Opeth Unveil Brand New Track ‘Cusp of Eternity’
We've got a new Opeth single from the band's upcoming album 'Pale Communion.' The fresh track, 'Cusp of Eternity,' is available to cram into your earholes. And guess what? It rules!
Opeth suffered from some delays for 'Pale Communion' and 'Cusp of Eternity,' which left rabid Opeth fans in deeper anticipation. Opeth fanatics were counting down the days until the 'Pale Communion' album release date of June 17, but the launch was sadly stalled until Aug. 26.
The 'Cusp of Eternity' single was also pushed back from its original May 6 release, however, the drought is now officially over. The track has finally seen the light of day and is accompanied by a video based on the 'Pale Communion' album art (pictured left).
As for the new song's style, you can hear nuances from almost the entire Opeth's discography. Frontman Mikael Akerfeldt lends his soothing voice to 'Cusp of Eternity' without any use of death metal gutturals, which are absent from the entire 'Pale Communion' album. Some incredible guitar work is also committed to tape by both Akerfeldt and Fredrik Åkesson.
For those of you with addictive personalities, get ready to spin 'Cusp of Eternity' all day. Listen to the track in the player above.
