Mikael Åkerfeldt was recently interviewed in relation to a Heavy metal marathon aired on Swedish national television. The Sam Dunn produced "Metal evolution" episodes were aired as a marthon showcase on October 13th. Since the series itself had left out the late 80's/early 90's Death metal revolution emerging from Stockholm/Sweden, Mikael was brought in to shed some light on the matter. Watch the clip of Mikael discussing bands like Mefisto, Entombed, Therion and Dismember at http://www.svtplay.se/video/35
