Hot on the heels of their captivating UK tour – which included a night at the famed London Palladium – Swedish prog-metal/rock legends OPETH have released a dark and eerie new animated video short for the Swedish language track ‘Ingen Sanning Är Allas’ from their latest album, “In Cauda Venenum”,available now via Nuclear Blast. The video for the English version of the track, ‘Universal Truth’, will be revealed next Monday.
The offbeat and beautifully crafted video short was created by renowned South African born animator/artist Jess Cope (“Frankenweenie,” “Metallica: Here Comes Revenge”, Steven Wilson) and follows a melancholic and bitter man on the brink of self-destruction and insanity as he delves into a sinister alternate world as reality crumbles around him. Cope previously collaborated with OPETH’s Mikael Åkerfeldt on the music video for “Drag Ropes” for his side project STORM CORROSION, with Steven Wilson. Working mainly with traditional animation methods, her shorts have an enticingly tactile look and feel to them and are brought to life with an unprecedented level of skill and attention to detail. Her emotive storytelling draws in audiences in a way that has seen her win multiple awards for her films in recent years.
The video short precedes OPETH dates next month in China, Japan, and Hong Kong, before the band wrap up pre-Christmas in Australia. Their upcoming 2020 North American tour, with special guests Graveyard, kicks off in February, following a handful of European shows in January. OPETH return to the UK in August 2020 to headline the ArcTanGent festival in Bristol. For all dates and to pick up tickets, head to: http://www.opeth.com/tour-dates.

Released in both Swedish and English languages, the record features a number of standout tracks like “Hjärtat Vet Vad Handen Gör” / “Heart In Hand” and “Svekets Prins” / “Dignity” among others.

Some have even said that his favorite artist is Chesney Hawke!
