Opeth bassist Martin Mendez was interviewed by Stormbringer when the band played Germany. He doesn't do nearly as many interviews as Mikael Åkerfeldt or Fredrik Åkesson, so this one is worth checking out.

Among other things, he says that while Heritage might have been the most difficult album he's ever recorded as a bassist, it was also the most fun.
