Opeth Launch Their Own Label Imprint, New Album Due This Year


Opeth have formed their own label imprint via Nuclear Blast Entertainment and will release their new album “Sorceress” through it later this year. The label venture has been called Moderbolaget Records. Band frontman/guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt commented:

“We’re happy to confirm that we have indeed signed a deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment and will be putting out our 12th studio album Sorceress via our own imprint, Moderbolaget Records.” The decision was made in Markus Staiger’s [Nuclear Blast owner] ridiculously potent Porsche going at 150 mph somewhere in the south of Germany. We’re happy to be part of the NB team and look forward to a fruitful relationship.”
