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.
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.
Aunque tengo esta obra en CD con este gran grupo dictando pautas de buen rock, esta vez progresivo, nunca esta de mas un lindo vinilo con una estupenda caratula de buen arte, viva el vinilo y grande Opeth
