Orchid (Abbey Road Half Speed Master Reissue)
Opeth has received massive critical acclaim for their combination of progressive influences and annihilating Swedish death metal. These colored 140g re-issues are a must for fans and collectors alike, having experienced a loving re-master by none-other than Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Amorphis, Sepultura), with guidance from Mikael Åkerfeldt (frontman from Opeth). The records have been cut at half-speed at the infamous Abbey Rd studios by Miles Showell (ABBA, Beatles), and all artwork carefully restored by Dan Capp; designed the way the band originally intended them to be. Strictly limited quantities!
There are few bands that can or will match Sweden’s Opeth. Since forming in the tiny Stockholm suburb of Bandhagen in 1990, the Swedes have eclipsed convention, defiantly crushed the odds, and, most importantly, crafted 12 stunningly beautiful, intrinsically intense albums to become one of the best bands on the planet.
