Smooth acoustic riffing with finger-picked guitar,this one is a must-listen track from the album Sorceress.Akerfeldt's soulful vocals are a big bonus along with some great melodic solo-ing from the band.The outro is heavenly.One of the best acoustic based ambient tracks of Opeth.
Best song off of the newest album. Definitely deserves a mention on this list.
Best music from Opeth I've heard until now.
This song is brillant
This album is similar to pale communion
How is this in the newcomers? This is a great song in general. It is very melodic, epic, and beautiful, and also has some amazing guitar work. This song is where the whole band shines, especially Akerfeldt. In the mist she was standing is my favorite Opeth song, with Burden being second and either The Moor or The drapery falls being 3rd. Edit: by the way, the other comment on the song saying the same thing is another comment by me, I just posted it 2 times on accident then wrote something else. - Metalfan2112
This should definitely be in the top ten. It's very Melodic, Epic, and has some great guitar work in it. Personally my favorite Opeth song, with Burden being 2nd, and either The Moor or The Drapery falls being 3rd.
Love it when Akerfeldt scream: "RISE TO SUBMISSION! "
It sounds so pristine and pure... Even, the vocals do... Not in the top 10 but deserves to be higher... Might be here because of people's distaste of Heritage
This song got me into Opeth.. I found this while listening to Satriani and Petrucci! From thereon it was Opeth all along! Thanks Opeth
No clue why it hasn't been voted for yet, deserves to be in top 20V 1 Comment
Best song of pale communion in my humble opinion. Great evolution. Beautiful acoustic intro, gorgeous vocals and harmonies and the ending is very sinister and evil sounding. Lots do other reasons why this song is one of opeth's best, but can't list them all, phenomenal song.
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 upV 2 Comments
I thought I had heard it all with "Blackwater park", "Still life" and "Ghost Reveries", their three best albums on this list, and then I tried "Watershed". It rapidly ranked #1 in My personal top 5 Opeth's albums, and from all the songs this was THE song. Simply amazing. Give me shiver every time I listen to it. Way better than "Burden".V 1 Comment
This is a short, jazz influenced instrumental track from deliverance. Very calming and relaxing. Definitely worth a listen.
Should be higher
May not be the most complex song, but the clear Vocals are so close to your ears when you hear it, its definitely worth a mention in this list.V 1 Comment
