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.

The Power of a new Opeth lineup is here... Maybe the most powerful and evil opeth song ever... A masterpiece!

Without doubt my favorite Opeth song, powerful, emotional and quite simply evil, genius

A song this good being at 41st position shows how great opeth is..!

Why is it only 40th? It would among my top three

47 The Apostle in Triumph The Apostle in Triumph

I guess its not that popular because people only listen to the recent opeth albums but this song is legendary.. can't believe I had to add it.. - theapostleintriumph

My favorite Opeth song, from the folky intro to the final guitar solo, nothing less than sublime, needs to be much higher on the list

Amazing end solo.. One of the best Opeth solos I've heard..

:/ this is a masterpiece!

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!

The way this song starts off and the way it fkn ends.. just epic.. I listen to this song a 1000 times a day may be :o

50 Coil 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

51 In the Mist She Was Standing In the Mist She Was Standing

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...
Just perfect

52 Goblin Goblin

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

If you listen you will vomiting!

53 When When

10th!? No way this one deserves 10th place. Easily one of the most powerful Opeth songs ever, especially with that second-to-last line, "When can we scream instead of whisper? "

A very beautiful and sophisticated song, it has several different complex and chills-inducing tunes throughout its fascinating story.

How any other song on earth can overcome this song, I have no idea. Really it is a shame it's low on the list..

This song made me love opeth for the first time,
it says everything!

54 The Twilight Is My Robe 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!

55 White Cluster 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

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

57 Reverie / Harlequin Forest Reverie / Harlequin Forest

There's something about this song that cannot be heard! A feeling of being hung in the middle of life and death, where the night is long and the sun is gone, forever!

What is up with people not paying attention and adding songs that are already in the least, this is literally in the number 10 spot right now - germshep24

58 Beneath the Mire Beneath the Mire

I like this song especially the intro riff I can't explain the feeling listening to that song! Its pure epicness itself listen to the sample and make your opinions! One of their best in my view

Just starting ti get right into Opeth and this was the first track to draw me into the Mastery. Great intro pulls you right in.

Interesting start and one of the best choruses in any song ever.

Best song off Opeth's best album. Enough said.
