Opeth To Re-Release “Still Life” On Limited Edition Picture Disc

Opeth will be re-releasing their 1999 album “Still Life” as a limited edition picture disc on April 7. Preorders can be found HERE. The band commented:

“This limited double picture disc vinyl edition is presented in a gatefold sleeve featuring the re-worked artwork by original designer Travis Smith on both the sleeve and the vinyl prints, as well as featuring the band’s iconic emblem on the cover.”

Opeth Premiere “Era” Music Video

Opeth have premiered a new video for their song “Era.” This song is from the band’s latest album, “Sorceress,” which is available now.

Mikael Åkerfeldt said the following:

“I have to say our involvement in the making of the “Era” video was so minimal we can’t take credit either for or against its brilliance. We did 3D scans of our bodies (clothed) in Munich during the last European tour. I remember everyone’s extremely tired and probably slightly hungover. The director just placed us in a ice-cold room and then scanned us with something that looked like a flashing hairdryer. Done! We’ve done our part for the video. Next! During the process of finishing the piece it got clear to me that it really works with the song.

That’s something I was involved in actually, picking the song. It’s extremely difficult. Which song to choose? How do I know what works best for this format? Well, I don’t. I picked a song from the record that has a strong chorus. Slightly old school way of thinking I guess, but ultimately it didn’t matter all that much to me. The video is nice. I dig it. It’s slightly on the pretentious side, but hey, works for me! And like I said, it really works with the overall vibe of the song. Lyrically and musically and definitely emotionally.”
