WHAT’S BETTER THAN OPETH? HOW ABOUT FREE OPETH?
They can call it… FROPETH!!!
So remember how Opeth are releasing a live CD/DVD called In Live Concert at the Royal Albert Hall, which, despite what the title would suggest, is not a collection of trip-hop covers of songs originally by The Brothers Johnson, but is actually a recording of Opeth in live concert at the Royal Albert Hall?
Well, they’re giving away a track from that album for free. It’s “Dirge For November,” if you’re curious. Yeah, you have to give ’em your e-mail address, but while I can’t endorse that kind of behavior in some bands, I willingly endorse it from Opeth, ’cause they’re Opeth, and I’m biased in favor of good music like that. Also, I’m listening to it right now, and it sounds really good. So go get it.
In Live Concert at the Royal Albert Hall comes out September 21 on Roadrunner. You can order a super-duper special edition version right here. In case it comes up at dinner tonight, you ought to know that it was recorded at one of the only six shows the band did for their twentieth anniversary tour earlier this year.
