Opeth Share ‘Demon of the Fall’ From ‘Live at Red Rocks’ Performance
Pioneering progressive Swedish metal band Opeth has released a pair of live recordings from the DVD and album Garden Of The Titans: Live At Red Rocks Amphitheater, which comes out November 2.
The album's first song, "Sorceress," (video below) is the title track of the band's last album, which came out in 2016. The second track, "Demon Of The Fall," (video above) was originally released on the 1998 album My Arms, Your Hearse.
Both tracks were filmed at the band's May 11, 2017 concert at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, Colorado. The footage was shot by The Deka Brothers and audio was mixed by David Castillo. Garden Of The Titans: Live At Red Rocks Amphitheater will be available in DVD, Blu-Ray and vinyl formats. Both video editions feature CDs of the audio.
In addition, Opeth will release a limited edition of the ten-inch vinyl Ghost Of Perdition (Live) in various colors on October 19. The A-side features "Ghosts of Perdition" and "Sorceress" can be found on the B-side.
At the same time as Opeth are reminiscing about the recent past, they're looking to the future, laying the groundwork for their 13th studio album. "We're very much into the demoing," guitarist Fredrik Åkesson told FaceCulture. "I've recorded a lot of solos so far. And [frontman] Mikael [Åkerfeldt] has almost already written 12 songs for the new album, so we have more material than enough for an album. But I think we will at least try to finish 15 songs. So hopefully we'll work on song ideas very soon."
The guitarist added that the new music is "more complex, more energetic" than that on the last three albums and that Opeth hope to release their next record in the first quarter of 2019. "I'm not sure if it's gonna happen, but we're working towards that, and the songwriting goes very well," Åkesson said. "Mikael has been very productive these last… since January, basically."
