Opeth celebrate 25 years with book

Posted by on April 14, 2016

opethbookOpeth have accomplished a lot over their quarter century as a band. Most of all, there’s their music, which found the Swedish band transitioning from a progressive black metal band to a mostly-acoustic 70’s influenced progressive band and everywhere in between. They’ve got their own beer, and as of tomorrow, they’ve got their own book. Book of Opeth is a 25th anniversary commemorative book released tomorrow in the U.K. via Rocket 88 Publishers. The book is told in the first person via frontman Mikael Akerfeldt, current and former members of the band and associates of the band, featuring artwork, photos and more. Also, if you’re one of the first 4,000 people to pick the book up, you’ll get a 7″ featuring acoustic versions of “Atonement” and “Demon of the Fall,” available only via the book. There’s also a “signature” edition of the book limited to 500 and signed and numbered by Akerfeldt, also containing three limited eidtion prints by artist Travis Smith. You can order the less pricey “classic” edition (which still comes with the vinyl) here. Here’s Akerfeldt talking about the book.
