    Anyone know how old the members of Opeth are? I'm just curious because I really have no fricking clue...at times I think Mikael looks really young...but then he looks really old. Thanks ahead of time for the info...if anyone has got it!

    i think mikael is 30
    i think peter is a year older
    and the martins are pretty young, like mid 20s

    go to the official site, and look at their profiles, it has their birthdays

    Mikael just turned 29 last week or something. Peter is 30, and the Martins are both 25, I believe.

    Does anybody else find it weird that the bass player and the drummer are both named Martin, are both Spanish guys from Sweden, and are both pretty much the same exact age(Within 2 months of each other)?

    When we saw Opeth live, my man thought Mikael was in his late 30s. I said no way he's like 28.

    yes, dude they relocated to Sweden, I think before coming to Opeth both played for an Uruguayan band Requiem Aeternam. Martin Lopez also played for Amon Amarth on "once sent from the golden hall" after relocating to Sweden...
