The Swedish progressive metal band Opeth, announced that in honor of their 25th anniversary they are going to publish a book about the band’s history. The book contains interview with both actual and former band members, never seen pictures of their life on the road and on studio. Although there’s not an official release date yet, the band and the publisher in charge, Rocket 88, expect the book to be out this year.
The band said:
To celebrate their 25th anniversary Opeth have teamed up with book publisher Rocket 88 to work on the official Opeth book.
In this amazing book the band will tell you their full story for the first time – the good, the bad, the ugly – in their own words, with a little help from former members, label bosses, management, producers, and anyone else that’s been there for the key moments in the band’s illustrious career.
Opeth’s long and winding story will be illustrated throughout with rare and unseen images of life on the road, working in the studio, and other unique glimpses into the world of Opeth.
