Opeth's latest album 'Pale Communion' will be released Aug. 26, and as with the band's previous disc, 'Heritage,' it will not contain frontman Mikael Akerfeldt's epic gutteral vocals.

Opeth's fresh track, 'Cusp of Eternity,' is finally available to cram into your earholes. And guess what? It rules!
This week's edition of 'Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?' features one of modern metal's greatest frontmen, Opeth's Mikael Akerfeldt. Having also led death metal giants Bloodbath and experimental act Storm Corrosion, Akerfeldt has left a giant impact on music, so we invited the multitalented frontman to partake in a game of 'Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?'.
There is no band in the world quite like Opeth and there is definitely no band in the world like System of a Down. In our quest to find the greatest metal album released so far in the 21st century, these two heavyweights have advanced in March Metal Madness 2014 to face off in a massive Round 2 battle!
True progression in modern metal has been embraced by the fans of these two acts like almost no others. One hails from Sweden while the other comes straight from the U.S., but both have composed some of metal's most recent long-form masterpieces. Which one of these discs will advance in our March Metal Madness tournament to find the best 21st century metal album?
