Product Description

2011 album from the Swedish Metal band. Opeth's roots in the doom-laden shade of occult-infused Scandinavian Death Metal and dark romanticism are undeniable and will never elicit apology. But the transcendent emotional and melodic heights achieved on Heritage marks a new chapter in the storied quintet's career. Band leader, singer, guitarist, songwriter and long-running consistent member Mikael kerfeldt has reshaped the pathway forward for his artistic vehicle without sacrificing the hard won spiritualism of previous endeavors. This masterwork from the Stockholm, Sweden based virtuoso musicians is a mind-boggling dense maze of tempo shifts, off-time signatures, percussive experimentation and warped rhythms. It is all expertly melded together by a myriad range of emotional outpouring and breezy melodic optimism which soars above the songs like a woodland spirit surveying its forest. There are multiple hints of darkness but Heritage moves the band forward into broader dimensions.

I didn't really know what to expect when I popped this in, so I was slightly caught off guard with the style direction that Opeth has taken with this album.

The first listen through didn't justify this album's complexities and little details. You really have to turn up the volume to appreciate it. Now that I've gone through the album a few more times, I can say that although this may not seem entirely Opeth at times, their core is still very evident.

Opeth usually takes a "take it or leave it" approach to their music, and I think this album, with all its jazz and blues origins, is just an example of the fact that Opeth simply enjoys creating and experimenting with music. It just to happens that we can listen to their creative efforts come together on an album.

Heritage is a mature album written by a band who has inspired me since their inception. I'm one of the rare few fans who had realized their importance and significance during the Orchid/Morningrise era. I can also admit to losing a significant amount of interest with Ghost Reveries and Watershed. The heavy parts on those albums seemed forced and much too formulaic for my tastes.
I was skeptical when purchasing Heritage. I only wanted it to continue my Opeth vinyl collection as I felt the band, with all of the member changes and arrogance attached to the lead song writer's work, had long since expired.
This is an album that doesn't grab you immediately. Perhaps it never will if you're expecting death metal vocals or heavy guitar melodies.
It's a mature album written as an homage to all progressive albums of the past.
There are elements of Yes, Deep Purple, King Crimson, and Jethro Tull that reign apparent throughout this record. The cleaner guitar parts sound reminiscent of Knopler's best work and the overall composition is very Brahms.
I know that it's a long stretch to compare a modern day rock quintet to the likes of Brahms but if you give the entire piece a listen as a whole I'm sure it will be, at the least, a respectable comparison.
The continuation of the theme that god is surely dead, which is a very Nietzche approach to a progressive album, is remarkable and to me the only time in this band's career where they have successfully recorded a concept for our listening pleasure. I know there have been other albums that have followed the "concept album" motif. They just weren't as seamless as this.
The subtle ambiences between songs are beautiful and as a complete work of art astounding.

This product made it to me within the Time frame I was given, which is rare for me. I was not broken or scratched, but it was not wrapped in cellophane. So I, not 100% sure it was new.
Generally speaking I am satisfied.

Very disapointing release when listened to as an Opeth release. However, its a pretty great album if you take have no preconceived ideas. If you like Steve Wilson, you'll probably enjoy this album. If you want an Opeth, look else where - Katatonia.

Opeth has always had a wide range of musical approaches, and their newest album is no exception. Although this album doesn't scream "Death Metal", it is sure to please any true fan of Opeth.
