Honestly, I gotta say that one of the things I've liked about Opeth's lyrics is that right from the start, on Orchid, there are songs about love, and it's fucking metal without being retarded. In fact, love is a rather common theme throughout the albums (both concept albums, really, are about love), and it takes talent to write about love in a way that is believable and not totally lame. Never mind keeping it metal. I remember when, back in the day (maybe in reference to Metallica?), I read that when a metal band starts singing about love, the end is nigh. That's never been the case with Opeth. Thank God, too.
