OPETH: MIKAEL AKERFELDT INTERVIEW BY METAL MARK!

opeth1

Mikael Åkerfeldt needs no introduction to the metal world. Over the past twenty years Opeth has released classic album after classic album, and Mikael has progressed to legendary status for his songwriting and vocal skills. After the release of their tenth album, “Heritage“, the band found a new style, that may be a bit more melodic, but still carries the powerful presence that we’ve all come to know and love. The band is currently on their last North American tour for the record and then it’s back into writing mode for the Swedish metal icons. As the eleventh record is still a long way from being done, there is no doubt that it will just be another amazing record to add to their already impressive collection.

As for their live show, well it’s still flawless. I have now seen Opeth ten times in my lifetime, and they just get better and better. It’s truly a testament to hard work and the absolute love of their music! Before their recent set at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg, I had the absolute honor of talking with Mikael about the current tour, the future material, the band’s legacy and even Black Sabbath‘s new tunes! Enjoy the chat below!
