Det svenske progressive metal band Opeth har løftet sløret for endnu en ny sang fra deres kommende album “Pale Communion”.
Sangen ”Eternal Rains”, som kan høres nedenfor, er åbnings numret på gruppens elvte studiealbum som udkommer 26. august igennem Roadrunner Records.
“Pale Communion” er produceret af guitarist/vokalist Mikael Åkerfeldt og mikset af Porcupine Tree’s frontmand og guitarist Steven Wilson.
Åkerfeldt har i et interview med Noisey sagt følgende om det nye album:
”Normally when I start writing for a record, I'm a bit nervous. You don't know whether or not you're going to be able to come up with something that you like or come up with something at all, to be honest. I was inspired because pretty early on, I wrote a song on the new album — the last song on there, which I ended up being really happy with. So I had some type of guidelines which was more melody, I think."
“'Heritage' was somewhat deliberately fucked up all over the place because I love fucked-up-all-over-the-place-type music, but I wanted to do something more melodic with this album, so there's stronger vocal melodies and more melodies overall for this album. I was pretty consistent with that frame of mind throughout the writing process, so at least I had a plan with this album, and I normally don't, to be honest."
