Opeth Interview

Opeth's latest record Heritage led to a little bit of a turmoil in the metal community. More jazz, more prog and - that's what a lot of people disliked most - no growls anymore.

So when the swedish death metal prog rockers came to vienna, we took the chance and had a little chat with their mainman: Mikael Åkerfeldt.

We talked about Mikael's love of the 60s and the 70s, Opeth's musical heritage and much more.

After having talked to him, I came to the conclusion that Mikael is a hippie - a very peaceful, obliging person. The only difference is, that he's still into Death Metal. So let's just call him a Death Metal Hippie.

Part 1

Part 2

After our talk, Opeth played a phenomenal set - with no growls at all. The band's apperance, the light-show, the production and, of course, the music, almost made me feel like it actually was the 70s.

If you get the chance to witness Opeth, you should do so - you won't be disappointed.
