Opeth’s switch from a death metal band to a prog rock one came gradually, and the band had always thrown in lots of melody along with the growling. It took until 2003 for them to go all clean vocals for one album, with Damnation being the yang to Deliverance‘s yin. However, the beautiful “Harvest” from 2001’s Blackwater Park, which was co-produced by Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson, was a clear taste of what Damnation would be. Now, just as Sorceress hits stores, cellist and arranger Raphael Weinroth-Browne has taken the song and arranged it for nine cellos. It’s breathtaking, and the meticulously-shot video shows the song off nicely. This is perfect music for a metal dinner party, and we want to hear fore from Weinroth-Browne.
