Opeth Releases “Sorceress”

Opeth: SorceressSwedish progressive metal band Opeth has returned with its 12th full-length studio album, Sorceress.

Bassist Martín Méndez is the most stalwart band member, behind the band’s architect, Mikael Åkerfeldt. “I love this album, as does the whole band. I wrote the music during 5-6 months and we spent only 12 days recording it at Rockfield studios in Wales,” Åkerfeldt said. “It’s both fresh and old, both progressive and rehashed. Heavy and calm. Just the way we like it. Hopefully there’ll be others around the globe sharing this opinion. It was a joy to make it.”

Check out the track, “The Wilde Flowers” (first video) and the somewhat reminiscent of Jethro Tull, “Will O The Wisp” (second video):

Sorceress is available on CD, vinyl and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
