Opeth Surprised By Fans Reaction To Sorceress Songs On Tour


(Prog) Opeth say fans have been demanding they play tracks from new album Sorceress while out on the road. They released their 12th record in September this year - with frontman Mikael Akerfeldt reporting that the reaction to the new tracks has been overwhelmingly positive.

He says in a video filmed by their label Nuclear Blast: "They go down really well. It's one of the first times I can remember that people on this tour are yelling out for songs the new record. Normally when you play live, they're yelling out for songs you did 15 years ago. It's nice. They've actually listened to the record and liked it."

Guitarist Fredrik Akesson credits the fact the label issued lyric videos for Will O' The Wisp and The Wilde Flowers before they hit the road with their rise in popularity.

Akesson says: "The new ones we play, you can definitely tell the people have listened to them and appreciate them." Read more here.
