A FAIR JUDMENT

CONSTANTLY EVOLVING AND GROWING BIGGER AND BOLDER WITH EVERY RELEASE, NEW ALBUM ‘SORCERESS’ SEES THE SWEDES CONTINUE TO EVOLVE, EVEN IF IT WAS WRITTEN UNDER EXTREME CONSTRAINTS. MIKAEL ÅKERFELDT REVEALS ALL

Remember, when a strange little band from Sweden put out a record with a flower on the cover and everybody spent a few weeks trying to get their heads around that labyrinthine death metal found within and trying not to utter the word ‘prog’ too often? You might not, if you weren’t already old enough in 1995, but in any case your first contact with Opeth must have been a similarly startling revelation all the same. And unless you’ve really just bumped into them in the last couple of years (welcome to the ride, in that case!), you probably also never thought this quirky bunch of Swedes would be selling out Wembley Arena a few years later. Even with a few drastic line-up changes, even with the odd, sporadic low point here and there, Opeth have grown larger than any metalhead’s creative imagination ever thought they would – they have, in fact, transcended that metalhead world from which they were spawned. While still maintaining many followers from those days – here they are, signed to Nuclear Blast and in fuckin’ Terrorizer still, right? – they have also become one of those bands that we have reluctantly had to start sharing with a certain section of the mainstream, and that transition is something Mikael Åkerfeldt and the boys have handled admirably. In fact, so unphased by the ‘big leagues’ the talented frontman is, that he still handles his writing in the same razor edge way he always has.

About Terrorizer Magazine

It’s always a pleasure to feature Darkthrone on the cover of Terrorizer. They are a truly reliable band that not only continue to deliver utterly awesome songs, but fly the flag for the metal underground. New album ‘Artic Thunder’ doesn’t disappoint and we hope you’ll enjoy our cover feature as much as I enjoyed reading it when it landed in my inbox. September is always a time when the music industry recovers from the summer festivals and starts to look forward to closure on the year, and believe it or not, start to think about 2017 and next year’s releases. On the horizon there’s new albums from a newly reformed The Obsessed and Obituary just to whet your appetite already. Next year marks the 30th anniversary of Celtic Frost’s ‘Into The Pandemonium’, so I hope to see some kind of reissue. Noise/Tom G – if you’re reading! In the meantime, the rest of the year will see an awesome line-up at this year’s Damnation Festival in Leeds and a fuck load more releases to look forward to – including amazing albums by Venom Prison, 40 Watt Sun, Lucifer’s Chalice and The Dillinger Escape Plan, to name just a few. I’ve also just finished reading former Cro-Mags bassist Harley Flanagan’s biography which is utterly fantastic. It’s out at the end of this month, we’ll be bringing you an interview next issue...
