Aww hell yeah. Gotta go see that one; Opeth are one of the most consistently excellent bands out there.
For those who are into the really heavy stuff, go check out the Polish collab that is Batushka on Spotify https://open.spotify.com/album/44tXvDAgaAIHiJBBTaKZ5B, its easily the best Black Metal I’ve heard since Drought. Its like the Eastern European cousin to Deathspell Omega, instead of an inversion of the Catholic mass, its based around the Russian Orthodox rite, to the point of being done in Church Slavonic. That its a Polish band doing this leads me to the conclusion that there is absolutely a political statement being made here.
If you’re more into Prog stuff, Soen https://open.spotify.com/album/15FPn29zEvmrltLgQXWuJZ is remarkable. Wonderful vocals and melodies that you can just lose yourself in, The Words is just an amazing song to listen to.
I just wish both albums weren’t brickwalled as badly as they are; Soen in particular has sections where you can hear the dynamics trying to happen, but hey, that’s a lament that applies throughout the entire music world…
