OPETH Drummer Interviewed In Paris

Inwë[b]zine conducted an interview with drummer Martin "Axe" Axenrot of Swedish progressive metallers OPETH before the band's April 3, 2010 concert in Paris, France. You can now watch the chat below.

OPETH commemorated its twentieth anniversary by playing six exclusive shows that took place across the globe in Stockholm, Sweden; Essen, Germany; Paris, France; London, U.K.; New York City and Los Angeles. At each show, OPETH performed two sets. The first set featured the band playing its breakthrough epic "Blackwater Park" in its entirety. The second set consisted of mixed material from the band's extensive catalog. The band played for over two hours at carefully selected venues in order to achieve an element of intimacy and exclusivity, and an overall "You had to be there" vibe!

01. The Leper Affinity
02. Bleak
03. Harvest
04. The Drapery Falls
05. Dirge For November
06. The Funeral Portrait
07. Patterns In The Ivy
