Opeth Lyrics


Founded in 1990 in Sweden by vocalist and guitarist Mikael
Akerfeldt, Opeth specialized in fusing progressive-rock,
folk music, and heavy-metal.
Orchid (Candlelight, 1995) cast Akerfeldt's death-metal
growling and Peter Lindgren's epically distorted guitar in
roles (mid-tempo interludes, acoustic melodies, long and
tortured songs) that were not traditionally associated to
heavy metal, despite sounding like heavy metal.

Morningrise (Candlelight, 1996), their masterpiece, refined
that manner, particularly in the monumental suite Black More...

    ------ About the song Black Rose Immortal performed by Opeth

I might have literally cried when I first heard the acoustic parts from the 9th minute.My hunger for music has reached a point where no other band(except maybe dimmu)can satisfy.Long live Opeth.And lastly the beautiful vocals by mike in the clean state and the blood curdling growls have absolutely no competition.

Pretty amazing | Reviewer: buttstamp
    ------ About the song When performed by Opeth

This is the second best song off the album and is pure poetry. To settle the debate, Opeth is actually Progressive Death Metal, or Technical Death Metal. They Are just excellent with brutal death growls, and crystal clear clean vocals. A masterpiece of a band.

Redemption in Death | Reviewer: HierbaMustia
    ------ About the song Dirge For November performed by Opeth

I think it's clear that this song is about suicide. The first paragraph talks about the bleak loneliness felt by the speaker.

The second, describes his determination to end his/her life: No longer willing to accept the pain he/she must face, despising the self to the point of feeling disgust for his reflection in the mirror. There's no turning back now, a firm slit in the flesh will end the chance of facing new ordeals.

The last paragraph describes death. Blood drains off, dripping into a pool in the ground. Death is seen as redemption, the final sleep that deprives of all sorrow... One last carress to compensate all the ones denied in life, like the wings of a dove that take you into the sanctity and peace of nothingness.

SPOILER My opinion on the lyrics | Reviewer: Viktor Ingi
    ------ About the song The Lotus Eater performed by Opeth

I think it is a story of a man that witnessed his friend die or killed him in a moment of madness. He got so shocked after that he became alcoholic. He stops to move out oh his bed only sleeping and drinking (alcohol). He is gone to apathy an state of indifference, or the suppression of emotions such as concern, excitement, motivation and passion. An apathetic individual has an absence of interest in or concern about emotional, social, spiritual, philosophical and/or physical life. Has also lost live purpose
Lotus eater the name of the song was people in Greek myths that lived on an Island and ate only specific flower that made them dull and sleep in an peacefull apathy

Deliverance, A nips review | Reviewer: The Nipple Wrangler
    ------ About the song Deliverance performed by Opeth

This is one of my personal favorites. The fast paced intro and then slow, clean, emotionally charged melody mixed with a heavy, thick DELIVERING riff that makes you beg for more Opeth. Great solo and just a great over all composition. Then it ends with a beautifully drawn out ending. Opeth forever, they are the best band I've ever heard.

    ------ About the song Deliverance performed by Opeth


This song for the victims of the devil to those who fall victim to trick them because they are confused and they are lost, Satan comes to paint for them a road to deliverance which is the path of hell and then end up with him in eternal torment but the victims realize it too late
sorry for mistakes

    ------ About the song Deliverance performed by Opeth



This song for the victims of the devil to those who fall victim to trick them because they are confused and they are lost, Satan comes to paint them through Aalkhas which is the path of hell and then end up with him in eternal torment but the victims realize it too late

The GR masterpiece | Reviewer: HInges Lament
    ------ About the song Hours of Wealth performed by Opeth

This album is a concept, every song is a part of the story except isolation years. It is the story of a mans journey with the devil. After the events in Reverie/HF the character is lost, he isn't in servitude to the devil anymore but he doesn't know where to turn. no family no friends, and no path forward. this song is pretty much a gateway to The grand conjuration where he goes back to the devil.
