Opeth - Heritage (2011)

Heritage is the upcoming tenth studio album by Swedish progressive metal band Opeth, scheduled for release on 14 September 2011 by Roadrunner Records. It will be the band's tenth studio album and first since Watershed in 2008, marking the longest gap between studio albums in their history. Heritage will signal a departure for Opeth from the musical style of their past albums. Originally, the first two songs Mikael Akerfeldt wrote for the album were in the style of Watershed, but he scrapped them soon after. After writing "The Lines in My Hands" and speaking with Martin Mendez, Åkerfeldt decided to write the rest of the album in that style.Heritage will feature no death growls, which have been present on every Opeth album except Damnation. The album's title track is influenced by Jan Johansson and Swedish folk music. - Wikipedia

Being a big fan of Opeth and also their more melodic and progressive albums in spite of death metal ones, I say I couldn't continue listening to this album after 3rd or 4th song. Mikael, as far as I've seen, tried to be more soft and more kinda Damnation but sorry, he couldn't make a good job. Well, at least he could try stealing from some Camel stuff, hehe...
