This was my first Opeth experience, a long time ago now, there are no faults on this album at all, from beginning to end every song is carefully crafted and shaped in to an epic exceeding 10 minutes in every case, dark, cold, atmospheric and stunningly professional.
Opener "Advent" is my favourite Opeth song, it fades in to a brilliant riff, leading to a series of acoustic passages followed all by another heavy riff. The bass work by Johan is outstanding, being a bassist I like to sit and play along with this album, I'm getting there!
"The Night and the Silent Water" is another masterful work of riffs and acoustic passages, the first of which really catches me, one of my favourite on the album.
"Nectar" is an unpredictable song, this is true of many Opeth songs, it is not restricted to the usual "verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-chorus" song structure, and still a brilliant song.
Now comes a 20 minute long song called "Black Rose Immortal", this an enormous epic, heaviness and acoustic both included, only twice as long as your average Opeth song, simply brilliant. This is where I feel "Morningrise" beats "My Arms Your Hearse", sheer beauty. "Black Rose Immortal" does not even for one second get boring, the whole 20 minute experience is a vast musical ride, worth every second, second only to "Advent".Read more ›
It’s hard to explain to the non-Opeth fan what it is that is so special about the band, but one of their finest aspects is the constant sense of contrasts that runs through their music. From acoustic balladeering to virtually Death Metal riffing, soulful singing to vicious growling, often within the same song, there is no band around who can match what they do. The music is rarely over-technical but it just always works so perfectly it is a delight to listen to. Virtually all of their songs extend well over the ten minute mark (some reach double that), allowing the band to explore the sense of light and shade within the song.
One of the main reasons that Morningrise is my favourite Opeth album (a view held by many other of their fans as well) is the presence of their masterpiece “Black Rose Immortal”. The twenty-minute long epic incorporates more fine ideas than most bands have during their entire careers, and is one of the finest songs ever recorded by any artist in any genre.Read more ›
