Metal Mark of SkullsNBones.com conducted an interview with guitarist/vocalist Mikael Åkerfeldt of Swedish progressive metallers OPETH prior to the band’s April 27 at Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. You can now watch the chat below.
OPETH has returned to North America in support of their most recent studio album, “Heritage”. Released September 20, 2011, it garnered rave reviews from everyone from Rolling Stone, who called the album “a career record that reimagines prog as actual rock ‘n’ roll,” to Pitchfork saying “a pretty, well-thought-out collection” to NPR who called it “equally vast, thoughtful and heavy.” The tour kicked off on April 18 in Buffalo and is taking the band throughout North America over the course of more than 30 dates.
OPETH‘s April 28 show in Clifton Park, New York will see PORCUPINE TREE‘s Steven Wilson, the STORM CORROSION collaborator and friend of OPETH‘s mainman, Mikael Åkerfeldt, join OPETH for a special evening that is not to be missed. There will also be two rare and intimate evenings with OPETH planned for Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn on April 29 and The Roxy in West Hollywood on May 24. These shows will allow fans the unique opportunity to experience OPETH like never before.
