Burdens a great song from watershed. I don't usually like Opeth's videos though just because they always cut the songs. A video for Heir Apparent would have been better though considering they've shot a video for one of the slower songs off of the album already

Well, the video wasn't interesting. But I really understood the songs's strength after seeing it.

I like the new album a bit more now.
And the keyboard solo... Damn, that guy really knows how to play fast!

Didn't like it. It was posted in the shoutbox a few days ago, and at least in that version, into and end were cut out. That takes much of the atmosphere away.

I know, the organ sounds so clean and spot on. Very rare to find a player like that these days.

It's a good video. I'm not usually a big fan of videos but it's good.

I like the video, it's very nice. And Burden is one of my favourite songs from Watershed.

This song is sooo beautiful... one of the best ever of Opeth. those leading guitars dwelling till the end are simply wonderfull.

Per Wiberg's beard is nice. I didn't watch the video in its entirety, but I might sometime later. I hope I do sometime later.

Normal video, but wondeful song, their songs are from anothr world.
videos make songs popular usualy, but this time, NOP, Burden is popular becuse of the song, not the video.

OMG, Lasse Hoile!!!!11 I HAVE to watch this now!

Really good video with amazing photography!!! obviously an awesome song as well!!! but i think they took away some of the nicer if not nicest part of the song in the end....still i guess its nonetheless!

Such a good song, but didn't really like the video. I hate when they cut their songs short . . .:nono:

Boring video with one of my least favorite tracks from the album....
Elio - 16.11.2008 at 10:34

I love this song. I love how smooth the guitar riff is and the keyboard solo. It's classic Opeth.

That's not a bad video, but with a song like Burden every kind of video would be likeable
