Opeth avoids coming off like some chest-beating schoolyard bully with a complex to hide. Instead of relentlessly screeching and pounding, the band injects ample doses of intrinsically human, acoustically driven clean vocals. So before some of the denser concepts bubble to the surface, a series of ebbs and flows charge forth with both orchestrated primal power and reflective, stirring emotion. The result is a uniquely effective picture of man as a beast of dualities.
Hearing the disc, it's impossible not to at least casually join the fervent pack of Opeth followers entertaining the idea that the group has a fighting chance of altering the current heavy metal landscape. They've done the unthinkable by making both progressive metal and extreme metal fully engaging.
Opeth play the Masquerade Wed., May 9.
