A Piece of Metal History

From Mikael… Re-Posted from Opeth’s Facebook Page

“Just started reading this one with great interest and a fair amount of nostalgia. We only put out the one album, “Still Life” through Peaceville Records back in the day. It was interesting times, and that’s the album where I think we found “our” sound more so than what we’d done previously, without putting down the stuff on the 3 first albums we did.

Our relationship with Hammy and Peaceville ended sooner that expected and we were more or less forced over to Music for Nations who in turn put out the records that cemented our good reputation in the metal scene: “Blackwater Park”, “Deliverance” and “Damnation” as well as our first live DVD, “Lamentations”.

If you’re after a slice of extreme metal history as it was, then give this one a read. Fun times with Paradise Lost, Anathema, My Dying Bride, Katatonia, At The Gates and Darkthrone… And us!”
