Well we all saw the great work of art that is "obZen" released by Meshuggah. Now its time for the other awesome Swedish band, Opeth, to release what is sure to be another great album. I think those two albums alone are enough to make me happy about this year of Metal releases.

I think I speak for most metal heads when I say Opeth can do no wrong. Unless they make a hip hop remix of Blackwater Park...Hell, even then I might check it out. lol

It's not even a matter of wanting Watershed.

I need it.

Opeth is one of the only bands that does that to me. The perfect blend of metal and prog.

Re-"Stil Life" is a great way to tide me over till then though....Hope the "Watershed" special edition is released at the same time with the extra new song and the 3 covers. I'll buy it, It's not hard to imagine how the Opeth cover of "Would" would go.

Now Playing: Bloodbath - "Blasting the Virginborn"....speaking of Ackerfeldt, good stuff from his other band check it out.
