Opeth is a 5-piece band from Sweden that’s been releasing quality records since 1995, and Pale Communion is their latest. Those familiar with Opeth know they consistently push the boundaries on Progressive Metal, often (in the past) incorporating Death Metal elements into their wide and varied soundscape. Pale Communion is “different” than what Opeth has written in the past – much more sedate and melodic – essentially no delving into Death or Black Metal realms. With this album, Opeth very much enters Pink Floyd’s (prior) territory, sounding almost Jazzy at times. A bold change, however, this album may put you to sleep.

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
