4 stars This is the 2nd album of the Swedish band.

Opeth come from a really sympathetic debut, Orchid. Their second album appears to be the harbinger of the famous Opeth style. In fact, in this album, Opeth start to develop their unique style, which consists of Death Melodic Metal, accompanied by out-breathing brutal vocals, that is often interrupted by beautiful acoustic guitar parts and clear, crystal vocals.

Mikael Åkerfeldt composes the most of the music, and writes the most of the lyrics. His incredible ability of passing so easily from brutal to clear vocals, is noted from the first moment. Peter Lindgren is his long time college. Both of them have a special way of playing the guitar and also an exceptional sound. The album's music consists of what exactly is said at the beginning.

This marvellous style of Opeth arrives at progressive paths of extrememly difficult and technical music to be composed and played. So does appear in Morningrise. The album's production is perfect, despite the complexity of the music. Clear, dark and well done...

A must have for an Opeth fan. A highly recommendation for any prog listener. 4 stars really...
