Opeth Reach Watershed Moment in Australia
Opeth exist in a genre of one…
The forward-thinking Swedish titans, who seamlessly and fluidly combine metal, classic rock, prog, folk and free form jazz, continue the time-honored Opeth tradition on ‘Watershed’, their ninth album.
‘Watershed’ picks up where 2005’s flawless ‘Ghost Reveries’ left off, beginning contemplatively before erupting into full-bore chaos. The band are also bolstered by the addition of some new membership. Drummer Martin Axenrot and new guitarist Fredrik Åkesson, formerly of Arch Enemy.
‘Watershed’ was recorded in the band’s native Sweden and was produced by Åkerfeldt and Jens Bogren who stamp the undeniable Opeth sound on every note.
Opeth will continue to hold the mantle of the most innovative, creative and revered heavy artist of recent times with the release of 'Watershed'...an album no doubt poised to extend their reputation as masters in the genre.
So what could possibly add to the excitement of the release of ‘Watershed’ on May 31st…?
…After a sold out run of shows in April 2006, Opeth announce that they will once again tread the boards of our nation’s venues, with the ‘Watershed’ tour this September.
