Opeth - Book Of Opeth Review

Album Review

Lavish ‘oral history’ of Opeth's quarter-century career.

Are Opeth really 25 years old?

If you’re in any doubt a leaf through the Book Of Opeth will remind you of their considerable career. To celebrate their quarter-century anniversary Mikael Åkerfeldt and chums have decided to treat their fans to a glossy, illustrated history of the band, spanning from the early years to the present times, as told by the band’s current and past members through a series of first-person anecdotes. The introduction assures us that there will be special tours and releases in honour of the milestone but Opeth wanted to give us something special, as if they haven’t already…

An open honest account, but The Dirt this ain’t.
