Well Hello! Here is the first single from the new Opeth album Scorceress! I know there is at least ONE Opeth fan around here and i'm glad to be able
to share this.
As a fairly new Opeth fan i Love the newer, "post growly vocal" sound... Heritage and Pale Communion are amazingly complex albums with all the soul
and evil of modern metal, yet they are played mostly clean, and with little to zero growls. Right up my alley.
Don't get me wrong i love the older stuff, Still Life is excellent. Ghost of Perdition mat be my favorite example of the dynamic of loud growls
mellow clean vocals..
ANYWHO i know this is a band people either love or hate but i think it's a band that old progressive rock dudes and metal heads can come together
I saw a recent intrview with Adkerfelt and he made a comment about how if you just add distortion and change the vocals to growls, Communion and
Heritage a are pretty much the same as everything else. He also mentioned having no fear musically, which i think is what keeps them fresh.
Also i am a big Steven Wilson fan and once they started hanging out I honestly think they both got better in some ways..
Glad you appreciate, I have my tickets for the upcoming Detroit show and it will be my first Opeth show! Can't wait.
