OPETH reveal new song ‘Width of a Circle’, start pre-order for ‘In Cauda Venenum (Extended Edition)’ feat. 6 bonus tracks, and US co-headline-tour with Mastodon.

The formidable presence of Opeth continues with a selection of previously unreleased music from the ‘In Cauda Venenum’ sessions.

Since 1990, the Swedes have eclipsed convention, defiantly crushed the odds, and, most importantly, crafted 13 stunningly beautiful, intrinsically intense albums to become one of the biggest progressive rock/metal bands on the planet.

After selling more than two million records and hitting the #1 in the German album charts with their album ‘Sorceress‘ in 2016. Now back on a US tour with Mastodon in April and May 2022, frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt announces the release of ‘In Cauda Venenum (Extended Edition)‘ for May 13th.

This release, available on digipak, contains the English and Swedish versions of OPETH’s latest album “In Cauda Venenum” with new illustrations by internationally renowned, Travis Smith, for the booklet.

In addition, there is also a third CD including 3 unreleased bonus tracks, both in English and Swedish:
The Mob‘ / ‘Pöbeln’
Width of a Circle‘ / ‘Cirkelns Riktning
Freedom & Tyranny‘ / ‘Frihet & Tyranni
