New music from Mastodon AND Opeth? It’s a good day to say the least. We’ve been waiting to hear out first taste of Opeth’s new album Heritage, due out on September 20 via Roadrunner Records, for a while now. And thanks to Stereogum, we can hear a new song called “The Devil’s Orchid” online now.
The new song confirms what Mikael Åkerfeldt and co. have been promising as of late: that Heritage is unlike anything the band has previously released. Not only does “The Devil’s Orchid” feature only clean vocals, but also has a jazzier, upbeat vibe to it. It’s definitely different from Opeth’s past stuff. Nonetheless, we certainly dig it.
