The highly anticipated but delayed first single from Opeth‘s upcoming album Pale Communion has made its way online! Who knows how it got here or how long it’ll be up before Roadrunner and Warner Media Group strike it down with mighty force, but get on it while you can. Listen to ‘Cusp of Eternity’ below.
Yes, the song is legitimate, and it has that old school prog rock/proto-metal feel to it that Heritage had. Make of that what you will; I know a lot of people fell off the Opeth bandwagon when that album dropped, but I enjoyed it as I do ‘Cusp of Eternity.’
Pale Communion will be out August 26th via Roadrunner. Expect pre-orders to pop up shortly.
