Opeth - Orchid CD
Opeth is a Swedish heavy metal band from Stockholm, formed in 1990. Though the group has been through several personnel changes, singer, guitarist, and songwriter Mikael Åkerfeldt has remained Opeth’s driving force throughout the years.
Opeth has consistently incorporated progressive, folk, blues, classical and jazz influences into their usually lengthy compositions. Many songs include acoustic guitar passages and strong dynamic shifts, as well as both death growls and clean vocals.
Since the band’s debut album, ‘Orchid’ in 1995, Opeth have gone on to become one of the most successful Scandinavian metal acts ever, & are seen as purveyors of the Death/Prog metal Scene.
