Just a day after signing Paradise Lost, Nuclear Blast Entertainment have wasted no time in securing the signature of Swedish progressive legends, Opeth. The band says: “We’re happy to confirm that we have indeed signed a deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment and will be putting out our 12th studio album Sorceress via our own imprint, Moderbolaget Records,” states Mikael Åkerfeldt. “The decision was made in Markus Staiger’s (Nuclear Blast kingpin) ridiculously potent Porsche going at 150 mph somewhere in the south of Germany. We’re happy to be part of the NB team and look forward to a fruitful relationship.”
The band are currently putting the finishing touches on their new album, Sorceress, which is expected to be released later this year via Moderbolaget Records/Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
