3 stars Do not start with this one! This statement shows that this album is not like the rest. This is their debut and encloses the fewest Prog elements. Orchid is a complete Death Metal album, yes there are some of these parts Opeth got famous for but not this much, yet. What you get here is melodic death metal. I for one like it very much even if I dislike death metal in general, but that's what Opeth is all about, you love them even if you normally don't like the death metal thing. Their weakest album...yes, but for me, as a fan, it is still a good one. BUT caution: If you like to get into the worls of Opeth you'll be better off by starting with "Blackwater Park" or "Still Life". If you don't like heavy music at all, don't touch this one, try another Opeth album, Damnation for example. But this one is a good death metal album and the only pure eath metal album I like.
