Opeth "Pale Communion" (2014)

This review will be short and sweet. Over 20 years Opeth have delivered 10 fantastic albums, all staying true to there unique vibe that is immediately identifiable. This being there 11th album, is one i had strong hopes for, and they were certainly met.

This album is their second without the death metal element that once made them stand out from other bands and the reality is its not missed. Opeth know how to write music, whatever pallet it is with. Pale Communion sounds like a mix of Heritage and Wateshed, with a more matured sense of pace and progression. In a nutshell, its exactly what you'd expect as an Opeth fan.
