CD Reviews
Blackwater Park
Review by Mike Korn
If you're the type of person that hates a sunny day or scowls at kittens playing, Opeth might be the band for you. These low-key, cerebral Swedes specialize in an epic form of heavy metal that is strong on gloom and foreboding.

Ghost Reveries
Review by Josh Turner
This album is not as dire as Deliverance or as docile as Damnation. Instead, it finds itself in the middle layers of their muddy dark waters.
The Roundhouse Tapes
Review by Julie Knispel
Sweden’s Opeth has been on an upward career trajectory ever since releasing their first album (Orchid) in 1995.  Successive releases have seen them honing their impressive instrumental, vocal, and production skills to a deadly razor-sharp edge, moving from label to label with their growing fan base following them.

Opeth - Lamentations DVD
Review by Mike Korn
There really is nobody quite like Opeth in the musical world today. Defying every expected convention, they are as truly free in their musical explorations as the most magnificent bird of prey. For confirmation, one need only watch "Lamentations", the new DVD from the Swedish non-conformists.

Opeth - Live in Rosemont, IL May 13, 2008
Review by Greg Olma
Opeth are one of those bands that all my friends have been trying to get me to see. Well, I finally experienced them live as they were part of the Progressive Nation Tour.

Bloodbath - Resurrection Through Carnage
Review by Mike Korn
Rising from the moldy earth, the corpse of true Swedish death metal refuses to stay dead and buried. Its lust for blood can never be quenched and though it may sometimes slumber beneath the soil, it will always erupt from the grave and stalk human prey.
