Likewise, Åkerfeldt doesn't mind making his audience have to work to get into Opeth's groove.

"You don't start your metal voyage with Opeth," he offers with a laugh. "Many people do, but it's probably better if you end up with Opeth. It's not an instant affection for many people. We play shows and we see people yawning and looking tired. If you're into brutal death metal and that's it, then maybe we're not the band for you — but if you're into music overall, I think there's a good chance you might find something in our music that you'd like."
