I guess 'pointless' would be a pretty accurate description. Come on guys, you can do better than this.
Iron Nostarion - 24.09.2011 at 15:55  
Meh, it feels like Opeth is more prog-loyal than metal-loyal these days (I always thought they were this way anyway). Next thing you know, they go djent or just go on with this '70s shit.

Watching the video really makes you realize how stupid this 70's prog shit really is.

Yes, video is stupid (although interesting), but I don't see how "this 70's prog shit" is stupid. There's a lot of people who love 70s prog rock and this album - me included. Just because you don't like 70s prog doesn't mean that nobody does.

It's kinda funny and cheesy.
Angel_Lament - 24.09.2011 at 17:53  
Weird yet interesting...I think its all about symbolism.
BehzadSh - 24.09.2011 at 18:37  
It could be better, but sucks really sucks. I like "Heritage" album and "The Devil's Orchard" very much, but video is pure SHIT

Premiere not Premier... video reminded me of Fantasia with the devil, but the woman in it was annoying.
yosterdude - 24.09.2011 at 21:12  
Yup, they've gone full out prog now, I miss the good old Opeth, This stuff ain't bad, it's just not proper Opeth material if you ask me
bluegreengod - 24.09.2011 at 22:48  
Lots of people complain about this video. I'll bet they actually tried to watch it sober. haha too bad.

I meant Opeth's take on it. There are much better 70's prog albums than "Heritage". In my opinion, Opeth's new album does not compare to past albums of the same ilk. And the video just makes it worse for me...

There is some kind of insanity they want to show with this video, I cant figure out what anxiety is behind that but I'm starting to feel comfortable with this new vision. There is curiosity you can't deny.

I have never cared for music videos, pointless IMO ..
INÆRIS - 25.09.2011 at 01:46  
It's interesting, but then again, have they ever had a music video that was absolutely breathtaking? I think their music is hard to put into visuals. It's interesting they chose The Devil's Orchard for a video. I think it's one of the weaker songs on the record.
Sworn - 25.09.2011 at 02:15  
Opeth has lost everything that made them unique. Now they are just another progressive rock band.
Unhealer - 25.09.2011 at 03:48  
Opeth never cares about their videos, they said it on an interview (well, Mikael did).
Roadrunner wants the single to be spread with a videoclip and they just go and film the video (in this case, not even that).

All Opeth videos are bad, it's a rule guys
Actually, this was a cool idea for a videoclip, but it didn't like it too much.

They forgot to include the note at the beginning: "the following video requieres viewers to be under the effect of a psycotropic drug (LSD, ICE, etc)"
Monolithic - 25.09.2011 at 13:28  
All I can say is: "Weird and Amusing"
I Never had any serious interest in Music Videos, but I don't think this video could be a MAJOR turning point for the band.

No comment.

Not to be nitpicky, but I think you mean "psychedelic"....couldn't help it being a huge advocate of acid. Having said that, even while tripping....this video and album are nothing special. (;

Heritage, from what Ive listened to, is pretty good addition to that whole sort of genre.

70's prog is awesome to. If you don't like it then fine, but theres more to music than metal.

Love the new album but this video was too stereotypically and not to mention poorly executed.. How i wish they incorporated more of the beautiful album artwork
ScanDoppelganger - 27.09.2011 at 10:51  
This video would be awesome if the devil the only point of focus.
Benjamin - 01.10.2011 at 15:29  
Dear Opeth, Please accept my wholehearted condolences for your devastating change of direction and significant loss of fans. These are difficult times for you, but as always you'll stay true to task and carry on, but from now it is without me. Regards, Benjamin.
Roro - 01.10.2011 at 17:59  
Sorry but i dont like the new opeth. and the video is.... no comment!
dr.death - 05.10.2011 at 13:46  
Absolutely love the new Opeth which is actually old school progressive. They knew it was going to piss off some "fans" and they don't care one bit. Any band that dares to take on the task of exploring their talents instead of rehashing the music over and over gets huge props from me. At least Opeth know who their real fans are now.
