The original post

Posted by addiction on 22.04.2008 at 13:06
the last opeth thread reached the max of 500 posts....so this is the new one...:)
i've never started a topic before in about 4 years...but this is a good chance...:)
Opeth is a fantastic band, probably my favourite. i more or less like all their albums but i think i like blackwater park slightly more than the rest, maybe because it is the first one i ever listened to.
i am looking forwards to the new album and to see them live on the defenders of the faith tour in london in a few days!!!
anyway, you know the drill...discuss away....

I have only listened to one of Opeth's albums: Ghost Reveries (2005). I remember that I thoroughly enjoyed it. My favorite song from that album was "The Grand Conjuration." I need to buy some more of their albums, but my limited budget and procrastination has kept me from considering the possibilities.

They are in town in November and I am thinking of going to see them live, Can anyone who has seen them tell me if they are any good?

Dude, what was the last album you actually liked from Opeth? If it's anywhere before Deliverance/Damnation you can as well stuff the talks about the let-down because clearly they haven't done anything worthy your ears for years and you shouldn't be surprised at all.

My thoughts about the new album.

First of all, I bought the special edition. The first impression is "wow". The 3D album art is beautiful and the golden Opeth coin which came with it is one of those unnecessary shiny things I don't have any use for, but look so pretty.
The important stuff then, the music. Overall impression... I like it. It's so technical and so original. The thing is that I want to like it more, I love the idea and the musicianship. But I can't fool myself. It's a good album, no more than that.
There's two more things I wanna mention. The piano parts are SO beautiful. I found myself constantly to stop what I was doing and then just sat there, listening, taking it in.
What I love even more is the influences from swedish folk music. Not at all something new when it comes to Opeth. I think all their albums have some swedish folk stuff here and there. But it's more apparent here, especially in the title track and "Folklore" (what a song by the way!). During those parts I just miss our beautiful swedish summers so much and the patriotic heart starts to beat.

But I have to admit that when listening to the album, I wanna hear Åkerfeldt burst out some heavy growls. There's some great tracks, but overall I find it to be best suited for typical background music.

Where did you hear this?

I'm beginning to think Akerfeldt really has a problem with his growls now. Or maybe it is like he said in an interview that it isn't in his heart anymore to use growls.

Either way, I don't like it.

I don't like it either. It seems that Mikael's disregarde of vocal warm-ups and constant tours is starting to take its toll. I really wish it turns out ok cause I really want to see them live again.

Well, I'll be seeing them on their next European tour with Pain of Salvation and I'm really looking forward to it, but I wasn't aware that I wouldn't be able to hear some of my favourite songs, if this no songs with growls thing is confirmed.

I guess you can say that. The Road Salt series was more of a prog rock approach for them, but still remaining very true to the band. So, really, I don't care if they release albums that are not metal, they always had other elements in their music and I like prog rock. The fact that they are opening is also a big part why I'm going to this show.

I'll be sure to tell but it is only in November, so there's still a lot to go

I heard it a couple places, from people that have been to the first few shows on the tour. So far, not one song with any growling.

I would think that he is having trouble with his growling, except just about 2 months ago I watched that livestream from the concert (I don't remember what concert, but it's the one that aired both Slipknot and Opeth). And at the concert they played several growling songs, including Master's Apprentice.

I thought that The Road Salt isn't even prog, more kind of Blues-Rock'n'roll? If they do prog-rock than I'll give them another spin. Their vocalist is absolutely great.

They've always been a progressive metal/rock band, the fact that they are kinda bluesy now doesn't take away the fact that they still have those prog elements.

Set list from first show on the tour.

I've already seen them play all of my favourite songs so I'm not that sad about the more laid back approach. I don't think Mikael has any problems growling, I just think they want to play a lot of new songs and create a different mood than usual. I actually like the set list... except for Nepenthe and Slither.
