Album Blackwater Park. Blackwater Park Lyrics. Confessor Of the tragedies in man Lurking in the core of us all The last dying call for the ever lost Brief encounters, bleeding pain. Lepers coiled neath the trees Dying men in bewildered soliloquies Perversions bloom around the bend Seekers, lost in their quest Ghosts of friends frolic under the waning moon. It is the year of death Wielding his instruments Stealth sovereign reaper Touching us with ease.

Opeth : Blackwater Park,альбом, рецезия, трек-лист, mp3, тексты песен. Opeth's magnum opus, and the record that got me into extreme metal. An essential that must be obtained by any means. The sheer beauty and musicianship that is shown here is indescribable, not to mention the amount of differentiation and diversity that can be found on every single track, from start to finish, creating a perfectly cohesive and audible work of art. This is the essential metal album, period.

Not even Bleak, the second best song on the album, with its almost middle-eastern influences and haunting guitar lines touches what The Leper Affinity is. That’s not to say of course, that it’s a bad song – it’s a great song, but pales in comparison. Harvest, the first acoustic backed number and third offering on Blackwater Park, exposes my other gripe with this album - Åkerfeldt’s clean voice. It sounds, unsurprisingly, like a man in his thirties singing with a pretty voice

Blackwater Park is named after a '70s hard rock band from Germany. The album was recorded at the same studio and at the same time that Soilwork recorded their album A Predator's Portrait. Recording information: Recorded at Fredman Studio, August-October 2000. Mastered at Mastering Room.

Generally hailed as Opeth' opus magnum, Blackwater Park (2001) has proven to be a transitional album for the band. While its earlier albums bring extreme and epic Metal, later albums are leaning heavily towards mid-seventies Progressive Rock. Blackwater Park brings you the best of both, with tons of huge Metal riffing, pre-Metal proggy hooks and dark lyrical topics. In this new direction, Opeth sounds remarkably fresh and convincing on each lengthy track, fully exploring and captivating. No less today than at the the time of the original release! 180 gram audiophile vinyl.
