Top 10 Opeth Songs

61Face In the Snow

This is one of the best opeth songs I've ever heard. I wonder why no added this

Because it is a special edition track

62Hours of Wealth

What can say about the guitar solo in this song? Amazing feel and melody...

I feel like this song perfectly describes the greatness of Opeth. Although it is a very soft song, it has some progressive elements combined with excellent singing and songwriting from Äkerfeldt and some beautiful guitars and keyboards. It has the greatest sense of mood among almost all of their song, and truly stands as the best off of the album.

Needless to say.. this is opeth's best song
Eargasm instrument, and very good lyric

63Credence

The ending guitars are so hauntingly beautiful

Credence has such a weird and creepy vibe, it's one of the best in MAYH.

64Moon Above, Sun Below

Best song off of the newest album. Definitely deserves a mention on this list.

65I Feel the Dark

It sounds so pristine and pure... Even, the vocals do... Not in the top 10 but deserves to be higher... Might be here because of people's distaste of Heritage

This song got me into Opeth.. I found this while listening to Satriani and Petrucci! From thereon it was Opeth all along! Thanks Opeth

No clue why it hasn't been voted for yet, deserves to be in top 20

Best song of pale communion in my humble opinion. Great evolution. Beautiful acoustic intro, gorgeous vocals and harmonies and the ending is very sinister and evil sounding. Lots do other reasons why this song is one of opeth's best, but can't list them all, phenomenal song.

74Den Ständiga Resan

I thought I had heard it all with "Blackwater park", "Still life" and "Ghost Reveries", their three best albums on this list, and then I tried "Watershed". It rapidly ranked #1 in My personal top 5 Opeth's albums, and from all the songs this was THE song. Simply amazing. Give me shiver every time I listen to it. Way better than "Burden".

78Circle of the Tyrants

Great cover of a Celtic Frost song!

79Derelict Herds

The list is incomplete without the song.

80For Absent Friends

This is a short, jazz influenced instrumental track from deliverance. Very calming and relaxing. Definitely worth a listen.
