Music Review: Opeth – Heritage (2011)

Had it been a distortion-free album, Opeth’s latest could well be on loop at a beach shack you’d spend a part of the day drinking at. But then again, Opeth isn’t that easy to listen to. Alluring from the piano intro, Opeth in 2011 is the ’70s group you’ve never heard. The band launches into short rock n’ roll moments every now and then on Heritage, even as the tasteful guitar-playing eases you into a feeling of completeness. The classic-progressive nature of the music (it’s rock, not metal) is upfront, and Opeth once again choose not to use any kind of vocal style apart from clean singing, and that’s a big deal when the singer’s such a fine growler. Heritage’s strength lies in its subtle way of keeping the listener hooked and already looking forward to another listen, and not just to believe how eclectic Opeth can get. Fans should contemplate this change.
