Opeth Australian Tour - November 2009

Opeth are set to tour Australia's eastern states in November this year. Get your tix coz they won't last long.

 

In a metal world starved for integrity, intelligence and beauty, Opeth shine like a beacon through dark clouds.  They are artistic visionaries and their transcendent live shows have gone down in music folklore.

 

Combining towering blasts of blackened death metal with the intricacy of 1970s prog rock and the more subtle, gentle beauty of folk, Opeth continue to create epic and iconic music; inventing and reinventing the rules as they go along.

 

No wonder the metal world stops whatever it’s doing and pauses with bated breath each time the band announce an album or tour. In just over a decade and across nine studio albums, they have become the standard bearer for modern metal.

 

Opeth have reinforced their hold on the mantle of the most innovative, creative and revered heavy artist of recent times with the release of Watershed.  These Swedes continue to venture where others couldn't fathom and have returned with a treasure trove of songs that makes most so-called sonic adventurists seem positively one-dimensional. ‘Watershed’ picks up where 2005’s flawless Ghost Reveries left off, beginning contemplatively before erupting into full-bore chaos.

 

Tickets for Opeth’s upcoming Australian November tour will not last long.
