Opeth

Fredrik joins the Marshall family

Marshall is pleased to announce that Fredrik Akesson of Scandinavian prog-metal legends Opeth has returned to the Marshall family. Fredrik will now be using Marshall’s flagship 100 Watt JVM410 heads and 1960V 4x12” cabs.

His reason:- “Marshall has the bite, sustain and core and much more! No other amps cuts through like a Marshall.” – Fredrik Akesson

Together with Opeth frontman Mikael Akerfeldt’s Vintage Modern powered backline, this return to the black and gold means that every raging riff, experimental melody and face-melting solo on their up-coming “Heritage Hunter” tour will be Marshall driven.

Marshall’s Artist liaison manager, Paul Marshall, stated:-
“It is great to have both Fredrik and Mikael playing Marshall. I was disappointed when Fredrik left Marshall, but understood the reasons and we have always remained friends. It is always pleasing when an artist joins Marshall, but it is very special when we get to welcome a friend back into the family, especially one of Fredrik’s ability, and to see both Fredrik and Mikael playing Marshall – I can hardly wait to go to the first show.”

Opeth have been pushing the boundaries of their genre-spanning music for over two decades. Their current album – Heritage – continues this sonic exploration, fusing together elements of jazz, prog, classical and of course metal to create quite possibly their most accomplished work to date.
