Opeth Film Video For "Porcelain Heart"

Band Photo: Opeth (?)

OPETH recently filmed a promotional video to an edit of the song 'Porcelain Heart'. The clip was directed by Lasse Hoile (PORCUPINE TREE) and shot in Vaxholm/Sweden at the marvellous Bogesund castle, built in the 1640's. The edit was done by Jens Bogren and Mikael Åkerfeldt.

Mikael comments: "I think the video came out great! The location and the castle was beyond gorgeous, even though it was cold and empty in there and...yeah, a little scary too. Lasse and his team as well as the actors did a great job! The clip is very gothic looking which I think is the perfect imagery for the song and for Opeth overall I suppose. Really enjoyed filming that one actually!"

RM?, you need to hear this song along with "lotus eater". I heard them off youtube. These two songs are the most progressive and experimental to date from these metal Gods!!

I can't wait for this album... This may just blow Meshuggah's "obZen" out of the water..and that is saying a lot.
