    Probably cuz that song has a more traditional death metal style riffs and vocals, and also an amazing acoustic singing section

    I saw them live on tv during Lowlands (summer of 2006) and I was swept away, to say the least. asked my bf if he had their music - luckily he did thought he wasn't a hardcore fan but certainly appreciated their music. and now I'm a fan.

    Maybe that's because it manages to be insanely heavy without sounding too complicated and stay pretty straightforward, and has a long-enough acoustic part that it prevents the song from growing tiresome.

    For me it was the way the vox went with the geetars, i couldn't have imagined it to sound any better

    Heard the name online over and over again, decided to download a song, it was Deliverance, still one of my top 2 Opeth songs (the other one is When)

    A friend of mine came up with BlackWater Park and I liked it. so I bought a second album. I'm not totally swept away by Opeth, but I absolutely do like it !!!! At first it reminded me of the first album of The Gathering (dutch band), but they were heavier.

    I noticed that the band had an inordinately large amount of fanbois per capita on metal webboards.

    I heard the first (chilled out) half of The Drapery Falls on a free CD from Kerrang and brought the album on the strength of that. I was slightly unprepared for the start of The Leper Affinity!

    A friend gave me his copy of My arms your hearse, then I left a comment on the Opeth site and López replied, so then I asked him to recomend me a list of the songs he liked the most. That's it.

    I felt inspired by Blackwater Park cover, don't know why, never heard about Opeth before, I saw BP cd and I bought it, summer 2001. They've changed my life.
