Frederik Akesson from Scandinavian band Opeth has returned to the Marshall roster of artists.
While frontman Mikael Akerfeldt uses a Vintage Modern-powered backline, Akesson will now be using Marshall’s flagship 100 Watt JVM410 heads and 1960V 4x12” cabs. He commented: “Marshall has the bite, sustain and core and much more! No other amps cuts through like a Marshall.”
Marshall’s artist liaison manager, Paul Marshall, added: “It is great to have both Fredrik and Mikael playing Marshall. I was disappointed when Fredrik left Marshall, but understood the reasons and we have always remained friends. It is always pleasing when an artist joins Marshall, but it is very special when we get to welcome a friend back into the family, especially one of Fredrik’s ability, and to see both Fredrik and Mikael playing Marshall – I can hardly wait to go to the first show.”
Opeth kicked off their Hertage Hunter world tour at the Summerstorm Festival, Bangalore, India on the 5th February.
