Copenhell Festival, Copenhagen, DenmarkCOPENHELL ADDS SWEDISH BAND OPETH TO THE LINE UP

OPETH is a Swedish band that makes it hard not to be a little bit envious of the country rock to the north. It will be close to the truth – but not the whole truth – to call them in Scandinavia response to Tool and Cynic, for there is no doubt that they must appear with the greatest progressive metal bands. Yet Opeth their own death metal universe that moves out in both blues and folk, and Mikael Åkerfeldt is a singer who can both growl, so Refshaleøen will shake, but also provides ‘clean vocals’ that can be so much more than just being clean.
