Did you know Opeth guitarist Fredrik Akesson spoke French? Neither did we; we suspect this interview may have been translated after the fact. Whatever the case may be, if you can read French and feel like getting Fredrik's thoughts on the upcoming Opeth album Heritage, head on over to MusikUniverse.net and check it out! (And remember, there's always Google Translate.)

Heritage will be in record stores September 20, but you can pre-order the deluxe version, which includes the album as a CD/DVD set as well as on double vinyl, a 7" with two bonus tracks, a litho print of the album cover, and a booklet with exclusive photos and other art, at this link.
