The Candlelight Years = Japanese = (CD)
This triple CD set is the perfect way to experience the early years of this now legendary band and witness first hand the albums that cemented the bands place in the metal big league. Opeth recorded debut album, Orchid, with producer Dan Swan in April 1994, Orchid tested the boundaries of traditional death metal, featuring acoustic guitars, piano, and clean vocals. Allmusic called Orchid "brilliant", "startlingly unique", and "a far-beyond-epic prog/death monstrosity exuding equal parts beauty and brutality". After a few live shows in the United Kingdom, Opeth returned to the studio in March 1996 to begin work on a second album, again produced by Dan Swan. Morningrise was released in Europe on June 24, 1996. With only five songs and lasting 66 minutes, the album featured Opeth's longest song, the twenty-minute "Black Rose Immortal". Morningrise was a critical success, with Allmusic giving the album four stars. Opeth began work on its third album, with noted Swedish producer Fredrik Nordstrm, at Studio Fredman in August 1997. My Arms, Your Hearse was released on August 18, 1998, to critical acclaim. As Opeth's first international release, the album exposed the band to a wider global audience. My Arms, Your Hearse marked the beginning of a shift in the band's sound, focusing less on guitar harmonies and more heavily on progressive metal riffs. Featuring the bands first three classic albums Orchid, Morningrise and My Arms Your Hearse.
