Lebanon based band HERITAGE have announced a special OPETH tribute night. The show, presented by Metal Bell Magazine, will take place in Lebanon, at The Palace Beirut on Saturday 12th October.
Tickets for the event are available at this location.
The sole purpose of HERITAGE is to pay tribute to Swedish progressive metal legends OPETH. The band covers a wide variety of OPETH songs, ranging from early progressive death metal anthems to more recent progressive rock masterpieces.
HERITAGE aim to deliver in a part of the world where OPETH might never perform, a professional show while trying to create vibes similar to those OPETH create in their live shows.
The members of HERITAGE each come from different backgrounds and it was their passion for OPETH that gave birth to this project. Stay tuned for a sixth member to be announced soon!

Team ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC has issued the following:
KRAMPUS have released a “track by track” of their entire new album, Survival of the Fittest. KRAMPUS take their lyrical themes very serious as they reflect struggles of current world issues. Check out the explanation behind each track by singer Filippo and violinist Marika.
Their first full-length effort, Survival Of The Fittest, has been produced by KRAMPUS’ charismatic frontman Filippo Gianotti himself at Udine’s legendary Blackmirror Studios and is set for release in late August 2010. Shortly after the release, KRAMPUSwill embark on their first extensive European tour, joining Wintersun and Korpiklaani on 2012’s edition of the hugely successful Heidenfest tour.
Krampus, the winter demon, has survived the repression of the modern gods. Born from shame for the mankind decay, under the cold breeze in the shades of the Alps, we join him in his dealing out of the fallible human’s just deserts. Like roots breaking concrete, we shake minds dulled by the weakness of present society. We fight fearlessly for our beliefs, aiming to give back at least some of what has been taken from mother nature. We kindle the embers hidden inside each and every one of you, choked by the lies of nations: Embers of Honour, Pride, Traditions, and Freedom.
“Heritage”, the new album from Swedish progressive metallers OPETH, entered the official U.K. chart at position No. 22 and the U.K. Rock Albums chart at No. 1.
“Heritage” is likely to sell between 15,000 and 18,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on September 20 via Roadrunner Records.
OPETH‘s new video, “The Devil’s Orchard”, can be seen HERE. The clip was directed by the award-winning New York City-based photographer Phil Mucci, who previously helmed KORN‘s video for the song “Oildale”.
