​Opeth unveil new song "The Wilde Flowers"

The Swedish metallers Opeth presented a new lyric video for the song "The Wilde Flowers", taken from the forthcoming twelfth album "Sorceress".

Speaking with Metal Hammer, vocalist Mikael Åkerfeldt says:

"This was the first song I wrote for this album."

"It’s very dynamic. It has a chorus, I guess. Then there’s a big QUEEN-sounding bit in the middle just before this massive solo… oh, and harps! They’re hidden in the mix but they’re there. The title comes from the band CARAVAN – they were originally called Wilde Flowers. I always liked those weird spellings."

Earlier, Opeth have shared the album's title track and the song "Will O The Wisp". The release of "Sorceress" will be held on September 30 this year via Nuclear Blast and Moderbolaget Records. The band’s nearest tour dates can be found here.
