Roadrunner Records recently caught with bassist Martín Méndez of Swedish progressive metallers OPETH for an exclusive interview. Check it out below.
OPETH celebrated “Record Store Day” with a free acoustic performance and signing on April 20 at Newbury Comics in Leominster, Massachusetts.
OPETH‘s current 30-plus-city tour kicked off on April 18 in Buffalo and is taking the band throughout North America.
On April 20, OPETH made a stop to headline alongside ANTHRAX, HATEBREED and SUICIDAL TENDENCIES at the New England Metal Hardcore Festival.
Released September 20, 2011, OPETH‘s latest album, “Heritage”, garnered rave reviews from everyone from Rolling Stone, who called the CD “a career record that reimagines prog as actual rock ‘n’ roll,” to Pitchfork saying “a pretty, well-thought-out collection” to NPR who called it “equally vast, thoughtful and heavy.”
“Heritage” sold 19,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 19 on The Billboard 200 chart.
