Picked up the new album, pale communion on Friday. What a superb album this is. Anyone with a fondness for 70's flavoured progressive rock with a modern vibe played by musicians at the top of their game should definitely check this album out.
Previously Opeth blended death metal with progressive rock to create a unique sound however this is the second album they've released where you can see they've pretty much dropped the death metal completely and are forging ahead as a pure rock band with some very slight metal influence. No more growling vocals.
I will miss the more metal side to this band but they are so talented that I can still enjoy the great music. Looking forward to catching these boys live in October.
