Opeth long ago dropped the “death” from their progessive metal equation, but the Swedish titans continue to make imaginative music using the power smooth dynamics they always have. The quintet’s Stateside tour for 2019 In Cauda Venenum was postponed by the pandemic, but better late than never. Supporting the exceptionally strong new LP Hushed and Grim, another concept album driven by personal loss, Atlanta’s Mastodon’s own distinctive vision of prog metal makes for a perfect compliment/counterpoint. Swiss occult gospel metal act Zeal & Ardor opens in support of last year’s political EP Wake of a Nation and next year’s self-titled new record.
