Deliverance was the first Opeth song i heard and it made me a fan .
I listened to it for 2 months before i liked it enough too buy Blackwater Park. I liked that album for about 3 months before falling in love with it.
Blackwater Park. And the same day: The moor, Funeral Portrait, Drapery Falls and Requim
Bought Opeth - Deliverance cos i was bored... and cos it was a good digipack
Didnt like Wreath... Press Track >>
Deliverance.......... i was blown away...
Listened to the cd rest of the week...
Bought Damnation,BWP,Still Life since then
Now Opeth is like top3 favourite bands (together with meshuggah, the haunted)
Morningrise, MAYH, and Orchid are far better than Deliverance, better than BWP, and slightly better than Still Life.
EDIT: And you shoudl stop using so many smileys. Lol.
benighted hehe, then I learned it
I wasn't a fan of "Death Metal" at all. I heard 'Harvest' and loved that, then I moved onto 'The Drapery Falls', then 'Bleak', then I was a fan of all of "Blackwater Park". I've got "Damnation", "Deliverence", "Blackwater Park", and "Still Life". I need to get "My Ams...". I Love it all. Harvest opened the doors to Opeth, and Death Metal. Now I can put away those Yanni CDs.
dirge for november was my first
First song was April Ethereal.
I was very impressed.
Moonlapse Vertigo... right when Mike screams after the first melodic verse..... wow that did it for me....
My first song was bleak. I stumbled upon it while downloading music in a p2p fileshare program. I actually downloaded it on accident and was going to delete it but decided to give it a listen just to see what the heck it was. At first I didn't think it was anything really special...until the clean vocals came in. The sheer fact that anyone could have such a good voice and such a deep growl was like a new revelation. I went out and bought bwp the following day, which almost made me shit my pants the first listen. It literally made almost my entire metal collection look like complete shit. I thought "what the fuck? how is it even possible that I didn't know about this band?" I haven't stopped listening since.
After being told to download some Opeth on a message board I went out and got a 3 min clip from The Apostle in Triumph. I believe it was the part around the 8 min mark where Mike starts the clean clean vocal spot. I really liked what I heard so I went and got the Celtic Frost cover and didn't like it at all. I hated the death vocals. The piano kept my interest and the musicianship was enough to retain my interest. A little while later BWP was released and since I was hearing great things about it I decided that I would one day get it. Months later I finally broke down and bought it. The atonal intro and piano outro of The Leper Affinity and Harvest really grabbed my attention. It took me a few weeks to adjust to the growling vocals but now I'm at the point where I look forward to hearing a well defined growl. I burned my friends copies oF BWP and eventually they got hooked as well. As for the time I first started listening to Opeth I'd have to say...late 2000.
