Opeth guitarist Fredrik Åkesson was recently interviewed by Scott Hamilton from Rockfile Radio when the band hit Fort Lauderdale, Florida on their current tour with Katatonia. You can listen to the whole conversation above—he discusses the progression of the band's sound over time; his history as a musician (he started out as a violinist as a child); what he was doing before he joined Opeth; the band's plans for their next album, and when they're hoping to re-enter the studio; and much more.

Opeth's tour continues through May 26—find a show near you!
