Opeth unveil Sorceress title track

Opeth

Opeth have unveiled the title track for their 12th album Sorceress, which is set to arrive next month.

Hear it now via BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show (at around one hour and 27 minutes into the clip.)

Mainman Mikael Akerfeldt recently revealed the band had recorded the record in 12 days after he’d spent six months writing it.

He added: “It’s a fine little record – my favourite in our discography right now. It’s both fresh and old, both progressive and rehashed. Heavy and calm. Just the way we like it.”

Sorceress, which follows 2014’s Pale Communion, is released on September 30 via Nuclear Blast. Opeth begin a North American tour on September 29, followed by European dates in November and an appearance at London’s Wembley Arena on November 19.
