Well, what have I got to say, ok, well 6-7 years ago, when i was around 13, my friend introduced me to this band, but by that age I was into Slipknot and the likes... It took a bit of time for me to like this band, because after a while I started disliking Death/Black Metal, and eventhough today I really find Death Metal boring and repetitive and stupid, and lacks any sense and it's sjut bangbang and more bang well OPETH is JUST TOO incredible! First I think a song like BLACK ROSE IMMORTAL (my favortie of the band and my favorite song EVER) to be able to play for 20 minutes straight! Who can say they arent good, and jsut the way he can go from the "Demonic" screaming to that soft emotionnal voice is so touching! MORNINGRISE should be bought, it is a MUST for any METAL compilation, and for ppl that dont like metal, listen to a song like TO BID FAREWELL and let me know if it isnt jsut ... INCREDIBLE... the sound the voice, it's jsut, it gets to your heart and youw ant to cry and pour your eyes out! FACE OF MELINDA (on the STIIL LIFE album is just marvelous, i'd play it as a slow at a wedding!) and then the album DAMNATION, simply irrisistable, because it isnt even HEAVY METAL anymore, it shows to waht extent this band is a REAL band!
And yes I have to agree, the songs are SLLLLLOOOOOOWWWW, but what better then to lsiten to OPETH on a rainy day, a sunny day, a happy day, a depressing day? they have songs for any of my moods!
I own:
and right this afternoon, I am going to buy MY ARMS, YOUR HEARSE (hopefully the store has it!)
And to anyone out there looking for the greatest metal band ever, please at least take the tiem to downlaod a song or two, download : BLACK ROSE IMMORTAL, TO BID YOU FAREWELL, FOREST OF OCTOBER, THE DRAPERY FALLS, at least try ti, and then go BUY the CD's!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars BUY IT! Overview of this Great Album May 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
Opeth pulls through (as usual) with this masterpiece. From what I can makeout, the 5 songs were originally recorded in 1996, but the album was released in 2003. Here's an overview:
Advent: 10/10 Perfect. This 14-minute song is a flawless piece of musical brilliance. It has everything: soft, emotional parts, heavy metal parts, and pure genius.
The Night and the Silent Water: 9/10 Solid and very awesome. The song spins in metal and acoustic ping pong. At about 10 minutes into the song, Mikel whispers the title in the ending sentence.
Nectar: 10/10 This song starts with a simple drum beat, then picks up into the enduring metal riffs, separated by relatively small acoustic melodies. At about six minutes into the song, a two-minute acoustic break comes, showing beatutiful singing. This is followed by my favorite part. A dueling metal/acoustic tradeoff occurs until the song breaks off suddenly into a sweet metal jam, ending the song. This song is also brilliant and one of my personal favorites. It has a cool guitar solo and everything needed to make a song great.
Black Rose Immortal: 10/10 The monster of Opeth. OVER 20 MINUTES LONG! It begins with a drum fill and a screaming Mikel. Awesome! Then, of course, the short acoustic beauty. Then a very Iron Maiden-like riffs sets it off again. METAL CAN"T GET ANY BETTER! But then, the song stops for the acoustics. The acoustic riff is then turned into some really heavy stuff. I dig this song the whole way through! It turns really fast, then really slow and beautiful for 4 minutes, then turns metal for a few minutes, then turns back acoustic, and yet again fast metal. Then, slow and really minor and sad! After 19 minutes it turns really, really HEAVY! I NEVER GET TIRED OF THIS FRGN AWESOME SONG!

4.0 out of 5 stars An improvement over the debut May 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is a marginal improvement over Opeth's very solid debut. Akerfeldt's voice sounds stronger, deeper, and he makes greater use of his melodic voice. The separate parts of the songs sound better blended together. At this point of Opeth's career, you can actually almost recognize the words growled out by Akerfeldt without reading the lyrics booklet.
Advent (9/10): Some great riffs (of course, it's Opeth, after all). It's really quite amazing how they can go from one great riff to the next. Almost any other band would waste all their songwriting potential using as many good riffs in one song as Opeth uses, but they have not yet had a shortage of creativity on this front. The first acoustic section makes use of some really complicated timing, and seamlessly leads into another heavy section. There are parts where the transition between the heavy and the light is so beautiful that you have to take notice of it. Very few bands out there can do this so well. There is a lot more acoustic on this song than on the previous album, and it is a very good thing Opeth decided to go this road with their music.
Night and Silent Water (8/10): There's a (too?) short part right near the beginning which has both a heavy guitar and an acoustic playing at once. The effect is pretty cool. There's another awesome acoustic section towards the middle of the song. The ending whispering is very different, but it works.
Nectar (7/10): As far as I am concerned, the opening riff to this song is one of Opeth's classic 10 riffs. It just has this great, powerful, gallop to it. The rest of the song is decent, fairly standard Opeth fair. The change from the melodic section into the final riff will get you by surprise.

4.0 out of 5 stars overrated by opeth fans, but underrated by the world
Even at this formative time in Opeth's career, they were still making some very unique, emotive metal. Read more
