Not two minutes go by since Jimmy posted his Decibel rimjob, extolling the virtues of the new non-death metal album from legendary Swedish death metal band Opeth, when lo and behold a brand new song pops up. God bless you, internets!
We’ve known for a while that Heritage is going to have all clean vocals. Chris Dick’s article confirms that it’s still going to be scarier than finding out the Jabberwocky is your new girlfriend’s dad. We know that it’s going to be in the vein of 70s prog. You’ve heard that, but have you heard this?
Ho yes! The 70s influence is obvious. It’s definitely Opeth, but it’s a fresh new take. This version is a radio rip, so the quality might not be the best, but it’s still new Opeth!
It sounds very spacey and awesome – I like the ambience and the progression. Normally I’m a fan of the more brutal side of Opeth, but I can definitely dig this. Now I’m really pumped for Heritage, which will come out 16th September on Roadrunner Records.
