Deluxe 180gm double vinyl LP pressing. 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 know Opeth is a progressive metal band, but I do miss the heavier music and Mike's growls. Overall this is musically a good album, but it's no Deliverence. Read morePublished on Nov. 23 2011 by Pip Diggler
