After their successful stint heading up the ‘Defenders Of The Faith’ tour in April, OPETH are set to play a full UK tour this Winter in support of their brand new ninth studio album, ‘Watershed’, which was released on Monday.

Unsurprisingly, to those in the know, OPETH have once again picked up plaudits galore for their new opus. Check out some of the things people have been saying about the new release:

“…a classic. Not just a great metal band. A great band in any genre.” – 10/10 – ROCKSOUND

“It is simply, a masterpiece. Nothing else will come close to this in 2008.” – 9/10 – METAL HAMMER

“This is the sound of excellence.” – 10/10 – POWERPLAY

“Opeth find their feet with what is set to become a career highlight” – 9/10 CLASSIC ROCK

“Sweden’s finest deliver a modern rock classic.” – 5/5 – GUITARIST

The album is available in a special edition format that includes a DVD of extra content, special packaging and two extra tracks. You can pick up your copy at the ROADRUNNER STORE
