Opeth Streaming New Album 'Pale Communion' Ahead of Release
Opeth decided to give their fans quite a treat by streaming their upcoming album "Pale Communion" in full ahead of August 25 release via Roadrunner.

Marking the group's 11th studio effort, the album sees Mikael Akerfeldt and co. heading down the same proggy path they ventured on with "Heritage." Described by the frontman as "more melodic" than previous records, "Pale Communion" was announced with two singles so far - "Cusp of Eternity" and "Eternal Rains Will Come."

In related news, Mikael recently discussed how musical freedom gets little respect from fans these days. "Integrity is important, but people can dismiss me talking about integrity and talking about doing what we want to do. People can dismiss that and say, 'What you're doing is s--t.' And people have their own taste," he told Invisible Oranges. More on that here.

In the concert domain, Opeth have announced a three-week North American trek with In Flames and Red Fang. Details here.

Back to the album, you can pre-order it on iTunes, or stream it over on Team Rock. Since the stream is limited to UK only, we've included a YouTube link below. Let us know what you think!
