Opeth's new album, "Watershed", has entered the Australian chart at position No. 7. As previously reported, the CD has also landed at No. 14 in Holland and No. 15 in Japan (Oricon chart). "Watershed" was recorded in the band's native Sweden and produced by frontman/guitarist Mikael kerfeldt and Jens Bogren. All the songs were written by kerfeldt apart from "Porcelain Heart", which was co-written with new guitarist Fredrik kesson. One additonal track, "Derelict Herds", was also recorded and this was written by Mikael kerfeldt and Per Wiberg. On top of this, three cover songs were recorded. "Bridge of Sighs" from Robin Trower's 1974 LP of the same title, "Den Stndiga Resan" (sung in Swedish) by Marie Fredriksson as well as the classic Alice In Chains song "Would?" The album was recorded at Fascination Street studios between November 1 and December 13, 2007. Some additional recording was done between January 3 and January 7. Opeth recently filmed a promotional video for an edit of the song "Porcelain Heart". The clip was directed by Lasse Hoile (Porcupine Tree) and shot in Vaxholm, Sweden at the marvellous Bogesund castle, built in the 1640s. The edit was done by Jens Bogren and Opeth mainman Mikael kerfeldt. Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.
