New Opeth Song

2019-07-12 by TheNotrap | 181 Comments
Opeth is currently streaming "Hjärtat Vet Vad Handen Gör / Heart In Hand", the first single from their upcoming album In Cauda Venenum, which will be released on September 27th via Moderbolaget / Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

Mikael Åkerfeldt states:
"Hjärtat Vet Vad Handen Gör" or "Heart in Hand" as it's called in English is one of the first couple of songs I wrote for In Cauda Venenum. I immediately knew that it would probably be favoured by "the powers that be" when talks of future singles for the record would commence. And I was right. I generally leave it up to the labels or managements to pick the so-called singles. I'm indifferent as I put an equal amount of dedication into all songs, so it doesn’t matter all that much to me. I guess it’s one of the more straightforward songs on the album. A rather rocking little thing. It’s got one of the ”happy mistakes” in it too. Mendez bass broke down in the middle of recording. At the time he played an old Hofner Beatles-esue bass guitar that started humming real bad, but it sounded so good we immediately decided to keep it in there. I’d be putting myself down if I said that noise is the best part of the song, but it’s up there. I like when stuff happens out of your control, and it actually adds to the piece. This is the first full taster of the new Opeth album, and of course I hope you like it. All the songs on the new album are different from each other and therefore equally representable in my view. Enjoy!"

Album will be released in two versions, in both Swedish and English languages.

In Cauda Venenum tracklist:

01. "Livet’s Trädgård / Garden Of Earthly Delights"
02. "Svekets Prins / Dignity"
03. "Hjärtat Vet Vad Handen Gör / Heart In Hand"
04. "De Närmast Sörjande / Next Of Kin"
05. "Minnets Yta / Lovelorn Crime"
06. "Charlatan"
07. "Ingen Sanning Är Allas / Universal Truth"
08. "Banemannen / The Garroter"
09. "Kontinuerlig Drift / Continuum"
10. "Allting Tar Slut / All Things Will Pass"

Damn, this one could be a rollercoaster in that case.

Great song, Mike’s cleans are strong and Axe is just straight up killing it.

Feels very ‘Opeth’, might be a silly thing to say but the last 2 records really haven’t had an identity.

Liking the positive vibes in here so far, I usually abstain from checking individual tracks before the album releases, but it might be hard to resist this time, especially as I'm curious after the last 2 (dud) albums. My curiosity is well and truly piqued.

The most hopeful thing here is the knowledge that this is one of the more straightforward tracks. It's not a bad track, just forgettable and employing very little of what I believe Opeth traditionally excel at.

Granted it's not much of an evolution but at least there's an actual Opeth identity within the songs.

I can't really name a track from the past 2 albums that felt like trademark Opeth.

@SpaceJester I gave it one listen, and maybe my thoughts will change over time, but it was the first time in the prog era where I felt like I wasn't listening to a cover band. It is closer to the Heritage sound than MAYH sure, but it feels like an Opeth song to me.

Spun it twice. It’s solid. Production is an improvement. Yeah it’s kind of PC-ish, but the execution is a little better, more soul. I’ll see where this goes from here. Cautiously optimistic.

This is pretty good, especially the increased energy and the production, but hoping the rest of the album is weirder and more adventurous. Despite the length this isn't particularly surprising or much above the level of PC and Sorceress, which are solid albums but their worst.

It's not bad, it's not good either. This song should be titled "Purgatory".

I listened to this a few times and it just seems they are trying to regress their sound while still trying to pull off the whole "prog" thing. So, did they create a new genre with this song here? Regressive Rock/Metal?

Look, I love Opeth, this band kicked ass at one point and that point ended at Heritage. It was a great run for sure. It's not about growls, it's not about 3/4 acoustic passages building a crescendo into a soundscape of euphoria, it's not about the vocal projection while singing, it's not about the lyrics, it's not about the production. It needs more juice, more spice. Something is missing here for sure, it is definitely nothing like Watershed at all, it's missing several ingredients to attain that comparison. Unforgettable.

If Gordon Ramsay listened to this he would say something like:

"It's bland, boring, it needs more salt and pepper."

“By the way, how come this band said they didn't like doing the same album every time yet they did death metal for like 15 years and now prog albums (like 5 so far) for like 9 years?“

They’ve changed up their sound pretty consistently, very few of their albums could be seen as retreads imo. It seems a bit unfair to say they “just did death metal” and now they’re “just doing prog”, unless you expect them to completely change genres every album

Production is better than Sorceress, Mike sounds great and Axe is brilliant as usual.

My main issue is the first 4 minutes are just of a repetitive verse/chorus/verse structure.

Feels like they could’ve done more to justify the 8:30 runtime.

Thankfully, the outro ends the track on a high note.

These guys are headlining an all-day festival thing in my home city in Nov, so I’ll take either of the following... new album rules, or they don’t play much/or at least it splits time with Sorceress, therefore leaving ample time for the classic cuts.

When I saw them on their Sorceress tour the balance was fine and the songs sounded better live that on record (a record I’m not fussed for).

Sorceress had some cool moments, but the production tainted its virtues

Very true. The production tainted the little virtues it had. Their absolute worst album.
I'm happy this sounds one step in the right direction, hopeful for the new one.

I'm glad that this song isn't more boring than the Sorceress stuff. Well ... I hope it grows on me

Definitely got into this more over the weekend.

The outro is a massive win but I still feel they could've implemented a different riff in the second verse, as opposed to just repeating the chuggy main riff.

Yeah, sounds like a good plan. That chuggy main riff is the worst part about it. Other than that it's very nice!

All of Heritage plus Eternal Rains and River are better than this, but apart from that I agree.

Heritage is certainly better than the two that came after it. These days I prefer it to the first two and Deliverance as well. Maybe even Watershed too.

Heritage rules

But I’ll also say the same about PC and Sorceress

Tbh how can you like the new song and not appreciate a track like Strange Brew

Or Chrysalis which could have fit on one of their heavy albums if they just turned up the distortion and added growls

kalkwiese
July 15th 2019

And added more dynamics. And had better production.

I’m not gonna argue that Sorceress could’ve had better production but I dunno what you mean about the dynamics

kalkwiese
July 15th 2019

I mean that Chrysalis is big and loud all the time, it's very not dynamic at all and I think that's dragging it down to an extent. Maybe better production would fix this issue though

Isn't 4:35~5:45 the most psychedelic they've ever been? I feel like almost nobody is giving it credit. (this song I mean)

Space Jester

@kalk never really bothered me too much since the outro is a lot more calm and the track in general is one of the moments on the album where they jam the hardest

In fact the new track has a pretty similar structure to Chrysalis imo

kalkwiese

Kinda true. I think Chrysalis is the track that suffers the most from the awful production issues. I wanted to like it so much

Didn't need that that long, quiet outro. They were galloping so excellently up to that point.
Eh, minor detail, it's an excellent song. That's right, I'm slapping a 4 on this.

Agreed, and it rules! Love to hear more like this. I think we discussed about this in the Sorceress thread.

Maybe there's a good live version of Chrysalis out there. The heavier louder sections on Sorceress don't sound good due to the production, but their live albums usually sound excellent; I'm not sure if they've recorded Chrysalis yet.
