Top 10 Opeth Songs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Patterns in the Ivy

A masterpiece indeed...
Strange no one mentioned it!

62 Face In the Snow

This is one of the best opeth songs I've ever heard. I wonder why no added this

Because it is a special edition track

63 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

64 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.

65 Hours of Wealth

What can say about the guitar solo in this song? Amazing feel and melody...

I feel like this song perfectly describes the greatness of Opeth. Although it is a very soft song, it has some progressive elements combined with excellent singing and songwriting from Äkerfeldt and some beautiful guitars and keyboards. It has the greatest sense of mood among almost all of their song, and truly stands as the best off of the album.

Needless to say.. this is opeth's best song
Eargasm instrument, and very good lyric

66 Sorceress

Best music from Opeth I've heard until now.

This song is brillant

Great song

This album is similar to pale communion
Not bad

67 Moon Above, Sun Below

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

68 In Mist She Was Standing

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.

69 By the Pain I See in Others

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

70 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

71 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

72 River

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.

73 Famine
74 Still Day Beneath the Sun


75 Bridge of Sighs V 2 Comments
76 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".

77 For Absent Friends

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

Should be higher

78 Eternal Soul Torture

Album is fine but I don't like this song. So unnecessary. - BekoT.
