John Robb in conversation withOpeth.
The Swedish metal band play complex and dark music, a mixture of neo classical, folk and the dark, heavy stuff. Formed in 1990 the group has been through several personnel changes, singer, guitarist, with Michael being the consistent member.
Opeth’s music is complex but never boring, incorporating progressive, folk, blues, classical and jazz influences into their usually lengthy compositions. Songs will include acoustic guitar passages and strong dynamic shifts, as well as both death growls and clean vocals.
