Opeth-Ghost Reveries (2005)
2005 album from extreme progressive titans, Opeth. This album sees Opeth in all their progressive death metal glory, with, for the most part, a very dark sound. The other key elements here are that they have turned to an even more progressive creative mode, creating moments that remind the listener of bands such as Dream Theater, King Crimson,and even bands such as Uriah Heep. The other addition here is with a new full-time member, a keyboardist, adding a touch of atmosphere that turns great progressive metal into AMAZING progressive metal, complete with mandatory rock organs and mellotrons. Of course, this album includes both the death metal aspects of Opeth's music, mixed with the brilliant acoustic sections, and ethereal, atmospheric parts. The atmosphere on this album is spectacular. Overall, another absolutely amazing Opeth record. Highly recommended! Roadrunner Records.
