This chat, which took place June 1, a few days after the band returned home following their final North American tour in support of Heritage, is in three parts; the first is above, the others are below. Mikael talks about how Heritage changed the way he listens to Opeth; re-creating the material live; gaining fans and losing fans; and much more. Watch the whole thing now!
