Opeth are from Sweden, but they tour all over the world, which means they frequently have to handle band business - whether negotiating with promoters or talking to fans - in a language not their own. In a spirit of cross-cultural cooperation, guitarist Fredrik Åkesson recently sat down with us to translate some useful phrases, covering situations many touring bands encounter, into Swedish, for the next time foreign acts come through his homeland. Enjoy!

Opeth are on the road in North America right now, promoting their latest album Heritage. Visit our tour page to find a show near you.
