    I've thought the exact same thing. For someone who claims to hate most modern metal he's sure made some odd recruitment choices. The other guitarist is the typical soulless shredder, really hate that stuff. He should've asked someone tasteful, like Nicklas Barker from Anekdoten, instead.

    Opeth is one of my favs but this album cover is shit. I'm hoping the album is better on the ears than the eyes

    The new song sucks!

    They sound so uninspired nowadays. It seems like they are trying hard to get rid of their metal roots but forgetting that that's the only style they're actually good in. They are trying to replace it with some kind of boring prog rock. Sure, older albums contained prog rock elements too, but now they're pretty much losing any originality.

    This is one of the funnier things people keep on saying about the new song. Completely nonsensical.

    Take a song like Godheads Lament for example. Creativity and inventive songwriting all over the place. What they have been doing since WS (arguably GR): trying to be prog without having anything to say.

    The Devil's Orchard is one godawful song, and this is coming from both an Opeth and a prog rock fan.

    It's less of a tribute to 70ies prog rock, and more of a bunch of recycled Dream Theater riffs along with some faux-prog synths.

    Fail.

    This is going to be Opeth's "LOAD" album.
