OPETH: Footage From Denmark's COPENHELL Festival Posted Online

Fan-filmed video footage of OPETH's June 17, 2011 performance at this year's edition of Copenhell the first big, outdoor metal festival in Denmark in Copenhagen can be viewed below.

According to Nero of Arte Sonora, a Portuguese music and pro audio magazine, Peruvian drummer and percussionist Alex Acua who played with the fusion/prog jazz band WEATHER REPORT and performed/recorded with Elvis Presley, Peter Gabriel, THE CULT, Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea makes a guest appearance on "Heritage", the new album from OPETH.

"Heritage" will be released on September 20 via Roadrunner Records. The CD was produced by OPETH vocalist/guitarist Mikael kerfeldt and was recorded earlier this year at Atlantis studios (formerly Metronome studios) in Stockholm. Mixing duties were handled by Steven Wilson (PORCUPINE TREE) and kerfeldt. Longtime collaborator Travis Smith also worked with kerfeldt to create, design and execute the album's artwork, which can be seen below.

"Heritage" will be released in several configurations that will certainly incite the interest of OPETH's legion of fans, known for their passion for collecting and collectibles. The album will be released as a standard version; as a special edition loaded with extras; as a box set exclusive to the Roadrunner and the band's own official Omerch webstore; and as a double LP. There is something for every OPETH fan, thanks to this variety of options.
