Excuses

Why do people make excuses for bands releasing controversial material by saying they are "maturing," or that it is all about the "growls" for people who don't like the change? Neither are true. Opeth released "Watershed" and "Damnation" years ago, and nobody complained. They were beautiful albums, with a lot of clean vocals that sounded great. As far as maturing; their old albums like "Orchid," "Morningrise," "Still Life," and "Blackwater Park," are about as complex as music gets. Ingenious arrangements that could evoke sadness, despondency, happiness, anger and hope. All backed up by insanely complicated guitar riffs that were written with poetic lyrics. That is maturity in a nutshell. The problem with Opeth, for many fans, came with "Heritage," and "Pale Communion." It's not that they were Prog, they were Prog JAZZ! And in the opinion of many, myself included, they were terrible albums. "Pale Communion" was much more palatable than "Heritage," but there was still something missing. Instead of growing, and adding to their sound, Opeth literally redefined themselves. Not good, and many fans hated it. But they were dismissed by those who like anything a band puts out no matter what it sounds like, for just "not getting it." After all, "real fans" support the artist's creative endeavors, no matter what it sounds like, right? Real fans are "enlightened." Wrong. Anyway, with this album, it sounds as though they are returning to their older sound, albeit with a more Prog oriented focus. "Sorceress" starts out with a Gojira inspired riff, and then blossoms into a beautifully written song with some crunch to it. "Will O' the Wisp" is an ethereal acoustic track that evokes their older material, while showcasing a real talent for the softer side of metal without sounding cheesy. Great arrangements in both songs. I like what I hear so far, and I'm looking forward to the album.

No Growls, No Problem

The first released Song Sorceress from their soon to be released album...Sorceress is going to be divisive. I'm on the side of liking this new sound and if the album is like this, itll be great. Yes the vocals on this song don't have the old Opeth growls but we will see if that is the case for the whole album. Either way, the music is still very pychedelic/Prog Rock sounding but there are some very crunching heavy guitar parts with amazing solos. I got this pre ordered already . Looking forward to it.

Ghostship

Opth has matured, musically and deep within their lyrics, either way they choose to go, be it growl or psychadelic rock ways, they have matured into a fine group of extremely talented and dedicated MUSICIANS, good job in advance Opeth.

Biography

Formed: 1990 in Stockholm, Sweden

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Brought together in Stockholm by guitarists Peter Lindgren and Mikael Åkerfeldt in 1990, Opeth added progressive influences and acoustic instrumentation to their brand of Swedish death metal. As the group progressed, it was very common for an Opeth live set to fly in several different musical directions -- and an average song lasted no less than ten minutes. Impressed by their originality, Candlelight Records released their debut full-length in 1995, which was titled Orchid, and featured a rhythm...
