OPETH // SORCERESS - 4X 10" CLEAR LP (LTD EDITION DELUXE VINYL BOX)
Strictly Limited 4x 10 Inch LP In A Sleek Deluxe Vinyl Box In Clear Vinyl
RELEASE DATE: 14/12/18
'Sorceress,' Opeth's first effort for Nuclear Blast (via the band's imprint label Moderbolaget Records) is proof chief architect Mikael Åkerfeldt has a near-endless well of greatness inside.
From the album's opener "Persephone," to "The Wilde Flowers" and "Strange Brew," to the album's counterpart title tracks "Sorceress" and "Sorceress 2," Opeth's new full-length is an unparalleled adventure, where visions cleverly and secretly change, colors mute as if weathered by time, and sounds challenge profoundly.
For 'Sorceress,' Opeth returned to Rockfield Studios in Wales, also home to pivotal releases from Queen, Rush and Judas Priest, where the Swedes had tracked 'Pale Communion' in 2014 with Tom Dalgety. The band spent twelve days recording at the countryside venue among its serene and inspiring surroundings. The result is nothing short of a powerful and intriguing record that will add yet another layer to the band's celebrated career.
"The new album 'Sorceress' is our twelfth studio album since our beginnings in 1990," says Åkerfeldt. "I find it difficult to understand that we've been going on for twenty-six years, let alone that we've made twelve records now, all of which I am very proud of. 'Sorceress' is no exception."
