A lot of metalheads are pretty quick to bash Opeth for the direction their music has taken over the last few albums. They’ve gone from being one of the most amazing death metal bands ever to pretty much a straight prog rock band with a lot of other diverse influences as well. I for one don’t care what you think and am totally on board with their current musical direction and really like their new record Pale Communion. To mark the albums release (which was today so pick it up!) the band has released a very trippy video to go along with the albums opening track, “Eternal Rains Will Come.” I’m not sure if this is the official video for the track or not but it’s pretty cool either way.

Opeth released Pale Communion today under Roadrunner. This is the follow up to 2011′s Heritage and heir eleventh studio album overall. The band is touring Europe starting in October and hopeful they make it to North America very soon thereafter. For details on the European tour click HERE.
