Top 10 Opeth Songs


The Contenders: Page 3

41 The Amen Corner

Where is this song? The highlight of "My Arms, Your Hearse"? I would place this somewhere next to "The Moor" or "Face of Melinda" on this list

42 Master's Apprentice

How come it's not on top? This song not only has epic bass guitars but awesome lyrics... Åkerfeldt did a fantabulous job! Music alone drives you crazy... Well I feel like listening to it again and again :D starting is thunderous! Guitars are just amazing! 10/10 my fave opeth song...

Just... Flawless... No words can describe the genius this song possesses... This, ladies and gentlemen, is concentrated beauty.

Have a listen of this song at night and then ask yourself why it is not the number one song...
I assure you, this will give you goosebumps...
There are plenty of songs that give me chills, but none like this...

Beautiful guitar work. Melodic vocals. Should at least be in top 10.

45 The Lines in My Hand
46 Closure

Seriously, the ending of this song is brilliant

May not be their top song but seriously guys. This song a bloody masterpiece. Check it out really.

47 The Twilight Is My Robe

The Black Metal influence is apparent in this song, and really adds to the atmosphere of the song. All 11 minutes never drag, a truly underrated masterpiece off an underrated album

A very underrated song by Opeth! So brutal, yet so calm, so full of ambiance, piece, harmony, and melody. Breathtaking.

Such an amazing song. I find my self zoned out thinking about it at work, at school, in bed!

48 The Grand Conjuration

Catchy opening followed by a memorable riff that has one reminiscing a similar tune (in vocals) from the song 'Porcelain Heart'. Between an eerie background suited with Mikael's clean vocals and strong riffs matched with death metal growls, the contrasts are eagerly anticipated and thoroughly enjoyed.

My favorite Opeth song. The lyrics, the growls, the clean vocals, and he instrumentals all go together real well to create a dark/eerie atmosphere for the story it tells.

I'm shocked that this is so low. I thought this was one of their most famous songs. Also where the hell is slither off this list. Slither was the only good song off of heritage.

This song contains my favorite riff of all time.

50 The Funeral Portrait

Good all round song (although all of the songs on Blackwater Park are good! ). The acoustic guitar in the riff at the start is class. - GhostOfPerdition

This song: not one of the usual suspects, but I keep on listening to this one! It rocks so hard!

No puedo creer la lejanía de esta canción respecto al primer lugar... está en my top 5.

51 Wreath

I may be a bit biased since it's the song that made me fall in love with Opeth, but how is this one only #41? in my opinion this song has one of the, if not the best growls from Mikael

Amazing drumming. Amazing growls. Amazing power. Perfection!

52 Coil

Another really good song which should have made it to the top 15... - Flash667

It could be somewhere on top10 this is the first song I fellt in love with opeth

53 Goblin

What are you talking about, the song is beautiful, just like most of Opeth songs

If you listen you will vomiting!

54 White Cluster

How is this not in the top ten? This song is so beautiful, that I started shaking at the end of it.

Still life is their best album in my opinion. this song is amazing should be higher

55 Ending Credits

Oh come on this is one of the best song I've ever heard in my life.

61? You've got to be kidding me, masterpiece, without the doubt one of the best song I ever heard

56 Eternal Rains Will Come

This was the first Opeth song I listened to and it was this song that made me listen to all op Opeth's albums.

This song has beautiful parts, fast parts and clean parts. The song sure is a masterpiece! - Allox

Yes - this song is awesome, and definitely one of my favourites - it's not heavy, but it has everything, what OPETH makes up

Very underrated song. The only song I truly enjoyed off of Heritage.

I agree. This is such a classic song, not only from Opeths catalog but just in general. - jb125

58 The Throat of Winter
59 Credence

This is my favorite sing of theirs, to be honest... I don't know... I just feel some kind of connection to the song...

The ending guitars are so hauntingly beautiful

Credence is the best song of Opeth...I ever heard everyday...It is a Acoustic Metal song...My girlfriend don't like metal but this song she also like...I try to cover the song...Clean vocals,awesome you Opeth...

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

60 Soldier of Fortune

It's really wonderful! This should be the number one!

Even better than original track - Rhapsody

This song is a Deep Purple cover. - Metal_Treasure

The first song that I listen from this band
They fascinate me
