Blackwater Park

Blackwater Park

With their fifth album, Sweden’s Opeth redefined what death metal can be. Marrying technical metal with shimmering acoustic passages and vocals both harsh and clean, Blackwater Park is a boldly crafted epic. “Harvest” and “Patterns in the Ivy” confirm songwriter Mikael Åkerfeldt a master of subtlety, with sweet harmonies over gentle guitar. The dense metal dynamics of “The Drapery Falls” and soaring 12-minute title track, which jumps from brutal riffage to atmospheric fingerpicking, prove Opeth’s prog metal power is all in the journey.
