Reissue. 2002 release, the sixth album from the Metal band. Opeth originally intended for Deliverance and Damnation to be released as a double album, but the record company eventually decided against this and released them separately, approximately five months apart from one another in order to promote them properly.

Many reviewers have claimed that this album is less musically complex than Blackwater Park. I don't think I agree with them. Blackwater Park was probably the denser, more layered album, but Deliverance has greater variety and is more innovative. BWP didn't really have a terribly great variety within the styles that Opeth utilizes: The Death Metal parts were all fairly similar to all the other Death Metal parts, as were the acoustic folk parts. And, despite what others will have you believe, the layered, dual guitar parts of BWP are still found on this album, they're just tempered with some heavier, straight power-chord rhythm work, and some choppy, highly rhythmic, nearly percussive sounding guitars similar to those used by Fear Factory. Thus, Deliverance is a heavier album, which I like, though BWP is certainly far from light and poppy. Akerfeldt vocal work has improved, though it was very good before. His death growl have got more range than it had before, as do his clean vocals. The softer parts are also more varied, frequently with a more jazz like flow to some of them, and more varied tempos in general. This results in songs like the title track and The Pain I See In Others, both of which are far more ambitious than anything on BWP. So, in short, Deliverance has got more variety, variety is good.
Perhaps the single greatest most noticeable difference is the improved drumming.Read more ›
Opeth's latest album continues to their brutal heavy passages with gorgeous acoustic interludes and a protean expanse of other flavors ranging from Scandinavian folk to jazz to 70s prog. Even though this is their sixth album, Mikael Åkerfeldt's bohemian preoccupation with creating progressive music remains as poignant as ever. While _Deliverance_ does call upon familiar elements from past albums, it likewise adds new assets to the Opethian palette -- especially the final song, "By the Pain I See in Others". After all, Opeth is nothing if not surprising.
Right now, I'm not sure how I would rate this relative to other Opeth works. Certain things are clear, however. For one thing, it the most complex musically. This makes it difficult to take in quickly, but Opeth was never musical fast-food anyway. With only six songs, all ten minutes or longer (not including a short instrumental), it is quite overwhelming to take in at first. The astonishing drumming, heaviness, and seemingly impenetrable song structures necessitate a lot of listening. Lyrically, Åkerfeldt has mined a very personal side which makes this the most emotional of Opeth's albums. The lyrics are gorgeous, haunting, darkly evocative. Ex. "Pacing further down | Familiar children's laughter | Dissonant and out of time | And their eyes are dead | Watching myself in a pool of water | Wearing the mask of a ghost | Smeared all across my skin | Rotten earth and insects." Creepy!Read more ›
By far, Opeth's newest disc "Deliverance" is a great album. However, I do not feel it is a superior album to anything they have released previously. Deliverance is a bit more experimental and has a different style than anything I've heard from them before. However, some of the songs have a familiar feeling. Here is the track list for the album: 1) Wreath 2) Deliverance 3) A Fair Judgment 4) For Absent Friends 5) Master's Apprentices 6) By the Pain I See in Others.
What I'm going to do is write this review based on the songs and give a description at the end. Starting with "Wreath". Wreath took me a lot of listening to before I finally started to enjoy this song. At first impression, this song starts off with really fast and aggressive drumming. The drumming on this disc is far heavier in sections than heard in an Opeth album before. My first few times listening to Wreath, I did not like it; this song is not too catchy! Eventually the song grew on me, but it is nowhere near as good as the rest of the tracks on the CD.
Deliverance, the title track and second song of the CD, is by far my favorite piece on this album. From start to finish this song is probably the most true to something you'd here off of the last 3 Opeth albums. What I really love about this track is the ending. The end section is similar to something you would hear on a Fear Factory CD where Opeth's drummer, Lopez, matches the drumming to the guitar riffs. Overall, Deliverance is a really flashy song that will really appeal to any Opeth fan.
Track three, A Fair Judgment, is another song I'm iffy on.Read more ›
