More information: For 12th album ‘Sorceress’, OPETH returned to Rockfield Studios in Wales, where the Swedes had tracked ‘Pale Communion’ with Tom Dalgety. The experience was positive and historical - the countryside studio was also home to pivotal BUDGIE, QUEEN, RUSH, JUDAS PRIEST, and MIKE OLDFIELD recordings - there really was no other option for OPETH and crew.
Mainman Mikael Åkerfeldt’s was very aware of what the masses have had to say about the band since ‘Watershed’. While some disliked the musical shift on ‘Heritage’, most have applauded it. They’ve come to expect something new from the Swedes. True to form, ‘Sorceress’ gave long-time fans and weary critics reason to re-think OPETH and what it takes to be musically fearless. Luckily, for Åkerfeldt and crew - bassist Martín Méndez, drummer Martin Axenrot, guitarist Fredrik Åkesson, and keyboardist Joakim Svalberg - have not been in a better band situation before. This unity is re-inforced when the band plays live with Metal Hammer recently crowning them “the reigning kings of progressive music” while Kerrang! insist they are “one of the most peerless bands of our time”.
