Has anyone of you checked out the new Opeth album? It is very melodic and progressive. No growling vocals like last time. I didn't enjoy Heritage so much to be honest but this one is different and I like it so far. What do you guys think??

I honestly dont know yet. I really liked 'cusp of eternity', I heard that a while back and thought I'd buy the album on the strength of that track but since the full album streams came out and I listened to the rest of it...... mellow.gif Im not so sure.
Im usually okay with proggy stuff but I kinda got lost a few times listening to this album. Im sure its just too clever for me. I'll need a few more listens before I think about buying this one.
My inital thoughts on hearing it were.... Didnt like track 1, liked track 2, liked track 3 but it lost me towards the end.... then I struggled with the rest of the album and got lost in the the 'Yes' like progressions. huh.gif

You say 'minor pentatonic ' like it's a bad thing

Not really feeling this one yet, although there are some brilliant moments. Maybe it will be a grower. Since Watershed, Opeth albums are all over the place stylistically… they used to have this perfect balance that I feel they lost. They actually used to be my favorite band but I think they peaked for me between Still Life and Blackwater Park. Never got into the huge amount of Mellotron and keyboards they use to create their atmosphere nowadays. Still a good band worthy of listening to, I'm just so biased to the older material like many fans. smile.gif
