As you may know Opeth have been hard at work these past few years to put together a very nice and informative coffee table style biography for release later this year and we're pleased to announce that the book is now available for pre-order. More details on how to sign up found here; opethbook.com
Opeth are confirmed to play Getaway Rock Festival in Gävle, Sweden which takes place on 7-9 August 2014.

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
Clip is in Swedish. Sorry!
Support for this tour will be announced shortly.
