OPETH

     

Brought on together by guitarists Peter Lindgren and Mikael Akerfeldt in 1990, Opeth hit their native Sweden by combining more of a progressive influences to their brand of death metal. With an added jolt of classical, jazz and acoustical incorporation's, it was very common for an Opeth live set to fly in several different musical directions -on top of an average song lasting no sooner that 10 minutes. Impressed by their originally while managing to not be ostracized in their surrounding black metal scene, Canalelight Records releases their debut full-length in 1995 which was appropriately titled "Orchid." Following a revolving line up of bassists and drummers didn't stop the band from releasing their second album "Morningrise" in 1996 and embarking on a brief tour with Morbid Angel. Century Media took notice and not only licensed Opeth's first two albums for the United States, they also planned on releasing their next album on both sides of the Atlantic. With the recruitment of bassist Martin Mendez and drummer Martin Lopez as their settled in rhythm section, Opeth's third album  "My Arms, Your Hearse" was released in 1998. "Still Life" was release in 1999.  Blackwater Park followed two years later.
