OPETH's 25th-anniversary commemorative book, "Book Of Opeth", will arrive on April 15 via U.K.'s Rocket 88 publishers. The book contains never-before-seen photos of the band's early days with full commentary from guitarist/vocalist Mikael Åkerfeldt, OPETH's original guitar player Peter Lindgren as well as former and current bandmembers. The book spans the gamut of the band's colorful, rich twenty-five-year career, paying close attention to detail from page one.
Every copy of the first 4,000 books come with a vinyl pressing with acoustic versions of "Atonement" and "Demon Of The Fall", which will only be available in the "Book Of Opeth". The strictly limited edition, all numbered and signed by Mikael also includes three fine art prints by OPETH sleeve designer Travis Smith.
OPETH's eleventh studio album, "Pale Communion", sold around 13,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 19 on The Billboard 200 chart.
"Pale Communion" was released on August 26, 2014 via Roadrunner Records. The cover artwork was once again created by Travis Smith — with art direction by guitarist/vocalist Mikael Åkerfeldt. The CD was produced by Åkerfeldt and mixed by longtime collaborator and PORCUPINE TREE frontman/guitarist Steven Wilson.
