TOUR - 'Heritage Hunter' North America Tour with #Opeth and #Mastodon announced | Opeth | Scoop.it

This is an interesting pairing from a progressive metal standpoint.  Both bands are very popular in prog circles, but fan base overlap is fairly lean in my estimation. Should be an electric atmosphere.  Don't miss this one.

Gig Review: Opeth / Katatonia - Guelph Concert Theatre, Guelph ON October 30 [text]

Gig Review: Opeth / Katatonia - Guelph Concert Theatre, Guelph ON October 30 [text] | Opeth | Scoop.it

The focus on details over aggression created its own kind of intensity and produced a vitality that hasn't always come across in Opeth's live delivery. Ignoring shouts for often-played classics like "Demon of the Fall" ("Does your ticket say we take requests?" Åkerfeldt asked), they made their way through a drum solo, acoustic numbers and several heavier tracks toward an encore without the awkwardness of the dramatic exit and re-entrance.

Gig Review - Opeth Live at the Mayan! [text] | Opeth | Scoop.it
Have you ever gone to see a band perform live and left the show feeling totally inspired and alive to the point that you just wanna rush home, pick up your axe and get lost in the power of expression? We’ll last night I had that experience when I went to see Opeth live at The Mayan in downtown LA.

Album Review - Prog Rock Music Talk: Review: Opeth-Heritage

" ... Heritage (engineered by Steven Wilson) was a welcome addition to my collection because the band decided to leave the growling behind for the first time and let Akerfeldt lend his golden pipes to their complex and intriguing compositions. I would think the Death Metal fans out there will be disappointed with what they will hear on this release however if they are hardcore Opeth fans and appreciate excellent music; they will forgive them and enjoy this presentation and everything it has to offer."

Mikael again addresses the nontroversy that just will not die:

 

"One of the main critisisms of Opeth's new record, Heritage and their recent string of live performance is the absence of frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt's signature growl. There's none at all! "

Meeting legends within the metal community is always a humbling experience, as was the case about a week ago when Nathan and I were lucky enough to land an interview with Opeth frontman, Mikael Akerfeldt. I regret that it took us so long to get this interview up, but hey better late than never. Mikael was a very humble guy and was extremely interesting and fun to chat with. While I could've sat there forever talking to him about stuff, I also tried to stay concise and cover as much material as possible within the interview so enjoy.

Gig Review - Swedish metal band Opeth brings its Heritage Tour to The Rave [text]

Opeth, last night, brought their highly anticipated Heritage Tour to The Rave.

 

...

 

Opeth did a fantastic job of crafting a setlist that unified the old with the new, and after another new song "I Feel The Dark", the band ventured into familiar territory with "Face Of Melinda" and "Porcelain Heart", which featured a thunderous and savage drum solo from Martin Axenrot. The band looked on with the audience at Martin with equal parts amazement and wonder as he proceeded to systematically punch out a complex routine, and made it look all too easy.
