3 stars A little introduction.I'm glad that my 1st review is for an opeth album because maybe is my favorite band.Well,some people consider Orchid the most metal album from them.It's logical because it is also considered when it came out one of the gems of doom/death metal.My favorite tracks are:In mist she was standing,silhouette,forest of october,the twilight is my robe and requiem.Almost the whole album!This album has more death metal vocals and screams than clear.I don't have problem with that because I like death/black metal.There are progressive moments in the album like the long atmospheric period from Under the weeping moon.The strange rhythms and many changes(in musical climate and in time signatures)also exist.I believe that Orchid deserves a listening and for people that who don't like death metal vocals.My grade:7,5/10
