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.
