This is not to say it's a retro album. For a start, those bands have been so comprehensively written out of rock history it's as if they never existed at all. Then there's the influence of Opeth's own pedigree. Steeped in the bloodier aspects of metal, singer Mikael Akerfeldt has no time for sweet love or fanciful flights of fantasy, instead remaining forever trapped in post-relationship depression, drowning in loneliness and regret. His voice, here never reduced to a satanic roar, drifts beautifully over and under the band's dark folk and hypnotic soft rock progressions, as chiming twin guitars, recalling Wishbone Ash, drop casually in and out. It's still intense and often moving--it just doesn't shout about it. --Dominic Wills --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
I love this album but have never got into any of their other stuff that I've heard as I'm not into their death metal sound and all the growling. Read morePublished 11 months ago by jw/mana
Either you will love or hate this album. So decide first, if you are after metal work then look for other Opeth albums. Read morePublished 14 months ago by O. A. Tan
What a contrast not a growl to be heard. Listen to this blind and you would never think it was the mighty opeth. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Richard Edward Palmer

Damnation is the seventh full-length studio album by Opeth. Produced by Steven Wilson, it was released five months after Deliverance, which was recorded at the same time. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Mr. A. J. Tennant
Superb album, just so much going on it musically.
I have it on cd but is best listened to on vinyl.
