This is one of the greatest songs of all time...
Man, just listen to last 4 min of this song, these 4 mins are the best tunes I've ever heard in my life...
That's enough I think...
I just wanted to put a good Periphery song up hereV 1 Comment
I love this riff! You can really hear the work and musicianship that went into this song
This song got me in love with Prog rock/metal AND Dream Theater.
Progressive at it's best. Sounds of Tabla and Sitar blending into very heavy riffs - mindblowing.V 1 Comment
Gorgeous song. I really miss Kevin Moore. Rudess may be a better keyboardist technically, but he doesn't have half the emotion and passion of Moore.
The way he talks to himself combined with of ruddess's sad and slow piano. amazing!
Kevin Moore's piano, actually. Moore was their first keyboardist, and actually wrote the lyrics to this song. He left the band right after the release of Awake, and Rudess didn't join the band till '99.
Sucks to see this and other great DT songs under Pull Me Under - BlackSabbathIsLife
Should be in the top 3 at least. This song not only shows everything about the amazing band that is opeth but it also shows everyone the beauty that the genre of prog death metal can create. Is an obvious number 1.
How come this is not on the list? Dream Theater's dominance is evident here. But people should know that they are not the only progressive metal band.
This part "Blew hope into the room and said: You have to live before you die young" is just epic!V 1 Comment
This is clearly Opeth's greatest song ever made! I can wake up to it, live to it and also die to it! Greatest song I've ever heard in my entire life!
This is clearly Opeth's greatest progressive sound, clean vocals, sick guitar solos, ups and downs... This should be in the top 10!
Pure prog here, plus a lot of Old-school influence here
I hoped this in a better position
W. A. Mozart says: " It's all ok" and asks Beethoven : "Symphony x X is the alphabet or roman number which means tenth? In my opinion is the tenth and say thanks".
Deserves to be higher. This song is one of the original Prog Metal songs (older than almost every one on this list, unless I'm mistaken) and features so many great elements of the band:
Geoff Tate at his absolute best
Variety in tone, key, and overall sound
Powerful backing vocals that make this song a blast in concert
Great instrumentals by every member of the band
And everything else about this song makes it one of the very best.
Opeth best prog band ever. This song top 3
As we know there are big names such as: RUSH, YES, Pink Floyd, DREAM THEATER, and others. They even through very long and complicated journey to be able to introduce their music to eventually succeed as a top band is also feared by other musicians in his era.
Similarly Ballerina struggling with passion and sincerity to be able to introduce and commercialize Progressive music in the country. Until finally Ballerina prove themselves as champions elect 1 and as best Progressive band in Indonesia in '11 AMI AWARDS 2008 in Jakarta.
Ballerina comes with originally progressive music
Wow progressive metal from indonesia. Amazing m/V 3 Comments
What to say? Steven Wilson is probably the best composer out there since 20 years.
Amazing beautiful peaceful what more can you ask for
Top 5 at least
