Opeth: New Song Available Online
According to Blabbermouth.net, "The Devil's Orchard", a brand new song from Swedish progressive metallers OPETH, received its world premiere earlier tonight (Tuesday, July 26) on this week's edition of Triple J's "The Racket" radio show, which airs in Australia. You can now listen to the program at this location. (Note: The Opeth track starts around the 37-minute mark). Check out the show's entire playlist here. "The Devil's Orchard", which is also available for streaming at Stereogum.com, comes off Opeth's new album, "Heritage", due on September 20 (one day earlier internationally) via Roadrunner Records. The CD was produced by the band's mainman, Mikael kerfeldt, and was recorded earlier this year at Atlantis studios (formerly Metronome studios) in Stockholm. Mixing duties were handled by Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) and kerfeldt. Longtime collaborator Travis Smith also worked with kerfeldt to create, design and execute the album's artwork, which can be seen below. "Heritage" track listing: 01. Heritage 02. The Devil's Orchard 03. I Feel The Dark 04. Slither 05. Nepenthe 06. Haxprocess 07. Famine 08. The Lines In My Hand 09. Folklore 10. Marrow Of The Earth Play.com has listed a pre-order deal for "Heritage" that is not to be missed! The special edition includes a 5.1 mix of the album and making-of documentary, including a download card with two bonus tracks: "Pyre" and "Face In The Snow". The package also includes an Opeth coin. To pre-order your copy of the special edition or the standard version of the album, visit Play.com. "Heritage" will be released in several configurations that will certainly incite the interest of Opeth's legion of fans, known for their passion for collecting and collectibles. The album will be released as a standard version; as a special edition loaded with extras; as a box set exclusive to the Roadrunner and the band's own official Omerch webstore; and as a double LP. In a recent interview with Radio Metal, kerfeldt stated about "Heritage", "I never heard music like that, so I can't compare it to other bands. If you want to compare it to another band, it has to be us. But still, it's different. For me, it kind of makes sense, because I've been doing this for such a long time. So it's not a massive departure for me and for the guys in the band. But for fans, if they are, for example, into 'My Arms, Your Hearse' [Opeth's third album, released in 1998], it might be a bit different. But I'm hoping that a lot of people are ready for this type of album from us. The music is all over the place. It's hard to define the album and say it sound like this or like that. There are no songs that represent more the album than any other songs. It's an album as whole. You can't listen to only one song and you'll know what the album is going to be like. Because, like I said, it's all over the place."
