For anyone who ahsn’t heard it yet, Opeth‘s new album Heritage is now available for streaming over at NPR. I’m pretty sure full album streams are the thing of the future – people want to try before they buy, and this allows them to do just that without torrenting. So no excuses for pirating any more? Perhaps, but I digress.
It takes a not unfamiliar path for Opeth by cutting all death metal-style vocals – they did a similar thing with 2003’s Damnation – but it seems to be pretty divisive. Jimmy already caught a listen and thoroughly enjoyed it (me too), but I guess now it’s up to you to make up your own minds.
Either way, you can get your grubby mits on your own copy come September 20th through Roadrunner Records.
