We are running our special once again today where you get two for the price of one this week and we have some good ones for you. On the metal side of things for the single of the week, we have a brand new track from Swedish metal legends Opeth as they prepare to release their 12TH studio album Sorceress which is the follow up to 2014’s Pale Communion. The album is expected to drop on September 30TH and to help pass the time until then, the band has unleashed the title track for everyone to hear and we have it here. The band continues to explore their love for Prog rock with this track and singer Mikael Akerfeldt talked about it saying, “I find that once again we’ve taken a step forward. Or sideways, Or backwards. Somewhere!? It’s different! It’s extremely diverse. And if I may say so myself, extremely good. I feel the right to say that since I like to think I know this band better than anyone on the planet. Also, I always manage to detach myself from the record and listen as a fan.” He adds about the record overall, “It’s a fine little record. My favorite in our discography right now. Of course. That’s how it should be, right? 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. A f—ing joy to record it, and a sheer joy listening to it. So there you have it.” Check it out below:
