Opeth - My Arms Your Hearse Colored Vinyl 2LP
Opeth My Arms Your Hearse Colored Vinyl 2LP
Opeth has spent over two decades steadily amassing a body of work that is at once possessed of a fervent and unrelenting devotion to aesthetic progression (and perfection) while simultaneously scaling the summits of power, mysticism and might aspired to by the group's hard rock forefathers in Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin.
The band's roots in the doom-laden shade of occult-infused Scandinavian death metal and dark romanticism are undeniable and will never elicit apology. However, band leader, singer, guitarist, songwriter and long-running member Mikael Åkerfeldt has consistently reshaped the pathway forward for his artistic vehicle without sacrificing the hard won spiritualism of previous endeavors.
Opeth's groundbreaking first three Candlelight Records studio offerings - Orchid (1995), Morningrise (1996) and My Arms Your Hearse (1998) - are the perfect documents to experience the early years of this now legendary band and witness firsthand the albums that cemented the group's place in the metal big leagues.
Opeth began work on the conceptual suite My Arms Your Hearse - with noted Swedish producer Fredrik Nordstrm - at Studio Fredman in the Summer of 1997 and it was issued to critical acclaim the following summer. As Opeth's third studio effort and first international release, the album exposed the project to a wider global audience and marked the beginning of a shift in the band's sound, focusing less on guitar harmonies and more heavily on progressive metal riffs.
