Recently, Opeth’s Mikael Åkerfeldt and Fredrik Åkesson stopped by NJ’s famed Vintage Vinyl store. Normally musicians stop by the record shop for meet and greets with fans, but the Swedish metal musicians were simply there to buy some music. And thanks to Roadrunner Records, we can be creepers and watch Åkerfeldt and Åkesson looking through albums.
It’s actually really cool to see what albums the two are searching for, and to hear how much they love collecting vinyl records and CDs. It reminded us of how excited we ourselves are to pick up Opeth’s new album Heritage (oh September 20, could you please come sooner!).
