Asked whether Opeth has begun work on the follow-up to last year's "Heritage" album, Mikael replied, "I've been writing a little. I'm going on a trip soon - next week - on my own, actually, which I've never done before. I'm gonna bring the guitar and write some stuff, hopefully. But I think we're still touring, and we still have another European tour coming up in the fall. And that kind of prevents me from getting too into the work - the creative process. I'm gonna start writing more from real once we finish the tour. 'Cause I don't have much."
Opeth were recently featured in iGuitar Magazine's Issue 10 along with Eddie Van Halen. You can watch the full interview here.
