Always an unstoppable force for uniqueness amid a sea of generic swill, OPETH has been setting the rule book ablaze, and ploughing a uniquely progressive and exploratory furrow for over 25 years now. Neither conforming, nor exhibiting any desire to be restricted to a single genre, OPETH quite simply, has a time honoured tradition of blowing our minds with both class and forward thinking. All these years later, nothing and everything has changed once again with their most recent album, Sorceress.
Sorceress is the band’s first effort for Nuclear Blast via OPETH‘s imprint label Moderbolaget Records and was released in September 2016. For the recording, the group returned to the legendary Rockfield Studios in South Wales – also the birthplace of pivotal releases from Queen, Rush and Judas Priest – where the Swedes had tracked Pale Communion in 2014 with Tom Dalgety.
