Opeth have released a limited edition vinyl box set version of “Sorceress.” The set features the effort spread across four 10″ mini-LPs and it is available three colors. You can order one HERE.
During a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Mikael Åkerfeldt revealed that he already has a lot material written for Opeth’s next album. He said the following:
“I told myself I’d be taking a break, maybe even a sabbatical or something, after the last tour, but I think I lasted until after Christmas. I was definitely in the studio before New Year’s. I started writing in December last year and I’ve got a lot of music — I think I’ve got about an hour and a half’s worth of material — but I’m going to take it easy. I’m going to be very methodical and listen to a lot of stuff I’ve done and just make sure there’s no gaps of any kind on the next album. That feels important to me.”
A new limited edition transparent with a touch of black colored vinyl pressing of Opeth‘s 2005 album “Ghost Reveries” is set to be released on December 14 in North America via Music On Vinyl. It will be limited to 4,000 copies.

Opeth have premiered a new live video for “Ghost Of Perdition.” This footage is taken from the band’s new live release, “Garden Of The Titans: Live At Red Rocks Amphitheatre,” which was released today (November 2). That effort features the group’s May 11, 2017 performance at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, CO.
Opeth have collaborated with Heavy MetAle to create three new beers including: Heritage Pilsner, Sorceress Session IPA, and Garden Of The Titans Red Ale. The drinks will launch at the Zum Franziskaner beerhalle in Stockholm, Sweden on November 10. Members of the band will attend.
Here’s a description of each beer:
‘Heritage Pilsner is a brave and beautiful beer with light tones of bittersweet hops. A tasteful and timeless brew inspired by the band’s 2011 ‘Heritage’ album.
Sorceress Session IPA is bitter, strong and full of hops. Yet, its harsh body contains a hint of something sweet. And just like Opeth’s twelfth full-length 2016 album it’s an adventure where different notes and shifting tones create an orchestra with well-balanced flavours.
Garden of The Titans Red Ale is a unique red brew filled with American hops to commemorate Opeth’s ‘Garden of the Titans’ live album, set for worldwide release this November 2nd through Moderbolaget / Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Garden of the Titans was recorded on May 11th last year at the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, Colorado which provided the perfect inspiration for this tasteful American red ale.’
Opeth’s Mikael Åkerfeldt commented:
“From drinking random peoples; stale, leftover beers during the Stockholm nightlife of the early 90’s to manufacturing our very own beer together with Heavy MetAle might be seen as a massive leap of success. And it is! At least for the beer connoisseurs that we have become. We sincerely hope that everyone that uncaps a bottle of Opeth beer thoroughly enjoys its flavour. Fan or not, it doesn’t matter. A great beer remains a great beer on the taste buds of any devoted fan of this nectar from the Gods.”
Opeth will be screening their new live release, “Garden Of The Titans: Live At Red Rocks Amphitheatre,” at The Motalbán Theater in Los Angeles, CA On November 1. Doors will open at 8:30 p.m. and tickets can be purchased HERE. The release, which will be available on November 2, will feature the group’s May 11, 2017 performance at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, CO.
