BACKAsk Opeth Anything

Tyler Ravensong question for Opeth is

" As I listened to your music, I've noticed one particular repeating trend in songs that you write. Why is it that you consistently write into your songs 16-bar repeating phrases? The most memorable one to me is at the end of Harlequin Forest, and you end the track that way, but they come up in all sorts of other songs. Do you just find them to be a useful composition tool, or have you ever really even noticed your predilection for them at all? "
