    Not on the list but I have to go for To Rid The Disease. It has the most beautiful chorus of any Opeth song ever (imo anyway). Pity they didnt do the backing vocals when they played it live but it was still awesome.

    1. I don't think Facial of Melinda and TBYF are ballads
    2. It's nearly impossible to update this thread because of the Damnation album

    With FoM and TBYF gone, my favorite Opeth ballad is Isolation Years.

    Harvest is undoubtedly the best song made on Earth.

    Not yet have I got into Credence completely, but so far my favorites are Hours of Wealth and Harvest.

    To bid farewell.The first Opeth song i've ever heard, and at that time i thought Opeth plays only that kinda music, and then i listened to When...and u can imagine how that screaming thing smashed my face lol.
    And all those songs are awesome !!!

    Benighted. When I first heard it, I couldn't belive it was even Opeth. Such a masterpiece of a song.

    Hard to decide really, most of them have been my fav at one point, but I think I have to go with Harvest because it is certainly my fav overall Opeth song at this particular moment.

    None of those...so I voted for nothing. Personally, I don't think Face of Belinda is a ballad because of the end but whatever.

    Closure is my favorite ballad...one of the best Opeth songs period.

    TBYF is a good song, but laughably over-rated. You guys just like it because it's the longest song of all the options.
