What is better than a show that combines both Opeth and Gojira? Well one that finds Devin Townsend Project starting off the night is that’s for sure. You don’t want to miss this one at all.
You probably think you are reading that incorrectly but you are not. Opeth is indeed performing at RCMH and its going to be a stunner.
Title: “Sorceress” (Single)

The Press Release:
OPETH sign to Nuclear Blast Entertainment; “Sorceress” to be released in late 2016
Nuclear Blast Entertainment is very pleased to announce the signing of Swedish progressive legends, OPETH. Always an unstoppable force for uniqueness amid a sea of generic swill, OPETH has been setting the rulebook ablaze, and ploughing a uniquely progressive and exploratory furrow for over 25 years now. Neither conforming nor exhibiting any desire to be restricted to a single genre, OPETH, quite simply, has a time honored tradition of blowing our minds with both class and forward thinking. All these years later, nothing and everything has changed once again with their forthcoming album Sorceress.
“We’re happy to confirm that we have indeed signed a deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment and will be putting out our 12th studio album Sorceress via our own imprint, Moderbolaget Records,” states Mikael Åkerfeldt. “The decision was made in Markus Staiger’s (Nuclear Blast kingpin) ridiculously potent Porsche going at 150 mph somewhere in the south of Germany. We’re happy to be part of the NB team and look forward to a fruitful relationship.”

“More big news! We’ve already teased about it earlier but we can now make it official that Opeth will headline the awesome New York’s Radio City Music Hall on October 1st!”
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve only one word on this and that is “AWESOME”. A band like Opeth should sound incredible in Radio City Music Hall and I am going to hope against hope that I will be able to be a part of this monu-Metal occasion. What do you readers think about this? Let’s discuss in the comments below.
