Top 10 Opeth SongsThurman91

By far the Opest song! No contest! The vocals are superb - Akerfeldt pulls off the death growls and clean singing flawlessly. It's memorable because even the heavy parts are catchy... And there's a proggy instrumental section that sounds like super mario bros! Truly an awesome song. If you're trying to decide which Opeth song to try, pick this one.
Best thing I like bout this song is the lyrics, such a sense of mystery in them. The Lotus Eater? I know that's something bout Greek mythology or whatever, where on a Greek island the inhabitants ate lotus flowers and flutes to forget about their troubles and worries and sleep... Awesome song as well. Particularly grew on me after seeing it live.
This is a masterpiece, great riffs and an awesome Mikael's solo, it should be in the top 10, in the end it's very hard to make a top ten list of Opeth, there entire discographie are great
This is the weirdest list ever. I only think two of the top 10 songs deserve to be up there whereas this song and Windowpane and Harvest and a few others are way tf down here!V 2 Comments
This song is higher on my all-time songs list than it is on this list - danyul11
Why this is not in the list? Come on guys you can't be serious!
This is the song that made me feel Opeth was something different
Man, this is the best Opeth song!V 3 Comments
Shocked I had to add this. This is without a doubt the most powerful piece of music in the whole entire real of music. The way the lyrics and music flow together like a story, the way the atmosphere takes you to a different world, and the way each riff continues to get better until the God-like outro which is the pinnacle of music altogether... This is not only the greatest Opeth song, but the greatest song ever created.
It is simultaneously the most beautiful and angry song I've ever heard. An absolute masterpiece, it being this low on the list is just wrong in so many ways.
How is this not number 1? Best Opeth song ever and one of the greatest songs ever made.
One of the best songs.. with the best outro!V 5 Comments
Really surprised to see that I have to add it, should have already been in the list & ranked number 1 too... - Flash667
The feels In this song get me going.. Chills..
It's scary how relatable these lyrics are (to me at the very least) and the brilliant Instrumentation only adds to that relation.
"Gone through days without talking--there Is a comfort In silence.
So used to losing all ambition--struggling to maintain what's left..."
*As I lay on my bed under the spell of a catatonic state, tears start to run down my face, to my neck, and chills paralyze my spine.*
This one may well be the best song ever created. Will stay with you until you die. Its also the most underrated song of the century.
Can't understand why this masterpiece is so bloody low on this listV 18 Comments
One of Opeth's simpler songs, I still get emotional every time I hear it. The chord progression starting at 1:44 is in my opinion, their absolute best.
This is just one of those songs by Opeth that seem to be really underrated. Everything in this song is on point. One of their best.
This should definitely be in the top 10. An often overlooked track that might just be one of Opeth's most brilliant pieces.
One of the most overlooked tracks in their discographyV 4 Comments
Quite possible the best song ever written, by opeth or anyone. Epic sweeping trekking across a mountian intro, beautiful verse to intense transition to prechorus to insane chorus to funky breakdown to mind blowing solo to face melting bridge to quite possible the most beautiful opeth outro riff ever created. A little more formulated as far as opeth is concerned but in every other reguard more than adequately displays all the awesomeness that is opeth, no joke incredible I can only assume it isn't top 10 cause it came out before blackwater park please do yourself a favor and listen to it
How is this song the lowest ranked on still life? I would vote it the best on the album and top 5 overall - noahc98
If I could only take one Opeth song with me to the grave, it would be this one.
This song should definitely be in the top 10.V 1 Comment
I think the reason that all the Still Life songs are too low is that the entire album is so good that the fans have many favorites to choose from. It is my favorite Opeth album. This is the song on the album I look forward to the most, as it follows Face of Melinda so perfectly.
Amazing melodies, really defines progressive death metal as a serious genre. Influenced so many other bands.
Probably my favorite from Still Life along with The Moor and Moonlapse Vertigo. For me, this is one of the definitive Opeth songs, with amazing riffs, excellent variety and piercing vocals. I just wished they played live more often.
amazing tune.. one of the best opeth tunes in my opinion.. - theapostleintriumph
Incredible atmosphere. Have never heard anything else like this yet, besides other Opeth stuff.
This song equals the class of BlackWater park! Do people really don't understand music anymore?
Awesome riffs, nice tune, perfect growling!V 3 Comments
Love it from start to finish from the excellent first 58 seconds and after that it gets real
The best song from orchid.. probably the best lyrics mikael has ever written.. the song has an epic atmosphere with amazing vocals and guitars. and an excellent solo.. amazing progressive black/death metal
This was the first Opeth song I have ever heard, and I was instantly hooked. I was one who used to listen to baroque/classical/romantic music exclusively... But the technical nature and attention to detail in this song instantly made me fall in love.
This song sound very natural and has a great atmosphere, by far my favourite Opeth song, also the growls are very unique here
The outro is the best opeth moments in my opinion! And the rest is cool, the little solo at 4min and that intro...
Guys, listen to this song, it's very relaxing, by far not the best song by Opeth, but definitely worth mentioning! I voted for this to get it a little higher.
How come this song is not in the top ten? It is one of the best opeth songs. Especially the piano part which comes in the last is simply fantastic and the guitar riffs that follow blend together perfectly. This song is surely underrated.
What is this doing here?! Should be in top 15!
The Chorus part is super amazing voted to help the rank!V 1 Comment
This one should be in the top 5 songs :/
I'm so shamed that this song is so low on the list. These softer songs by opeth need more recognition!

Please don't judge a band when they do something good... judge them when they do something they normally don'tV 1 Comment
Master's is my first opeth song I'd listened to. I remember when I heard it, I had to go straight to my guitar and look up the tabs to the song. One of my all time favorite Metal songs.
For me one of the bests opeth song with an amazing dark part that collide in a giant soft pillow...
Master's Apprentices in the greatest song in the Deliverance Record, Great Beggining and Ending... I love Opeth and this is one of my favourite tunes.
What is this doing here? This is top ten material.V 2 Comments
A great piece will clean guitars and amazing synth. Has a great melody attached to it. This album has shown the best melodious works by opeth till now!
A great new song from their brand new album Pale Communion. Best work till date by Mikael as vocalist. Opeth forever!
My favorite song from Pale Communion, a masterpiece to complete a very beautifully crafted album entirety.V 1 Comment
Surprised to see Advent so far at the bottom of the list. It's my one of the most favorite songs of Opeth. It has brilliant mixture of acoustic and electric guitars. Bass is totally out of this world!
No advent? What happening here?
The distortion guitar part after the first acoustic part
It's awesome.. All the way to the top!
The incredibly strong roots, from which the majority of brilliance sprouted!
One of their greatest songs with great drum work, awesome riffs and a powerful, blackened feel.V 1 Comment
Great atmospheric song from Pale Communion with a somewhat theatrical feel to it, all of what makes Opeth great shines through, in particular Mikael's vocals near the end! - petrucci75hammet
Last song of the album
Best song of the album
Mikael just yelling!
Oh my god the overbearing sadness in this song?! What people this should definitely be in top 10.
This is great!... Surprised it's so low on the rankings... Hope they all vote... Thank Yo
This song is a masterpiece...
Absolute melancholic beauty.V 2 Comments
It may be their newest song but it's not terrible - someguy12345
