5 stars I am not what you may call a death metal fan, but when it comes to Opeth, it's another story : I started Opeth last year with Still Life. Still Life was an incredible release, it sounded like something I had never heard before : while searching for other Opeth albums, I noticed that even though the sound is always kept the albums are always a huge step forward. So is Watershed, it is even exponentially increased on this album as Lindgren is gone.

The album features a beautiful and creepy introduction full of acoustic guitar : Coil. Then comes the Ultimately heavy and slow Heir Apparent, this song is definitely not for little girls. The Lotus Eater is full of changes and disturbing, while Burden is going out of Opeth style of music to rejoin with some kind of heavy Pink Floyd which is very enjoyable.

All in all, Watershed is full of very emotional content, but also some very violent moments,but as everything is dosed with great perfection, this makes another great Opeth Album : this may be the album of the year, there are no excuses to miss it!
