Opeth's Sorceress Their Most Fun And Interesting Album


(Prog) Opeth bassist Martin Mendez says their 12th album Sorceress was the "most fun" and "interesting" to record. The band are set to launch the follow-up to 2014's Pale Communion on September 30. Frontman Mikael Akerfeldt recently said it was inspired by "the negative aspects of love." He also revealed the band had recorded it in 12 days after he'd spent six months writing it.

In an official trailer video for the album, Mendez says: "This has been personally the most interesting recording with Opeth ever - the most fun, most quick for my part. I recorded bass together with the drums in three days. It's been great.

He adds: "Usually the process is kind of similar as on the last few records. Mikael recorded the demos at home, then we get the demos, and we next get together for about two weeks and rehearse on the demos. That's pretty much the process - then we record everything."
