"Heritage" In-Studio Report

The members of Opeth were interviewed by Germany's Rock Hard magazine in the studio where they recorded their latest album, Heritage, for a DVD accompanying issue 291 of the magazine. In the video below, you can see guitarist/vocalist Mikael Åkerfeldt, guitarist Fredrik Åkesson and bassist Martin Lopez talking about the studio and the process of making Heritage, which was very different from the way they've recorded in the past (and very different from how most modern metal records are made, as Mikael makes clear).

Check out the video:
