4 stars Morningrise by Opeth was the second album released by the band. Opeth was still playing a very heavy black metal and melodic death metal sound back then, and mixed in with the progressive rock influence, it turns out pretty good. The album is very long, with the album including one of the longest songs ever recorded by the band, the epic Black Rose Immortal. The song shows everything the band is about, the death growls, the heavy guitar, the acoustic parts, and the clean singing as well as very melodic parts. Songs like the mentioned Black Rose Immortal and the opening song, Advent, are very good and I thought they were the best songs on the album.

I wouldn't start with this album if you were getting into Opeth, but it is a good album and it's one of my favorite albums that the band has to offer.
