Subscribe to Loudwire on

Three years after releasing the polarizing ‘Heritage,’ Opeth have explored further into their prog side with ‘Pale Communion.’ We had the chance to sit down with Opeth frontman Mikael Akerfeldt and guitarist Fredrik Akesson to talk all about the new album along with a bunch of other topics.

In our exclusive interview with the Opeth duo, we talk about the continued lack of Akerfeldt’s guttural vocals on ‘Pale Communion,’ the concept of Lucifer as an influence, whether or not Opeth are still interested in creating extreme metal and much more.

Check out our in-depth interview with Mikael Akerfeldt and guitarist Fredrik Akesson above. And be sure to pick up ‘Pale Communion’ at iTunes.
