Time to accept that Opeth is not metal anymore

And dare I say it’s absolutely ok? Follow-up to Pale Communion which was a follow-up to Heritage, it’s clear that this is Opeth’s new direction. I did enjoy this album more than Pale Communion, which seemed too similar to Heritage. This one feels more like Damnation, and that’s a good thing since Damnation is one of my favorite Opeth albums. I’d recommend it for old fans and new fans alike, this is great music.

And as a side note, this album has a few live songs from their past stuff. And after hearing those songs, I now think why Mikael is staying away from growling. He’s clearly struggling with his growls on the live version of Drapery Falls. Hey, the guy is in his mid 40’s now so it’s understandable if he rather protect his clean voice by not growling.

Best Progressive Rock Album by Opeth

As someone who is a hardcore fan of Opeth, I too was very disappointed when Heritage came out as I hold Still Life and Morningrise close to my heart. But I have to say, over some time if you really give these three post-transitional albums a listen, they tend to grow on you. I was actually pleasantly surprised when Sorceress came out, it is probably the most metal album since heritage. Strange Brew Sorceress and Wilde Flowers are the highlights in my opinion.

Alice In Chains Anyone?!

First album I've ever bought from these guys. Courtesy of Lost in Vegas' Sourceress review. I am very interested in getting into their whole catalog, but, as a metalhead, I never bought into their sound. I know its tough when your favaorite band changes directions...so many to mention, but for me, its opened me to Opeth. Sounds a TON like "Yes" and Alice in Chains. They are obviously phenomenal musicians.
