Music on Vinyl is thrilled to announce the release of Opeth - Blackwater Park (2LP+ DVD) (MOVLP084)
Accompanying the 2010 Legacy Edition of the album, Music on Vinyl will issue the album as an Expanded Audiophile Edition at the end of April.
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!
Filled to the rim and handled with the utmost care, we present:
- The album as double audiophile vinyl in gatefold sleeve
- 1 bonustrack: THE LEPER AFFINITY (Live)
- 8-page booklet with new artwork and liner notes by Mikael Åkerfeldt
- Bonus DVD with a 5.0 mix of the album as well an interesting 30 min. 'Making of the Album' documentary.
