This sumptuously illustrated oral history presents Opeth’s unique tale, from their earliest days until the present, and all in glorious dark colour. Told in the first-person by Mikael, the band, their friends, former members and collaborators including designer Travis Smith, it is illustrated throughout with hundreds of previously unseen and rare photos, artworks and memorabilia.
Here, for the first time, is the true and complete story of Opeth, revealed in all its terrible and magnificent glory, and illuminated by early, personal, candid, live and studio photographs.
The book is available in two versions, both produced to the highest standards. The Classic edition is a stunning book in its own right, while the Signature edition box set is signed by Mikael, limited in number and comes with 3 numbered prints of the Pale Communion triptych by Travis Smith.
