Performed at Pukkelpop in
The music wafting (or booming) across the Pukkelpop meadows doesn’t always have to be singalong favourites. Opeth also finds favour among fans of progressive metal and musical virtuosity. The Swedes surprised friends and foes alike with their tenth album, ‘Heritage’. Why? It’s their second album in twenty years of playing metal that doesn’t include heavy grunting and major doses of death metal. No need to wonder whether you’ve inadvertently ended up at a peace-loving Dream Theater concert, though: blast beats and primal screams could lie in wait behind every shift in tempo or dissonant scale.
