Review : OPETH – "Heritage"

OpethHeritage
Release: 2011Sep13 (US)
Label: Roadrunner
Rating: 3/5

I followed Opeth to the gaping maw of Hell,
but since exploring Heritage, I’ve broken the spell
of Mikael’s every gorgeous vocal inflection—
because nothing can save that boring midsection—
and though not always necessary to growl and yell…

Ponderousness is never their style.
The “Orchard”-“Slither”-“Lines” promo left only smiles!
Plus, why is it that the last two pieces
are almost the names of Agalloch releases?
These fiery roots yield bittersweet fruits from ground less fertile.
(Alternate Buffy ending: Switch from Sweden to Sunnydale and guard the Hellmouth with Giles.)
