    This sounds absolutely brilliant. Especially love the heavier guitar sound/tone and Mikael's vocals!

    Awesome lyric video.
    I am not super impressed with the lyrics themselves, however. They seem to be a bit on the nose.
    On the other side I really love how Mikael is sounding.

    Opeth have released a second track from Sorceress, "Will O The Wisp."



    What a beautiful track. It's got a real folky vibe going on that I really dig.

    Wow.

    It took me a few listens to get into Sorceress, the riff didn't really click with me at first, but Will O The Wisp is a different beast entirely. Definitely love at first sight (first hearing? :lol:). I have such a soft spot for acoustic, folky ballads so this is right up my alley. I absolutely love how simple, straight forward and to the point it is compared to Pale Communion and especially Heritage. I love those albums in their own right, but there's always something special about a simple arrangement done just right. Mikael's unique voice, the woodwind section that Opeth always use so well, and the absolutely beautiful solo really make this more than just a generic acoustic guitar based track. Really reminds me of 'Harvest', with a little dash of 'River'. I'm extremely happy with this.

    I figure we'll just make this thread the "All Things Opeth" thread.

    So they have a new live album coming out, "Garden of the Titans - Live at Red Rocks", November 2nd.


    Lovely mix there.

    Also, Fredrik said a couple of months back that Mikael had been writing since January, they have about 12 new songs, are aiming to write up to 15, and are hoping to get the new album out early next year.:bounce:

    That mix is incredible. Hyped as fuck. Been waiting for another live record from them for a while now.
