Damnation

I've been following Opeth Since Still life, and now I have all their stuff and I'm happy I own the whole collection. I love damnation as a sorta different stride for Opeth, exploring more of their melodic talented side, excluding their hard metal talents. In my opinion, they did a great job of being melodic, softer and more honed in on the other side, what do you guys think of their new album?

I love the more mellow stuff they do, espically the acoustic stuff...But I was dissapointed with the album. I don't know how to put it..but I didn't like the songs the made for it. I was hoping for a more "Patterns in the Ivy/Still day in the Sun/Face of Malinda" kind of sound. But I liked the fact that they are expermenting alot. Rare in metal bands.

Yeah i know exactly what you mean, i thought the acoustics would be more akin to their other stuff, but after a little while I started realizing what the album was for and in of itself, and that they decided to elaborate more on the actual mellow side. After it grew on me it become my second favorite by them. first being Blackwater park just cause it was my first metal album ever and it was a random pick and I've loved it ever since.
I like where they took it after I realized they weren't trying to be mellow like the acoustics like in thier other songs.

Also, have you heard any Katatonia or Nightingale?

I liked Katatonia for their more modern type sound, I'd still classiy them as some form of metal just because of their earlier days when they were more black. I like them totally seperate from the regular metal I listen to.
The Nightingale could be said of the same. Dan Swano is one of Mikael Akerfeldts good friends so they share some of the same talents, one of them ebign a good clean singing voice, the Nightingale is all Swano's clean stuff, but its still good. Not every song on NG is awesome, but a few really stick out. If i had to place money I'd still stick with Opeth Bloodbath and Edge Of Sanity

October tide? Thats a will do, Is that one of the earlier Albums that also had Akerfeldt on it by any chance? I've heard he's on it but I dunno if he sings or produced or what.
I'll have to get it online because my stupid Newbury Comics doesn't carry older Katatonia, and I was the only one who got a copy of Vital Remains Dechristianize

i thought Damnation was a pretty good album, but i was hoping for more of a "harvest/face of melinda/to bid you farewell" sound as well. but it's still a good album to listen to if you want to relax/chill out.

btw, has anyone picked up the "lamentations: live..." DVD? i just got it a couple days ago and i think it kicks ass, although there are a few too many shots of mikael's nostrils....

lol
I've yet to pick it up, but I want to soon, I take it its well worth..
actually scratch that, that was a stupid question.
If I had to rank Opeth from my favorites, 1 being the best and 7 being still totally awesome, i'd say it goes as such:
1.BWP
2.Damnation
3.Deliverance
4.Morningrise
5.Still life
6.Orchid
7.My arms your hearse.
that was tough to make a choice on though, i revised it so many times haha.

No no, October tide is a band. It's a side project with 2 of the Katatonia members and some other dudes. I like them better than Kat. Great Doom Metal with alot of feeling.

And wasn't this thread just about Damnation?

What album is Demon of the Fall off? That's an alright song. As you could probably tell, I'm not the biggest Opeth fan.
