The video of Mick tracking this song is ....ing insane, too.
Hi guys, I thought I'd offer a different view point for you. I've never heard Opeth, until a week ago when I decided that I needed some new listening material for my holiday (is gotten bored with listening to the same stuff each time) so I went searching on the net and found Opeth Sorceress. So far I quite like it, I was expected lots of death metal vocals, but was surprised at the first track, normal vocals. Second track has more growl, the riffs are OK, nothing special. I may well with backwards through their back catalogue to see which are stand out albums.
Are you sure you were listening to the right album? The first track appears to be an intro track, but the 2nd, 3rd and 4th were all released as singles and they DEFINITELY do not have any growling
The track listing is as follows
2. Serenity painted Death
3. Into the forest of Winter
4. Bridge of Sighs
5. Demon of the Fall
Album is called Sorceress Principals.
1. From Sorceress
2. From Still Life
3. A demo from before they recorded any albums (assuming it's "Into the Frost of Winter")
4. A cover from Watershed era
5. From my arms your hearse
Who uploaded that where as "Sorceress Principals," and why, I have no idea!
Go for Blackwater Park if you want peak Opeth, to me it has elements from all their earlier albums.
Yeah, this is kind of the generic Opeth album. Ghost Reveries may be SLIGHTLY more accessible. I'd highly suggest avoiding the newer stuff (Heritage, Pale Communion, Sorceress) for a while unless you prefer it. Damnation is also an oddity.
