The 10 records that changed Opeth frontman Mikael Akerfeldt's life

The Beatles, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden: The albums that soundtracked Mikael Akerfeldt's life

The first album I bought was…

Iron Maiden - The Number Of The Beast [EMI, 1982]

“I was eight years old and on a mission to buy a metal record one day, and it just happened to be Maiden. It’s become one of the most important records in my life. I don’t even have to listen to it anymore; I hear it in my head. It’s in my DNA.”
