Opeth Begin Writing Material For Next Album

PitCam.TV conducted an interview with vocalist/guitarist  Mikael Åkerfeldt of Swedish progressive metallers  Opeth at this year's edition of the  Wacken Open Air  festival, which was held August 2-4 in Wacken, Germany. You can now watch the chat below.

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
