Top 10 Opeth Songs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Will O the Wisp Will O the Wisp

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.

62 Credence Credence

The ending guitars are so hauntingly beautiful

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

63 Moon Above, Sun Below Moon Above, Sun Below

Best song off of the newest album. Definitely deserves a mention on this list.

64 I Feel the Dark I Feel the Dark

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

66 Atonement Atonement

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 20

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.

68 Eternal Rains Will Come 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

Love it when Akerfeldt scream: "RISE TO SUBMISSION! "

71 Ending Credits 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

72 Famine Famine

74 Den Ständiga Resan Den Ständiga Resan

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".

Great cover of a Celtic Frost song!

The list is incomplete without the song.

80 For Absent Friends For Absent Friends

This is a short, jazz influenced instrumental track from deliverance. Very calming and relaxing. Definitely worth a listen.
