Opeth in studio video

Opeth have revealed a first taste of upcoming album Sorceress in a brief video teaser from studio sessions.

The clip show mainman Mikael Akerfeldt watching as Joakim Svalberg records part of a keyboard solo for the follow-up to 2014’s Pale Communion.

The band confirmed last week that 12th title Sorceress would arrive later this year via their imprint Moderbolaget Records, through Nuclear Blast. Akerfeldt said the deal had been done during a 150pmh drive in a Porsche, adding: “We’re happy to be part of the NB team and look forward to a fruitful relationship.”

Opeth commence a European tour in November, which includes an appearance at London’s SSE Wembley Arena on November 19.
