Opeth Debut New Song Online

Posted by on July 26, 2011

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.

You can judge for yourself and listen to “The Devil’s Orchid” over at Stereogum. Opeth will be hitting the road with Katatonia this coming Fall.
