OPETH reveal album title track, ‘Sorceress’ & lyric video

1st August 2016 0 By John Deaux

As the heavy rock scene braces for one of the year’s most anticipated albums, experimental prog pioneers OPETH have declared the wait over.  Today, the band has unveiled the first new song and title track, ‘Sorceress,’ from their upcoming 12th studio album due out 30th September via the band’s imprint label, Moderbolaget Records through Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

Listen to ‘Sorceress’ and read an exclusive interview with Mikael Åkerfeldt now at RollingStone.com: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/opeth-on-how-romantic-mindf–ks-obscure-prog-inspired-new-lp-w431901

Comments OPETH frontman/guitarist, Mikael Åkerfeldt, “Here you go kids!  Here’s the title track, ‘Sorceress,’ combined with the now obligatory lyric video.  Why not eh?  We’re happy with the tune.  It’s heavy, a bit ‘meat and potato,’ but what the hell…we love it!  Hope you do too!”

Additionally, a variety of physical copies of ‘Sorceress’ can be pre-ordered from today.  The record will be available in an array of formats & limited editions including a standard CD, 2CD Digipak, 2LP vinyl (in various colours at 180 gram) and a Deluxe Edition Wooden Box Set.   Details and e-stores are listed below.
