Het album In Cauda Venenum (Latijns voor 'gif in de staart') van de Zweedse rockband Opeth wordt in 2019 in twee versies uitgebracht: een Zweedstalige en Engelse versie. De tien songs van album zijn opgebouwd rond complexe structuren, fraaie melodieën en stevige gitaren. Daarbij wisselen de bandleden brute songs af met ingetogen, akoestische momenten. Het dertiende album van de band haalt de dertiende plaats in de Zweedse charts. © TiVo

Not everyone has the talent to create an album that can both serve as a real reference point for a whole genre, and yet still sound fresh 20 years after its release. That's a tricky feat in the world of metal, where trends in production came and went at a frenzied pace between the 90s and the first two decades of the twenty-first century. But Opeth pulled it off. When Blackwater Park came out in 2001, the Swedish combo had already laid the groundwork for what their style would become in the following years, somewhere between death metal and vintage progressive rock. But this record has an indescribable magic that crosses boundaries of genrebto help unite followers of different registers around its content. Is it still really death metal? Maybe it's better to see this album as the offspring of King Crimson mixed with Pink Floyd with the darkest of saturated guitars, and vocals that switch from clarity to guttural growls with unsettling ease. It's easy to lose one’s bearing in this sound... and fun, too.The strength of Blackwater Park lies as much in its writing as in its production. Beyond its offbeat approach to metal, it is lyrical and adventurous without ever lapsing into pomposity. This little gem has a more open, less cramped and clearer sound than many of its contemporaries. That's the result of hard work by Steven Wilson, for whom this was the first experience of producing this kind of music. This is also an album that marks the beginning of an abiding friendship between the English artist and Mikael Åkerfeldt, the frontman of Opeth. The two men even set up a joint project named Storm Corrosion a few years later.It all starts with The Leper Affinity whose dark power immediately establishes Opeth as a band in full command of the lexicon of death metal... until a first break arrives, with acoustic guitars and a calm and airy voice. It is here that it becomes clear that this is only the beginning of a hypnotic musical adventure. One of this adventures highlights is the sublime Bleak and its central sequence, which is worthy of the greatest progressive bands of the late 60s. Just a few tracks in, and already we have heard twenty minutes of rare beauty and intensity. It will be the same with the rest of the album. Each musician has mastered his instrument. Despite the apparent structural complexity of the tracks on offer, everything flows together with disconcerting ease, all the way to the closing Blackwater Park, in all its deep darkness and rare beauty. This album was a masterpiece and a milestone that brought Opeth into the pantheon of the essential metal acts, who have broken down the boundaries between genres. A cult classic. © Chief Brody/Qobuz

Dit tiende album van de veelgeprezen Zweedse prog-metal act is de opvolger van het uit 2008 afkomstige Watershed, en tevens de laatste waarop toetsenist Per Wiberg meespeelt, die de band in april 2011 verliet. Voornamelijk beïnvloed door progrock en Zweedse folk, horen we Opeth hun overduidelijke death metal neigingen wegschrapen zonder de cryptische en complexe natuur van hun muziek daarvoor op te offeren. De websingle “The Devil’s Orchard” staat er op. © John D. Buchanan /TiVo

After album (or "observation," as the band likes to call them) number eight -- Ghost Reveries -- Opeth could have very easily coasted, merely rehashing their sound. Instead, they opted to challenge themselves and their listeners, creating an album that can -- at times -- expose its true nature and scope slowly and -- at other times -- be jarring, as if it were turning itself inside out. Opeth take chances that many bands in the same situation would be too scared to have a go at. It's hard to say if the recent membership changes affected bandleader Mikael Åkerfeldt's writing and production, or if he was enjoying his trip down classic rock (see: Deep Purple) lane. For whatever reason, Watershed is a new benchmark for Opeth. The tricky part is pointing out that while Watershed is a fantastic record, one that takes chances while remaining totally metal (dude), it feels less like a complete statement than a preview for something even greater. After the pastoral introduction of "Coil," Opeth move into pummeling mode with "Heir Apparent." It's one of the few tracks here to feature growling death metal vocals. But it is track three where Opeth really take the listener by the ear and twist. There's a gently humming prologue, then "The Lotus Eater" becomes a slab of blastbeats iced with clean vocals that -- as with many Opeth tunes -- takes a "break" two-thirds of the way through, only to take one hell of a left turn out of nowhere. The tune doesn't just go back to heavy riffage, but explores a prog metal, psychedelic organ quasi-freakout that touches on pure jazz. "Burden," arguably the strongest of the classicist tunes on Watershed (closely followed by "Hessian Peel"), is lush and grandiose. It's the moment on this collection where the listener realizes how incredibly talented this band is. And if the songs themselves aren't enough, the structures and fade-outs on some of them are. An example: "Burden"'s gentle guitar outro is deconstructed by someone manually detuning Åkerfeldt's guitar as he plays. Another: "Lotus Eater"'s Dark Side of the Moon-esque "voices in your head" send-off. These add more depth to an album that surprises continually, even after repeated listens. Sure, there are some (sort of) weak moments -- "Porcelain Heart" seems a bit mainstream, and "Hex Omega," while a stunning closer, has insanely tough competition as a standout from the other six tracks. Essentially, Opeth's perceived weaknesses would be pivotal moments for any other band. This is a band that has managed to get exponentially better with each release, taking amazing chances and managing to not only win new fans, but not alienate older ones. A perfect blend of the death metal of Still Life, Blackwater Park, and My Arms, Your Hearse, the monolithic riffage of Deliverance and Ghost Reveries, and the prog/classicism of Damnation combined with classic Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, and Scorpions, Watershed marks a new chapter for Opeth, one that promises infinitely more than its predecessors. © Christopher M.
