Martin Axenrot Appears In Animal Rights Calendar

Opeth has issued the following update about their drummer Martin Axenrot appearing in an animal rights calendar:

"Djurens Rätt, Sweden's largest non-profit animal rights organization asked if Axe and his cat Max would be interested in being photographed for a very special calendar of Rock Stars and their pets. Axe being a big animal lover didn't hesitate one second which resulted in Max & Axe being Misters July!

"Members of Amon Amarth, Crucified Barbara, Dead by April, Dia Psalma, Hammerfall, Mando Diao, Millencolin, Motörhead, Sonic Syndicate, The Hives & The Soundtrack of Our Live all had their pics taken with their pets as well so if you want to see a slightly different side of your favourite rock band we suggest you order one of these beauties right away.

"Swedish fans can buy it here and if you live abroad you can go to this location (PayPal only). All profit goes straight into the important work these nice people at Djurens Rätt do."
