One of them, “Width of a Circle,” was shared by the Swedish prog-metal band on Monday (March 28).
The deluxe 3-CD extended edition of In Cauda Venenum contains the English version of the album on Disc 1, the Swedish version on Disc 2, plus a third disc of bonus tracks in both languages — “The Mob” (“Pöbeln”), “Width of a Circle” (“Cirkelns Riktning”) and “Freedom & Tyranny” (“Frihet & Tyranni”). The digital release organizes the collection into two halves; vinyl will be available. Pre-orders are now available.
Listen to “Width of a Circle” near the bottom of this post.
The refreshed In Cauda Venenum also features new artwork by Travis Smith, the artist behind the original cover art. A special “Connoisseur Edition” of the expanded edition features a vinyl-only album mix previously made by Opeth bandleader Mikael Akerfeldt.
