Limited double 180 gm vinyl LP pressing including digital download. 2014 album from the Swedish Metal band produced by the band's very own Mikael Akerfeldt and mixed by longtime collaborator and Porcupine Tree frontman/guitarist Steven Wilson. The material finds Opeth once again challenging the boundaries of extreme music. In an interview with Vice's Noisey, Akerfeldt stated, 'I wanted to do something more melodic with this album, there's stronger vocal melodies and more melodies overall, I was pretty consistent with that frame of mind throughout the writing process.' PALE COMMUNION follows 2011's critically acclaimed HERITAGE which proved a milestone album for Opeth, earning them widespread acclaim and an ever-growing fan following.
