has posted a 20-minute interview with Fredrik Åkesson, and it's well worth watching in full. He discusses how his own playing has evolved over the course of four and a half years with the band; whether he ever disagrees with Mikael Åkerfeldt about how a solo should go; the dynamic between bandmembers overall; co-writing the song "Pyre" (a B-side from the band's latest album, Heritage); and much more. Watch it above now!
