My favorite album is Still Life or Damnation, I can't decide which. Heavy or soft? I love the rhythms and vocals in Damnation but Still Life is full of beautiful melodies and awesome riffs. Can't decide biggrin.gif

Opeths been my favorite band for years. I was a freshmen in highschool when blackwater park came out and that cd inspired me so much. I love metal, but Opeth proves that metal can be brutal and agressive but still beautiful and emotional. All of their music is great, but my favorite album of thiers is Ghost Reveries. Ghost of Perdition is one of my favorite songs of all time. Im not really proud of it but I used to really be into shrooms and right after ghost reveries came out I spent the night tripping and listened to it three times in a row and it was an amazing experience. I had just turned 18 and had always thought tattoos were great, so I got this tattoo the next day. I have gotten some more tattoos sense then but its still one of my favorite ones. I know its dumb to get band logo tattoos but Opeth pretty much got me into music and I just wanted to show my appreciation for the great material the bands put out. I have plans to make it a full sleeve.

m favorite would probably be Deliverance, its just brutal. opeth may be one of the most well rounded bands ever, the title track on deliverance still blows my mind to this day.

Absolute AMAZING tattoo man.
General band tattoos imo are quite a risk/not too spectacular but that's more than just a band tattoo. I love the bird etc and just the general feel of it.

Opeth have been one of my favourites for the last year or two now, I really can't decide which is my favourite album from them though. I don't think it's possible for me to as each album has a different sound and NONE of them have any bad songs.
Every album of theirs is my favourite in their own way.
Oh yeah and I've seen them twice smile.gif first time I saw them still is the best show I've ever been to biggrin.gif

Opeth is absoltutly my favorite band of all time, ive prepared sketches of the blackwater park album cover to get a tattoo on my upper back. but its costly to get it done really well sad.gif so my favorite Opeth albums are a tie between

Blackwater Park and
Ghost Reveries

Favorite tracks

overall favorites
Blackwater Park
Bleak
Grand Conjeration

Favorite chill / Instrumental
Windowpane

Favorite BR()()tol
Demon of the Fall
Masters Apprentise smile.gif

i have refused to listen to Watershed other than Lotus Eater, just because im waiting to buy it.. since opeth gave us a free sample of Lotus eater on their site i figure its not stealing smile.gif

Ghost Reveries is my favorite album and Ghost Of Perdition is my favorite song, Along with Hope Leaves (off of Damnation).

Ghost Of Perdition is just an amazing song all around, the riffs are great, the solos are incredible, drums and bass kick ass, then theres the vocals. The growls are as phenomenal as ever as are the clean vocals, just a beautiful song.

Pre Muppet biggrin.gif

I mean that arse. Whatever he is called. That big girl from Porcupine Tree? tongue.gif He does my head in. It's bad enough he has to create songs but to ruin another band is taking things too far. Opeth were supposed to be heavy like before he came in doing the mixing and whatever. I used to be a huge Opeth fan. Now I just don't like them sad.gif Is the new album heavier again or not. I heard that silly fool had nothing to do with this album.

I love Orchid and Morningise. Those were my first Opeth albums, and I hold it dear to my heart.
