Entertainment Reviews:

Alternative Press - p.166
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hat Opeth do best is flat-out shred, and at its finest moments, WATERSHED yowls like the unholy union of Queensryche, Yngwie Malmsteen and Morbid Angel."
Kerrang (Magazine) - p.46
"Part of Opeth's power has always been derived from the multitude of moods and stylistic shifts they employ...this is once again powerfully demonstrated across WATERSHED with every track a musical journey in itself."
Q (Magazine) - p.101
4 stars out of 5 -- "Patience, persistence and a good set of headphones will uncover fragile melodies here amid the maelstrom..."
Record Collector (magazine) - p.95
4 stars out of 5 -- "[S]tuffed with radical style shifts, key and tempo changes, unexpected about-turns and riffs emerging from every corner."

Product Description:

Opeth: Mikael ?kerfeldt (vocals, guitars); Fredrik ?kesson (guitar); Per Wiberg (keyboards); Mart¡n Mendez (bass guitar); Martin Axenrot (drums).
Opeth's ninth studio outing ,WATERSHED, is not only an improvement upon 2005's GHOST REVERIES, it plunges the group headlong into a fresh wellspring of creativity that is evident throughout. Starting with the folkish "Coil," the band plays with a host of new sounds, allowing the keyboards to breathe and simultaneously lulling the listener into a false sense of security with sugary female vocals. Opeth then blasts into "Heir Apparent" with a rejuvenated fervor not heard since 2001's BLACKWATER PARK. WATERSHED is riddled with new, experimental instrumentation, heart-pounding song arrangements and impeccably crisp production. A pioneer of atmospheric genre-blending, Opeth takes its neo-progressive rock and scorches it with some of the most black-tongued, shredding death metal this side of the abyss.
