Opeth - Orchid

Opeth - Orchid (1995)
Progressive Melodic Death/Black Metal
Track listing:
In Mist She Was Standing
Under the Weeping Moon
Forest of October
The Twilight Is My Robe
The Apostle in Triumph

This album is little less than a masterpiece. A true display of Guitarist/Vocalist/Primary Songwriter, Mikael Akerfeldt.  Great riffing with long progressive songs. Essential metal listening, filled with ambiance and haunting atmospheric euphoria.
