PitCam.TV conducted an interview withvocalist/guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt ofSwedish progressive metallers Opeth at thisyear's edition of the Wacken OpenAir festival,which was held August 2-4 in Wacken, Germany. You can now watch thechat below.
Asked whether Opeth has begun work onthe 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 Ithink we're still touring, and we still have another European tourcoming up in the fall. And that kind of prevents me from gettingtoo into the work - the creative process. I'm gonna start writingmore from real once we finish the tour. 'Cause I don't havemuch."
Opeth were recently featured in iGuitar Magazine's Issue 10along with Eddie Van Halen. You can watch the full interview here.
