New Sound : Opeth’s Heritage

The music of Opeth has evolved since day one. Heritage, their tenth opus, literally and figuratively translate the groovy-rock that Mikael Akerfeld, lead guitarist/singer, has been listening since four to five years. Prog Rock masters like Camel, Genesis and 1970’s-1980’s bands like Scorpions, Judas Priests, Alice Cooper and many more are the influences felt while listening to this album. Anyhow, Opeth manage to still hold its own edge without copying their heritage. Don’t look for growls here, there aren’t any. Just beautiful guitars, clean vocals, progressive rhythms, and a very organic natural feeling to top it all. Heritage is an album that will transcend time and it might be too early to say this but anyway I will, it is a masterpiece.
