    More words from promo:

    3. (8:48) Metal - Something that's never been tried before...sung vocals over blast beats. Toss in Per Wiberg's eerie keys and atmospheric guitars that melds into a pure Krautrock freakout that also reminisces Chic Corea at his most bombastic. Throughout the song it's riffs galore all slaked with both gorgeous singing and pure death metal growls. Listen for the "asylum murmuring" the end of the track.

    4. (7:42) Deep Floyd - A truly beautiful moment that sounds like John Lord playing keys for Pink Floyd. A ballad with a powerful chorus. Fantastic guitar playing trails out at the end of the song. Listen hard for Mikael's moment of guitar whimsy.

    "Idétemplet" by Vintersorg (on last year's Solens Rötter) features sung vocals on top of blast beats... kind of...

    Hell, Akercocke play an acoustic guitar over a blastbeat. It's not that unique - everything you can possibly do with the human voice, a guitar and a drumkit has already been done.

    Yeah, there's also lots of those moments on Ulver's "Bergtatt".

    I think he means singing in tune over a blast beat. I love Akercocke, but Jason's vocals waver on barely tolerable. :)

    I both want to avoid these reviews and read everyone of them. dammit, so conflicted... At least I know no matter what I read it can't take away the surprise of actually hearing it.

    This is off topic, but we should all praise Jon Snow's signature picture

    Jason's vocals are awesome! He sings in tune..

    The fact stands, clean vocals over a blast is not anything new in musical terms..

    New for Opeth though.

    can someone explain to me whats "cool" about blast beats? They usually sound pretty obnoxious when i hear them. Hopefully Opeth use them tastefully, as they tend to do with all things musically.

    Blast beats are intense.
    And often a welcome change to long, mellow interludes.
