To summarise, there really is nothing to criticise on this album, all I can say is please buy this as I truly do not believe there is another band around today that can come anywhere Opeth.
My Arms, Your Hearse features a heavier overall sound, cleaner production and fewer mellow acoustic parts. The album contains three instrumental tracks, "Prologue", "Madrigal", and "Epilogue", and one mellow track, "Credence", which is devoid of heavy guitars and death growls. This was also Opeth's first concept album. Åkerfeldt wrote the lyrics for this album before the music was written. The album concerns a character who dies and becomes a ghost. The narrative on the ghost's existence revolves around the woman he loved. Frustration and suspicion make the character restless as he watches his loved one after his death, his soul in constant turmoil as he does not believe that she genuinely grieved his passing. Though his ghost's actual presence remains undetected, she feels a great sadness, and remains unwilling to accept his death. The progression of the album can also be seen as linked to the progression of the seasons, the final song ending with winter, and leading back into the first song with the beginnings of spring.Read more ›

Another great album from Opeths back catalogue. If you like
Death metal mixed with prog rock you should love this.
