SwedenÆs Opeth are preparing to release their most important record to date with ôIn Cauda Venenumö. Certainly, fans and critics will have their opinion, but few records in the SwedesÆ oeuvre are as engaging, delicate, panoramic, intense, and musical as OpethÆs lucky thirteenth. Sporting a clever Travis Smith coverùreplete with inside jokes and a nod to King Diamondùa masterful Park Studios (The Hellacopters, Graveyard) production, OpethÆs usual five-star musicianship, and lyrics entirely in Swedish, ôIn Cauda Venenumö raises the bar markedly. While a record in Swedish is a firstùthereÆs also an English versionùfor frontman and founding member Mikael +kerfeldt, the 10 songs on offer feel and sound completely natural. As if years of listening to and being a fan of Swedish rock and hard rock has paid off. In a way, Opeth have come home. But the Swedish lyrics of the primary edition of ôIn Cauda Venenumö shouldnÆt distract from the quality presented in OpethÆs new songs, the lot of which sneak up and take control after repeated listens. ôIn Cauda Venenumö is like that, tricky in its complicated simplicity, resourceful in its ability to charm with delightful if wistful melodies. Really, itÆs just Opeth being Opeth.
