As the heavy-rock and metal scenes brace for one of the year’s most anticipated albums, experimental prog pioneers OPETH has declared the wait is over. Today, the band has partnered with RollingStone.com to unveil the first new song and title track, ‘Sorceress’, from their upcoming, 12th studio album that’s due out on September 30th via the band’s imprint label Moderbolaget Records with Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
Watch ‘Sorceress’ lyric video below.
“Here you go kids! Here’s the title track, ‘Sorceress,’ combined with the now obligatory lyric video. Why not, eh? We’re happy with the tune. It’s heavy, a bit “meat and potato,” but what the hell…we love it! Hope you do too!” – Mikael Åkerfeldt
Additionally, OPETH, with their label, has launched a variety of pre-orders for physical copies of “Sorceress” that can be purchased today. The record will be available in an array of formats and editions including Standard Jewel CD, 2CD Digipak, 2LP Vinyl (in various colors at 180 gram) and a Deluxe Edition Wooden Box Set.
