Damnation (2003)

Opeth

Metal

Buy from Amazon.com

Rating 8/10

Buy from Amazon.com

Regardless of the fact that Opeth was formed in 1990 as death metal band, "Damnation" is their absolutely metal-free album. This Swedish band always stood aside of mainstream and was strongly attracted by progressive metal, but this album exceeds all my expectations. Actually this is not purely Opeth's work, but their collaboration with Steven Wilson, a leader of Porcupine Tree, and I'm sure that exactly Steven's influence made this album sounding so gently and purely, without metal riffs and brutal vocals. I consider "Damnation" a really successful result of such extraordinary collaboration.
