If you've never seen Opeth before, it's like nothing else you've ever seen. The sheer diversity in their sound is what makes their shows a true spectacle – flitting between prog to full-on metal in the blink of an eye.
We recently caught up with frontman Mikael Akerfeldt on the London leg of the tour to find out just how he condenses eleven albums into one cohesive setlist. Watch below:
And he's done a pretty good job, this is what the Manchester crowd bore witness to:
Eternal Rains Will Come
Cusp of Eternity
The Devil's Orchard
The Lotus Eater
The Grand Conjuration
You can listen to the Golden God himself Mikael Akerfeldt chatting to Hammer Ed-In-Chief on the Metal Hammer Radio Show here.
