of Mikael scattered all over the screen.
4Opeth
Orchid


After the Heritage like lead, a soothing wind-chime like sounds begin to play. Out of absolutely nowhere, Mikael kicks in SCREAMING! Bellowing the words 'THE SCREAAAAAAAAAMS ARE BACCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKK!'
5Opeth
Still Life


Instantly, I'm transferred to a busy high street in the middle of Liverpoool, screaming in peoples faces "THE FUCKING SCREAMS ARE BACK!" Needless to say, many of them were displeased and contacted the nearest policeman.
6Opeth
Heritage


Next thing I know, the policeman walks over with a face I can't quite make out. He continues with his face down until he is literally stood two inches away from my face.
7Opeth
Watershed


He lifted his hat up and, with a grin, revealed himself...it was MIKAEL FUCKING AKERFELDT!!!!
8Opeth
Blackwater Park


In a comedic tone, Mikael uttered "So, what do you think of the new record?" Unable to speak, I just nodded in absolute terror/awe. Working up the courage, I said "Ye, its fucking amazing dude but...why are you a policeman in Liverpool?"
9Opeth
Deliverance


He chuckled, and uttered "I'm Mikael Akerfeldt, I am here there and everywhere". Next thing I know, Mikael is gone and I'm stood in line at the local HMV music store.
10Opeth
Damnation


I have a copy of 'Pale Communion' in hand as I approach the counter. As I walk towards the counter in disbelief as to what just happened, he was there again. Mikael Akerfeldt serving me in the store!
11Opeth
Lamentations


He took the CD off me and said "Thanks for the support James, catch you in Manchester on our upcoming tour".
12Opeth
Burden


Without warning, I am then awoken from my slumber by my Mum. Needless to say, I was fucking pissed...
13Opeth
Apostle in Triumph
