In 2011, Opeth released its tenth studio offering called Heritage, which is marked as its last recording with keyboardist Per Wiberg. He was replaced by Joakim Svalberg who then accompanied the group on its promotional Heritage Tour 2011-2012, in which they played shows through Europe, and North America. The band played with other acts such as Katatonia and Pain of Salvation, and went on to perform in other regions including Japan, Turkey, India, Greece, Sweden and South America. In early 2012, the band performed in Bangalore for the first time while still continuing the Summerstorm festival. The same year, Opeth performed with Mastodon on a tour of North America, headlining at specified concerts with support from Ghost.
Mikael Akerfeldt is the main songwriter, vocalist, guitarist and lyricist of Opeth, and is responsible for directing the band’s sound. At a very young age the artist was inspired by heavy metal bands from the likes of Morbid Angel, King Diamond, Celtic Frost, Black Sabbath, Death, Slayer, Iron Maiden and the most significant of all, Judas Priest. According to Akerfeldt the greatest metal album of all time is Sad Wings of Destiny. Before opening most of their shows, Akerfeldt performs Judas Priest’s Here Come the Tears. Upon discovering folk music and progressive rock in later year, where both the genres deeply impacted the group’s musical direction, Opeth began combining progressive rock with death metal. The band’s music is quite diverse in mixing elements from various genres within the same song at times, for instance combining solo piano bits with Eastern melodies, stoner rock sounds and ambient soundscapes all at once. This is a band that is fearless when it comes to being honest to their music. Grab some cheap Opeth tickets and make sure not to miss the maestros in their live act.
