Strange coincidence, I was talking to a mate in the pub last night about prog and something someone had written in The Word this month, and he’s just got the new Opeth album, and he was saying how much it sounds like early Brit prog. I know nothing much about them, so I’m going to have to check the album out. Court Of The Crimson King was the first rock album I ever heard, borrowed from a classmate at school. Still a favourite after all these years.Posted 6 years agochimptasticMember
I’ve only just got into them, after my mate kept on saying I should listen to them and go and see them when they are next touring. Which I kinda ignored for the best part of a year.
Wasn’t really convinced by the recommendation at first as it is not the usual thing I listen too. But yep am a big fan. Think Blackwater Park is my fave album. Not got the new album yet. But looking forward to seeing them at Manchester Academy on the 11th Nov.Posted 6 years ago_tom_Member
Earlier Opeth is far from death metal (though I guess orchid could be considered it a bit), it just has growly vocals. Blackwater Park is such a good song, the riffs are so fun to play as well.
Duffer I think most of the older albums may be too “metal” for your tastes but maybe give Watershed a go as I think it has more clean vocals in it, and some of the tracks have nice jazzy sections.Posted 6 years ago
