More Info:

The forward-thinking Swedish titans, who seamlessly and fluidly combine metal, classic rock, prog, folk and free form jazz, continue the time-honored Opeth tradition on Watershed, their second album for Roadrunner Records. With this, their ninth effort, Opeth continue to shake things up, turn the corner and push the limits of their sound. And the results are breathtaking.


Prog-metal geeks have their arguments, just like superfans of any other subgenre, but most concur that Tool, Meshuggah and this Swedish five-piece are about as forward-thinking as anything the mainstream has to offer. Opeth leader Mikael √kerfeldt is well-known as a '70s vinyl enthusiast and manages to streamline his disparate influences into visceral metal suites that convey grandeur and danger rather than the self-indulgence that plagues so many of his peers.
