5 stars Opeth has not only created an interesting sound for themselves but they perfected it here. Still Life is the greatest Opeth album. Amazingly executed. There is no dual moment on here. 'The Moor' Starts the album off with an eerie acoustic part that explodes into a crazy frenzy of metal guitar, crazy bass playing and heart pounding drumming. Followed by 'Godhead's Lament' which is also as good as 'The Moor' but without the light intro. 'Benighted' is an classical guitar song which holds no screaming vocals at all. 'Moonlapse Vertigo' is another interesting song. In the middle of the song there is a brief guitar part that sounds like nothing you would ever expect! 'Face of Melinda' is another great song. Starting with a quieter part and then leading to a 2 minutes climax at the end. 'Serenity Painted Death' is one of the harder songs on the album but there is nothing lacking in it at all. The album closes with 'White Cluster'. Intensely catchy heavy riff at the beginning, a great way to close the album. The story to the album is really good as well. I won't spoil it though. Definitly worth buying.
Hambone | 5/5 |
