Opeth singer-guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt had worn his vintage prog-rock fetish on his sleeve for so long that 2011's Heritage didn't come as such a surprise. Foregoing almost entirely the death-metal crunch and growl of the Swedish group's salad years, the disc found Opeth playing long, loose and even jazzy at times. August's follow-up, Pale Communion, finds the band further exploring its prog side—no death-metal growls here. Swedish melodic-death-metal faves In Flames and Portland, OR's Red Fang, which does melodic, boogified doom with cool proggy flourishes, set the stage.
