OPETH Featured on Cover of DECIBEL Magazine

According to a press release this morning, the September 2011 issue of DECIBEL features Opeth’s Mikael Akerfeldt on the cover, with a preview of the band’s latest opus, Heritage, as the accompanying feature . Heritage is out September 20th and Decibel goes deep.

We’re proud to grant Opeth their third Decibel cover story over the past seven years,” said Decibel editor-in-chief Albert Mudrian. “Few, if any, bands are more deserving of such consistent praise.”

Mikael A. says that Heritage is “a reaction against the state of heavy metal music, which we’ve been a very big part of for many years now. It’s a reaction to the production of heavy metal records. And with that, it’s a reaction to the Internet, the fucking waves of information that everybody seems to need.”

Opeth will also hit the road on tour next month in support of Heritage.
