Product Description

Product Description

The new album from Opeth, Ghost Reveries, is 66 minutes of staggering new material. Frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt puts it this way: "There's no other band on the planet like us." Believe it. This is set to be not only the Swedish metal album of the year but possibly THE metal album of the year.

By Paul McNamee TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 8 Oct. 2008
Format: Audio CD
How I see it, there are three top Opeth albums, and I'm hard pressed to pick a favourite. 2001's Blackwater Park is often considered the benchmark release, and is certainly definitive in terms of their sound. 2005's Ghost Reveries sees the band at their most diverse, and this year's Watershed is overflowing with moments of absolute sonic perfection. Seeing as its still 2008, I'll plump for Watershed for the time being. But there's no doubt that every time I revisit Ghost Reveries, I end up doubting myself.

The last album to feature the so-called classic line-up of Akerfeldt, Lindgren, Lopez and Mendez, aided by one Per Wiberg on keys, Ghost Reveries is a perfect, and I don't throw that word around lightly, swansong for those departing players, Martin Lopez and Peter Lindgren. Indeed, their work on here is without doubt the finest of their respective careers. The guitar work in particular stands out on this Opeth release, each and every song filled with luscious passages, varied playing styles, intriguing rhythm and lead sections: basically, plenty to make the CD worth any serious metal guitarist's time. Lopez' drumming too has never been better, most noticeable on tracks "Harlequin Forest" and slow-burner "The Grand Conjuration". His work on the latter song is a masterpiece of understatement balanced with sheer power, at once both timid and majestic. As and when his varies capabilities are needed, he never fails to impress.

As for those still in the fold, the praise comes just as readily. Mikael Akerfeldt is without question the best singer in all of music today. As a metal vocalist, he belongs to a select group who practice a style which is both as grim as they come and perfectly intoned and comprehensible.

Opeth to me are one of the few bands who really provide a musical experience which is unique, moving, breathtaking and dark all at the same time. I really believe that their musicianship is of a level second to none. Anyway, this album is beautiful, from the crushing and gorgeous Ghost of Perdition (which by the way i would put up there with Lepper Affinity, Demon of the Fall, Drapery Falls,etc) to the simple, stripped down, yet incredibly moving Isolation Years. The album has got a slightly different feel to other albums, theres more 'clean' singing than before but the awesome death metal vocals Mikael delivers are still there. I read in some reviews that Opeth should stick to more clean singing, the point is that Opeth are a progressive Death Metal band, so the main vocal style will allways be the Death Metal vocal(the grunts), this may take time to get used to but believe me, when u do you wont want it any other way!!! so in my view the clean vocals are the calm amongst the main storms of death metal voicings rather than the other way round. Anyway, buy this, it really is incredible, ive got everything from Morningrise onwards (i'll be getting orchid soon)

and I believe this album to be as complete and as beautiful as any of them, i might change my view in time;who knows; but for the time being I am immersed in this beautiful creation. GO GET IT!! (FAV tracks at the mo: Ghost of Perdition, Baying of the Hounds, Harlequin Forest, Isolation Years)

Ghosts of Perdition alone is worth the asking price, add in The Baying of the Hounds and Reverie/Harlequin Forest and you've got yourself a great album. The changes from growls to clean vocals are done superbly by Mikael Akerfeldt and any fan of death metal owes it too themselves to pick this album up.

Ghost Reveries is simply one of the best albums Opeth ever released, if not THE best one ever, this is what really got me into Opeth. Released in 2005, Ghost Reveries consists of eight songs which feature a variety of music styles, e.g. progressive death metal, progressive rock, even some acoustic guitar work. I love this album so much that I can't pick a favourite song from it, they're all really good and there are no filler tracks on the album whatsoever, I would say the same about all the other albums Opeth released before Ghost Reveries - Watershed and Heritage (which followed Ghost Reveries) are very good albums in their way as well but I don't think they quite have the magic that Ghost Reveries and the other albums before that had, still have and always will have in years to come.

What I like about Ghost Reveries is that it is (to some extent) quite different from all the other albums Opeth released before that, while at the same time sticking to their musical roots. One thing I noticed with this album and not on any other metal album I have bought in my lifetime, is that in some of the songs on this album (if not all of them) Opeth used a guitar tuning which I never came across until buying and listening to Ghost Reveries, the guitar tuning in question is called Open D Minor 9 (low to high string: D A D F A E), although as far as I know they mostly used the Drop D tuning (low to high string: D A D G B E) as well as Open D Minor 9.
