Our good friend and very talented writer Rick Florino had a nice chat with frontman Mikael Akerfeldt of Opeth.

"We're just hanging out in a garage right now," laughs the singer. "It's pretty nice up here though. We've been here a bunch of times, but I've never really had a look around. We've always been hanging out inside of the bus or at the venue. We went for a walk around Seattle today. It's not really sunny out, but the weather was good for a walk, definitely."
