Austria's Mulatschag TV conducted an interview with guitarist/vocalist Mikael kerfeldt of Swedish progressive metallers OPETH when the band performed at the Two Days A Week festival in Wiesen, Austria on September 2. You can now watch the chat below.
The September 2011 issue of Germany's Rock Hard magazine includes a big cover story and world-exclusive live CD by OPETH that won't be available at record stores. "The Devil's Orchard - Live At Rock Hard Festival" is a five-song, 50-minute effort which is described as "an outstanding recording made in 2009" when the band stunned the audience with an awesome performance in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. The CD also includes "The Devil's Orchard", the first single from OPETH's long-awaited new studio album, "Heritage".
"Heritage" is scheduled for release on September 20 (one day earlier internationally) via Roadrunner Records. The CD was produced by the band's mainman, Mikael kerfeldt, and was recorded earlier this year at Atlantis studios (formerly Metronome studios) in Stockholm. Mixing duties were handled by Steven Wilson (PORCUPINE TREE) and kerfeldt. Longtime collaborator Travis Smith also worked with kerfeldt to create, design and execute the album's artwork.
