5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless - a great band's greatest album April 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
Very seldom does a metal band come along that can truly mesh mind-blowing beauty with visceral power. Opeth has long been known for their ability to walk this line with probably more grace than any other band ever, and on My Arms Your Hearse their craft is at its peak.
Their grooving rhythm style is in force here, but retains some of the more aggressive rhythms of their two earlier efforts, a balance best seen on the chorus of Demon of the Fall. The result is a very hard-driving section that arouses harder headbanging than most future Opeth works. They would also never quite be as beautiful during their heavy groove sections. April Ethereal is quite possibly my favorite song of all time now due to the balance struck between that pounding brutality and awe-inspiring, majestic beauty. Later Opeth efforts tend to polarize the songs, with a monster-headbanging-heavy part followed by a stunning acoustic part. While these are also great albums, there's something special in MAYH's balance - it seems more sublime than Deliverance or even Blackwater Park.
This is the first effort by the current Opeth lineup. Bassist Johan DeFarfalla and drummer Anders Nordin had recently moved on and been replaced by the Martins - Mendez (bass) and Lopez (drums), both of whom bring entirely new feels to the rhythm section. Mikael Akerfeldt's clean voice has not matured to the fullest but is still incredibly beautiful, and his growls are as forceful as ever. Guitarists Peter Lindgren and Akerfeldt together master incredibly complex and dense harmony passages that are far more technically difficult than they sound. While their style may put off fans of pure technical flash, more thoughtful listeners will appreciate their depth and power, and may ultimately be touched in a way that few (if any) other bands can top.
There's something here for any fan of rock music. Absolutely perfect. Recommended tracks: April Ethereal (best song ever), Demon of the Fall, Credence.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Opeth's best albums.. Aren't they all??! March 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
Opeth's album, My Arms, Your Hearse, was my first purchase from these guys. I have been a fan of progressive death metal for a few years now, and I was told that I would really enjoy this group. My jaw dropped the first time that I heard the song, 'April Ethereal,' and the way that the song, 'When' connected and sounded like one fluent song. 'Demon of the Fall' is one of the most upbeat songs that Opeth does, and is a fan favorite for live shows. I recently saw these guys live and they are simply amazing. I was really happy when they played April Ethereal at the show along with an amazing set that spanned most of their career. Yes, Opeth closed the show with the ominous but amazing encore, Demon of the Fall. They always close with that song, and the pits just went insane!
The album carries the listener into a more mellow mood with Credence, but then picks up again with 'Karma.' 'Epilogue' is the closer with intense guitar parts and closes out the album perfectly. This album was my first purchase, as i said before, and I have added most of their albums to my collection. These guys are among the best of progressive death metal out there. Please buy their albums and see them LIVE. These guys are brutal and beautiful at the same time and have made a damn good album with, My Arms, Your Hearse!

Four years ago I crossed paths with some of the most meaningful, bittersweet, and breathtaking music arrainged. I am obviously talking about the phenomenon from Skogsberg, Sverge known as Opeth. The first song I ever heard by this quintet was 'When'. This is one of the few, and I must emphasize FEW songs that I ever enjoyed immensely upon a first listen. Everything about this song was enticing; the melodic intro which morphed into brutality that can give Deicide and Cannibal Corpse a run for their money, the following riff with the accompanying melody, the flawless mixture of acoustic interludes and the end of the song, where the music takes a mellow approach with vocals and guitar lines that are far beyond beautiful, so much that they often instill a hint of sadness. Throughout this song, you can almost empathize the pain and sorrow that plagues vocalist/guitarist Mikael Akerfeldt. 'When' isn't the only song on this album that conveys these emotions. Tracks such as 'April Ethereal', 'The Amen Corner' and the ultra-mellow 'Creedence' display this bands exceptional musicianship and keen ears for melody and harmony. Akerfeldts poetic lyrics and clean vocals (they still sound amazing keeping in mind he had a cold during recording) only enhance the songs beauty. This is by far the BEST Opeth album to date. You shouldn't consider yourself an Opeth fan if you don't own this album. (and a burned copy doesn't count :])

I'm torn. Should I give this album 5 stars, as compared to every other band out there? Or should I compare it to their other albums and give it 4.5 stars? Read more
