Opeth Go Behind The Scenes Of Historic Gig


(Prog) Opeth have shared a behind-the-scenes promo for their biggest ever UK headline show at London's SSE Wembley Arena. The video shows the Swedish band sound-checking, meeting fans backstage and receiving plaques from venue bosses to mark their milestone performance last month.

Frontman Mikael Akerfeldt recently reported that the crowd's reaction to their new album Sorceress has been overwhelmingly positive on tour. He'd previously admitted that Opeth deal with a lot of criticism for moving away from the extreme, heavy-metal sound of their earlier years.

Last month he said: "If we would have never changed, and kept all the ingredients from the first album intact and were still doing that 20-odd years later, I'm not sure if people would be any happier.

"That's not even an issue, because that's not going to happen. Because the essence of Opeth isn't death-metal vocals. The essence of Opeth is change."

But Akerfeldt said last week that "The new songs go down really well." Read more and watch the video here.
