BLACK­WA­TER PARK

(2001)

■ Of­ten con­sid­ered to be their great­est mas­ter­piece Ð though, to be fair, itõs a de­ci­sion most dif­fi­cult in­deed in this bandõs case Ð Black­wa­ter Park saw Opeth rise from rel­a­tive ob­scu­rity and onto the worldõs big­ger stages. With pro­gres­sive-rock hero Steven Wil­son sat in the pro­duc­erõs chair, the Swedesõ fifth al­bum blurred the lines be­tween death metal, folk and jazz, con­jur­ing ethe­real land­scapes that were equally as mind-bend­ing as they were soul-bar­ing.
