Opeth Launch First Webisode For 'Sorceress' Album


(Prog) Opeth have released the first studio webisode for their making of upcoming album Sorceress. The clip shows vocalist and guitarist Mikael Akerfeldt giving fans a mini-tour of Rockfield Studios in Wales, which is also where Queen and Judas Priest recorded.

He said of the forthcoming follow-up to 2014's Pale Communion: "I find it difficult to understand that we've been going on for 26 years, let alone that we've made 12 records now, all of which I am very proud of. Sorceress is no exception. I love this album, as does the whole band. I wrote the music during five-six months and we spent only 12 days recording it."

Akerfeldt adds: "It's extremely diverse. And if I may say so myself, extremely good. I feel the right to say that since I like to think I know this band better than anyone on the planet. Also, I always manage to detach myself from the record and listen as a fan.

"It's a fine little record. My favorite in our discography right now. It's both fresh and old, both progressive and rehashed. Heavy and calm. Just the way we like it." Watch the video here.
