Opeth Burden Music Video

Burden from the 2008 progressive metal opus by Swedish metal veterans Opeth.  The song sees Per Wiberg employing a Hammond organ sound on his synth to stunning effect, the song writing and arrangement here is just fantastic with Mikael Åkerfeldt and Fredrik Åkesson dueling the guitars beautifully.

Burden Lyrics:

I, once upon a time
Carried a burden inside
I sung a last goodbye
A broken rhyme I had underlined
There’s an ocean of sorrow in you

A sorrow in me

I saw a movement in their eyes
They said I no longer knew the way
I had given up the ghost
A passive mind submit to fear
And the wait for redemption at hand

Waiting to fail
Failing again

If death should take me now
Count my mistakes and let me through
Whisper in my ear
You’ve taken more than we’ve received
And the ocean of sorrow is you

Opeth - Watershed - Cover
