Opeth's Pale Communion

I, for one, firmly believe it's the best thing I listened in years.



I'm just curious. Opinions?

Never thought I'd be so disappointed in this band... Lopez is the only part of this band keeping it real. The rest is just zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The beginning sounds like Watershed material, passed through an uninspiration and dilution filter. Then it sounds like Still Life / Damnation / Deliverance, which is alright.

I paused Inquisition to listen to this. Compared to all the fun Incubus gets to have, I feel bad for Axe.

For years Opeth just remained uninspired to my ears, but the last two albums have been real eye openers for me. The Jazz/protorock fusin is just unreal. Shows how far the musicality of a metalhead can go in other settings.

Upon further listening, I've decided Mikael Akerfelt has lost his motherfucking marbles.


In other news, Opeth does more imitation '70s Prog Rock in 2015! The story, next!

The best Opeth songs are actually all on Yes albums

Uh...It almost pains me to say I agree, I thought Heritage was a one off, but no...
It saddens me to see one of my favourite bands transform from the extreme-progressive-death-metal-whatever-awesomeness they were into this 70's prog band.
Bring back the DEEEAAAAAAATTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHH GROWLS!!!

Music oughta grip your soul, never the portrayed visual image. Rush never sold out. They helped pushed the boundary so long, they got tired and ran out of ideas, on account of old age. Opeth... well...

"Thunderheads are rumbling in a Distant. Over. Ture!"

Now that's how you ****ing do it right there.

I found that Rush had a solid career throughout but never matched the quality of their contemporaries from the 70s. They did however remain solid while the rest of them petered out in the 80s.

They could keep doing The Lotus Eater forever, and become a joke-big-band like Trivium or Machine Head, but they chose not to do it. For me, that is respectable (or maybe I'm just gullible)

Or, you know, they could keep mixing metal and prog in interesting and new ways, like they did before Heritage.

I'm actually going to backpedal slightly and admit that the record as a whole was a bit better than I expected it was going to be. It's the same style as Heritage was, but executed much, much better. There were some moments of classic Opeth brilliance in the last couple minutes of Moon Above, Sun Below and I quite liked that part in Goblin where it sounds like there's a bit of delay on the electric guitar, and I really liked the "ooh, ooh" part of Faith In Others.


But it still falls a little short simply because there are parts where it would be perfect to go into a heavy riff, but just continues along it's prog worship. Like that part of Goblin I mentioned above- that would be a great spot for a heavy guitar to come crashing in and shake things up a bit, but it just continues in the same monotonous tone.

Overall, it's not exactly a headbanger album that you blast in your car... it's more like an album to drink coffee & chill out to in the morning on your day off from work. Like all Opeth albums, it seems as if it will suit the cold, Autumn months... so I look forward to listening to this more in October.

yeah i always found it interesting that they fall under classic prog but their peak was late 70's/early 80's. i think they had a few really strong records but overall i agree, i think there was always a lot of hard rock influence left over which is why they are more popular/accessible as well as less complex then some other classic prog bands.

Mike should have went solo. Or at the very least took some long time off from Opeth. Would have been better for him, Opeth, and the fans.
