Video Blog #4 – A roller coaster ride with OPETH


Swedish progressive metal legends OPETH are set to release »Garden of the Titans: Live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre« on 2nd November via Moderbolaget Records / Nuclear Blast. This historic show in the band’s career was captured for the DVD, Blu-Ray and vinyl formats during their set on 11th May 2017 at the world renowned »Garden of the Titans: Live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre« in Denver, CO. In the 4th video blog that the band releases today, you can witness a historical moment: After 20 years of failed attempts, Mikael Åkerfeldt finally convinces bassist Martin Mendez to join him on a roller coaster ride along with guitarist Fredrik Åkesson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9TISS2kDeU

Always an unstoppable force for uniqueness amid a sea of generic swill, OPETH has been setting the rulebook ablaze, and ploughing a uniquely progressive and exploratory furrow for over 25 years now. Neither conforming nor exhibiting any desire to be restricted to a single genre, OPETH, quite simply, has a time honored tradition of blowing our minds with both class and forward thinking. All these years later, nothing and everything has changed once again with their most recent album, »Sorceress«. »Sorceress« was released in September 2016. For the band’s first effort for Nuclear Blast via OPETH’s imprint label Moderbolaget Records, the group returned to Rockfield Studios in Wales, also home to pivotal releases from QUEEN, RUSH and JUDAS PRIEST, where the Swedes had tracked “Pale Communion” in 2014 with Tom Dalgety.
