Opeth's forthcoming release, 'Heritage', is the band's tenth studio album. It will signal a departure for Opeth from the musical style of their past albums; most notably, there will be no death growls and the music will have a prominent fusion influence.
'Heritage' will be released on September 20 through Roadrunner Records. The album is produced by Opeth’s own Mikael Åkerfeldt and was recorded earlier this year at Atlantis studios in Stockholm, Sweden. Mixing duties were handled by Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree fame.
