5 stars There's not much I can add to descriptions of Opeth, which is one of the more popular bands out there and the standard bearer for progressive extreme metal. Well, Opeth start with the basic foundation of dense death metal and enrich it with acoustics, folk, melancholic atmospheres, middle eastern polyrhythms, classisist rock and even jazz (and two of their albums, Damnation and Heritage, are not metal at all). But I would like to comment on Ghost Reveries, which are not revolutionary for Opeth, but my favorite album from Mikael Akerfeldt. It has the best production, sound, vocals (both growls and clean) and the most progressive structures. Not just a folk insert in the middle of a death song. One could even call it the most accessible album, if you can get past the growls. A rare example when the best all-around album is also the most accessible.
