No advertising for illegal actions please even when it's about Opeth. It is against the forum rules I think.


Oh and don't you dare not to buy the Album when it's released!

Better edit your first post and just tell us about watershed and not where you got it from...
OrganisedConfusion
Does the album have the Alice In Chains cover on it or is that for the single release?

I think that riff in heir apparent (you know the one) is easily among the heaviest, most machine-gunningest, gut wrenchingest riffs I've ever had the pleasure of hearing.

OrganisedConfusion: Would is not getting released with any of the things announced yet, so you'll have to wait a bit to see it getting destroyed.

(Also, I kind of had to download it since I would have destroyed the lotus eater and porcelain heart otherwise, and it's amazing, completely different and more like a progressive rock album with metal influences than the other way around, but man, it's so good. It's to early to say it's one of their best though, but I can see it up there with the best. I've only listened to it about 10 times though, so it will grow a lot)
OrganisedConfusion
Cheers. I will keep a check on future releases smile.gif

I don't think they'll destroy it biggrin.gif After listening to the album, I love it.. Burden is quickly becoming one of my favorite songs ever, which is sayin' something. I agree about the progressive rock with metal influences thing.

That organ solo, then the guitar solo, then the detuned guitar passage... awesome ending biggrin.gif I love it.

I gotta be honest... I don't like half of the songs. Heir Apparent, Lotus Eater, and Porcelain Heart are the only songs that I care for... but those 3 songs still total up to 20+ minutes of good music, so I suppose it's still a decent album. I'd consider it a step down from Ghost Reveries... Blackwater Park is still my favorite album, by far.

Hey guys,

A few minutes ago I was browsing the internet for Opeth, and I found a site where you could download Watershed!
So I don't know if you guys already knew it, but the album has leaked. Well I know that I shouldn't download it but I couldn't resist it, I'm listening to it now and it doesnt seem to be a fake and the songs rule!

Now I feel kinda crap about this cause I don't know if I should allow myself to listen to it already or that I should wait till it comes out and buy it.


Mark. blink.gif mellow.gif


I couldn't hold myself either (A) tongue.gif I changed the bitrate on the songs, so that the original album will sound much better when I have it in my hands biggrin.gif
Imo i think this album is one of the top Opeth albums, the songs are so extremly well-written and arranged. Personaly I have a weakness for mikael åkerfeldts way of writing music, playing the heavy headbang riffs and then breaks down to a kind of ghostly acoustic part, he's a mastermind in my opinion! and he has a great voice above that tongue.gif



VinceG
so umm I would just like to bump this, because I finally got a hold of the leak. Its actually better than I thought it would be. Better than anything they have done after Still Life imo. Frederik being there actually made Opeth heavier than I would have like to think. The mellow parts are actually suitable for the change, and not just throwing it out there for giggles. It might just be a contender for best 08 for me. You guys know how I feel about Opeth, especially there recent stuff, so if I like this new album, you probably will love it as well.

Not a chance. That will be saved for the new Testament album smile.gif

I was just about to post this actually. I haven;t downloaded the album nor am i going to i'm waiting for it to come out but i saw all of them posted on youtube so i was wondering what the hell was going on. I love Porcelain Heart but i wonder how good the rest will be. Ghost Reveries is one of my favourite albums ever so it'll need to be pretty good to beat that.

In my opinion, the rest of the album is on par or better than porcelain heart, but you'll have to hear it yourself. I'm going to try to get myself a deluxe edition copy.

I would even go so far as saying that for me, Porcelain Heart is by far the worst song on the record. Don't get me wrong, it's a good song, but compared to the other songs on this record, it's nothing.
steve25
Yeah i've heard a few of them off of youtube, i quite liked Coil but nothing else has really stuck in my head yet but Porcelain Heart ticked with me instantly so i recon that's going to end up being my favourite track off the album. Then again i didn't totally love Ghost Reveries at first and yet it's turned out to be one of my favourite albums. So i should have to listen to the album a few times to decide if i like it overall but i'm still going to buy it when it comes out. What is your favouruite?
Fsgdjv
My favourite is always changing between, Heir Apparent, The Lotus Eater, Burden, Hessian Peel and Hex Omega. >_< Right now it's Hessian Peel though, and I think that one or The Lotus Eater will end up being my favourite.
JVM
I think I said this before but burden is easily my favorite unsure.gif

Well the CD officially came out yesterday down here at 12:00 pm, and I had the special edition on reserve, and its just amazing through and through. The DVD it came with had some bonus tracks on it, "Derelict Hands", "Bridge Of Sighs", and "Den Ständiga Resan", A lot of extra artwork, and the a kind of "making of" thing for Watershed, with some interviews and rehearsal videos which were really cool.

One of the best CD's this year easily smile.gif
Fsgdjv
Yeah, my favourite so far this year (what a shocking surprise), allthough both Moonspell''s Night Eternal and In Mourning's Shrouded Divine aren't that far vbehind it.

And yeah, I love the bonus track, and the little documentary. Derelict Herds is weird in such a nice way, I want more of that kind, even though it might not be as good as the other songs on the record and it wouldn't fit with the others either.

EDIT: I just found this on youtube, it's hillarious. http://youtube.com/watch?v=kLVm3i_xMvM&feature=related
The Uncreator
Yeah, and the case it came in, the special edition was awesome, it folded out like some weird envelope, pretty cool.

PS
Anyone notice the backwards part on Hessian Peel? Some guy put it played backwards on youtube, and it says "Out of the courtyard. Come back night. My sweet Satan. I see you", something like that. Really cool, adds to the already creepy atmosphere of the song.
Fsgdjv
I'm not a big fan of the case, I think I'm going to buy the normal edition as soon as I have time to do it, just to have something beautiful in the shelf. (yes, I suck)

EDIT: and also, this CE case looks like it'll get really worn out quickly aswell, so I'm going to need the normal edition just for playing it. (once again, yes I kind of suck)
The Uncreator
lol, I thought it was awesome, the way I keep My CD's though, they dont get damaged, especially if there in softer casings (Im really anal about them, its kinda bad), And I think im gonna by a frame for this CD anyway laugh.gif
steve25
I bought mine on Monday and yeah its an album of lushness =] but then i expected no different from Opeth. It's a great album although i will admit that at some parts in it only long time fans may be able to appreciate it because to others it might be a bit too 'weird'

Believe me, I'm anal about my cd's aswell, I'm almost to afraid to touch some of my favourite cd's, but that's why I'm thinking of getting an ordinary copy of watershed aswell, so I can touch it. Yes, I know I need help, but.. laugh.gif

Thats not a half bad idea as you know laugh.gif
OrganisedConfusion
I've listened a few times and I'm not overly impressed. I'm going to see them for the 3rd or 4th time in August I forget biggrin.gif Hopefully they are better then. I'm mainly going for Helloween, At The Gates and Iced Earth anyway tongue.gif
VinceG
So, yea, umm I think the more I played this album, the less I like it. The first couple of songs stood out the most, but the rest just flies off my ear.
