Opeth’s upcoming album, Sorceress, is scheduled to release September 30th. The guys have started a “Studio Report” series to satisfy us, while we patiently await new material, over the upcoming months. The first episode of this series can be seen below. We’re taken on a tour by Mikael Åkerfeldt (vocalist/guitarist) of the legendary Rockfield Studios in Wales, where a little band Queen recorded in the 70’s. In the video we get to hear some wailing guitar solos along with all of the instruments (and beer) used while making Sorceress. Check it out below!

Opeth will also embark on a fall headline tour all across North America.
