Sweden’s OPETH are preparing to release their most important record to date with
“In Cauda Venenum”. Certainly, fans and critics will have their opinion, but few
records in the Swedes’ oeuvre are as engaging, delicate, panoramic, intense, and
musical as OPETH’s lucky thirteenth. Sporting a clever Travis Smith cover—replete
with inside jokes and a nod to KING DIAMOND—a masterful Park Studios (THE
HELLACOPTERS, GRAVEYARD) production, OPETH’s usual five-star musicianship,
and lyrics entirely in Swedish, “In Cauda Venenum” raises the bar markedly. While
a record in Swedish is a first—there’s also an English version—for frontman
and founding member Mikael Åkerfeldt, the 10 songs on offer feel and sound
completely natural. As if years of listening to and being a fan of Swedish rock
and hard rock has paid off.
