Ghost of Perdition.

I had been a serious metalhead for most of my teens and early twenties, swinging around to prog rock. However, years later I wanted something with a bit more kick than the usual fare I listened to (e.g. Rush, Porcupine Tree, that kind of stuff), and Ghost of Perdition delivered a swift kick in the nuts that left me hooked. Was exactly what I wanted to hear at that particular moment.

Benighted was the very first opeth song I listened to. Then their cover of Iron Maiden's Remember Tomorrow, from there the real hook was... I honestly can't remember for sure, but when I really took a deep listen into Deliverance (the track), I got addicted. Then I just went backwards. April Ethereal was one of the most epic black metal pieces I've ever heard to this day, of course advent, BRI, and all of morningrise was perfection. Then Orchid. To this day, I can't do anything the rest of my day properly without listening to in mist she was standing at least once. It's been like that for 5 months now.

Thanks, been lurking about here for some time now. And yes, I am very far from most things. No matter though, when I can, I _am_ going to see Opeth live ;o

In My Time of Need...I'd gotten GR and Damnation when I was curious about Opeth, and listened to that and was an instant Opeth fan. That or Ghost of Perdition. Nevertheless I was hooked.

First tune I ever heard by Opeth was actually Remember Tomorrow (Maiden cover). Thought I'd check 'em out and I picked up Morningrise. I think MAYH had just come out, so picked that up a few weeks after absorbing Morningrise. Way back then, they were the first band to make me respect TEH BLAK METULZ REBEL GROWLZZZZ!!!


...and so here I am...

First song I heard from them was The Grand Conjuration in the radio back in 2005, but what got me hooked was Harvest!

I think Closure was the song that got me into Opeth. I had heard Damnation before, but for some reason I thought it was boring. Also, I wasn't and still for the most part not into death metal vocals. But after that the Damnation grew on me, then Ghost Reveries grew on me, and now I like all their stuff.
