Top 10 Opeth Songs


The Contenders: Page 3

41 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!

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.

44 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.

46 Epilogue

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

47 Nectar
48 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.

49 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..

Most underrated Opeth song ever..
1. The Apostle in Triumph
2. The Twilight Is My Robe

50 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

51 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

52 Goblin

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

If you listen you will vomiting!

53 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!

54 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

55 Slither

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

56 The Throat of Winter
57 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.

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

59 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
