On March 2, Roadrunner released a collaborative album called God of War: Blood and Metal for the upcoming video game. The album includes Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Dream Theater, Taking Dawn, Opeth, and Mutiny Within. I formerly expressed my concern for the quality of this album due to the fact that the transfer from video games to other media often results in failure. Though that is not the case here, it is not quite a success.
I never would have thought that I would be doing a LATE review on a DEATH METAL album… But I guess opposite day exists. The Swedish progressive death metal band, Opeth, has been making waves for quite some time now. I’ve never bothered to check them out because of the instant turn off by the word “death” in “progressive death metal,” shallow may it be. However, progressive has made its way to my favorite genre of music, so I thought I woul open a few doors. The album Ghost Reveries, released August 29, 2005, has received overwhelming critical acclaim since its release. Today, I decided to personally investigate this.
