Performer Notes
  • Opeth: Mikael Akerfeldt (vocals, acoustic & electric guitars); Peter Lindgren (guitar); Martin Mendez (bass); Martin Lopez (drums, percussion).
  • Additional personnel: Steven Wilson (guitar, piano, Fender Rhodes, mellotron, background vocals).
  • Recorded at Nacksuing Studios and Studio Fredman, Gothenberg, Sweden.
  • Best known for pushing the boundaries of progressive death metal, Sweden's Opeth have been gradually moving away from the traditional low-growling sound, towards a cleaner vocal style. Though their previous six efforts involved a signature balance of heavy and mellow sections, it wasn't until they started using the production of Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) that they began to shine. 2001's BLACKWATER PARK broke the band to a wider audience without taming any of their metallic fury. A subsequent limited edition contained two bonus tracks that hinted at a quieter version of Opeth to come.
  • DELIVERANCE (2002) picked up where BWP left off. But it was only the first of a two-pronged attack. DAMNATION is its counterpart and has all of the intensity without any of the bombast. Clean electric and acoustic guitars and vocals dominate the record. Wilson's keyboard touches add shading and color to the bleak Opethian soundscape--casual listeners might not even recognize this as the same band. Opeth continues to force changes to the definition of metal, as DAMNATION may be the quietest metal album you've ever heard.
