OPETH: Interview With Keyboardist PER WIBERG To Air Tonight

An interview with OPETH keyboardist Per Wiberg will air tonight on University Radio York 1350AM in York, England. In the interview, Per discusses his time in the band, the stories behind recording of albums such as "Ghost Reveries", "Deliverance" and "Damnation", tour stories and the band's decision to sign with Roadrunner Records in 2005. The program, which will air between 10:00 p.m. and midnight (local time), can be heard online via a free webstream service at this location.

OPETH's new album, "Ghost Reveries", is available now on Roadrunner Records. The band utilized the services of STRAPPING YOUNG LAD drummer Gene Hoglan during the bulk of this summer's Sounds of the Underground tour after the group's regular skinsman, Martin Lopez, went back to Sweden for treatment of a rare blood disorder he's had for most of his life. The group have since enlisted Martin Axenrot (BLOODBATH, WITCHERY, NIFELHEIM) to take over Lopez' duties until he's fully recovered.
