Opeth’s ‘Sorceress’ Enters Charts Worldwide!

by
Sweden’s musical alchemists, OPETH, have returned with their long-awaited, monumental 12th studio album, »Sorceress« (September 30th through Moderbolaget Records/Nuclear Blast), which has debuted on German album charts at #1 and entered the world-charts on #8! It has garnered high praise from fans and critics around the world, and finds the band at their most creative and progressive peak in their long celebrated career. The dynamic new music picks up where »Pale Communion« left off and dives deeper into the cerebral, psych rock the band has evolved towards over the last several records.

Additionally, »Sorceress« is charting around the world on following:

#1 Germany
#3 Finland
#6 Switzerland

Furthermore, the enthusiasm about OPETHs new record is also shown by the press:


“This is pure magic: Chief warlock Mikael Akerfelt and his crew bewitch every single listener with their new masterpiece »Sorceress«!” – SLAM (A), Thomas Sulzbacher

“Mikael Åkerfeldt and OPETH have done it again, and released yet another album better than its predecessor! Slightly darker, definitely more hauntingly beautiful, but most importantly with even better songs than ever, the band continues to thread the path that started with »Heritage« and »Pale Communion«, surpassing every expectation along the way!”
METAL HAMMER (N), Espen Nørvåg Slapgård

“The best OPETH album since »Ghost Reveries«!” – AMPED UP (B)
