September 25, 2011, 7 years ago
OPETH's new album, Heritage, has landed at the #22 position on the Official UK Top 40 albums and #1 on the UK Top 40 Rock Albums. The band's new video, for the track 'The Devil's Orchard', can be seen below:
According to a press release, Opeth's roots in the doom-laden shade of occult-infused Scandinavian death metal and dark romanticism are undeniable and will never elicit apology. But the transcendent emotional and melodic heights achieved on the brilliantly titled tenth full length album, Heritage, marks a new chapter in the storied quintet's career. Band leader, singer, guitarist, songwriter and long-running consistent member Mikael Åkerfeldt has reshaped the pathway forward for his artistic vehicle without sacrificing the hard won spiritualism of previous endeavours.
