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

overall favorites
Blackwater Park
Bleak
Grand Conjeration

Favorite chill / Instrumental
Windowpane

Favorite BR()()tol
Demon of the Fall

Thanks

To be perfectly honest, i only really like 1 Opeth song.. The Grand Conjuration, but in return i think it's absolutely brilliant.
Hisham Al-Sanea
they have some good songs in their almost albums
The Uncreator
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.

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 really love the Morningrise and Orchid albums ohmy.gif But all albums are great!

My favourite songs are :
Forest of October
The Apostle in triumph
Black Rose Immortal
Demon of the Fall
Karma
Serenity painted death ( that song makes me soo evil lol xD)
The lepper Affinity
The Funeral Portrait
Blackwater Park
Wreath
A Fair Judgement
Master's Apprentices
Death Whispered a Lullaby
Ending Credits
Ghost of perdition
The baying of the Hounds
Reverie/Harlequin Forest
Heir Apparent
Hessian Peel

This are the songs I would give a 10+ all other songs get atleast a 10 xD
I also could have copied the whole list of their songs xD

Btw Jeff0803 do you mind if I copy ur Opeth sign tongue.gif?

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

If your talking about Steven Wilson he is a genius in my opinion and I think he only had a positive effect on the Opeth sound. If you think the bands not as heavy as before he got involved check out the song Wreath. They played that at Progressive Nation when I saw them and it nearly had alot of the dream theater fans crying because they couldnt handle it haha. It was actually pretty amusing. There were a bunch of old farts that came to here some progressive rock and they were getting their faces blasted off by some brutal death metal, the terrified expressions were priceless laugh.gif

Oh and Mark, I actually stole the sig from someone on the ultimatemetal.com opeth forum so its only fair I let you steel it from me, but theres some other really cool ones on there you should check out first if you want an opeth sig
Juan M. Valero
Ghost Reveries is a great album, for sure, and the song Deliverance is pretty cool too !!!
Gabriel Leopardi
My favourite one is Damnation. However I like the more extreme stuff a lot too...

heh everyone is intitlled to their opinion tongue.gif on the other hand im a fiend for Porcupine Tree, so when Opeth began mixing chill with heavy and still managed to keep everything evil i was absolutly impressed smile.gif their aren't too many chill/evil bands around.. (if their are id like some names please). Opeths ability to mix heavy and soft music is one of the things i love about opeth, because its just not found in other bands, the great conjeration is an awsome example of this.
OrganisedConfusion
Porcupine Tree drive me insane lol. I'm forced to cover one of their songs and it sends me to sleep it is that dull. I think the song is called Shallow? Possibly that or something similar. Opeth I really loved their first four albums and Blackwater Park was just about ok but after that they went seriously downhill. Ghost Reveries was a slight return.
Toni Suominen
I own all of their albums, and I think each is just brilliant, but If I would have to pick my favourite I would go for Still Life.
Many beautiful songs and the concept is so wonderful and brilliantly planned.
Fsgdjv
Still Life or Blackwater Park. Or MAYH, or any other. Except Deliverance, it's the worst imo, but I still love it.

And, how can Steven Wilson have made Opeth softer when both of the heavy albuyms he produced were heavier than Still Life?
OrganisedConfusion
Still Life was very dark and haunting though and still there style. After that album they went poor I thought. But that's my opinion. I hate Steven Wilson. Not everyone will I know but I do. I still listen to Opeth's first 4 albums however.
PassionPlay
The only Album i own with Opeth is Blackwater Park and i think it is awesome !
I like A funeral portrait best atm smile.gif
shellshock1911
I saw them last night on Progressive Nation, and am gonna have to say, the new album is gonna be crazy! They played Heir Apparent, and it was better than any of the other songs they played to me, like The Baying of the Hounds, Wreath, etc.
