Opeth — Morningrise (Green 2-LP)
Double 140-Gram Green Vinyl Reissue
Originally released in June 1996, Morningrise is the second studio album by Swedish progressive metal band Opeth. Morningrise showcases Opeth’s signature style, exploring the dynamics between the combination of black metal and death metal vocals, and guitar parts with lighter progressive and acoustic elements. Morningrise includes Opeth’s longest song ever recorded (“Black Rose Immortal”), with a length of 20:15, and is the band’s only album where every song eclipses the 10-minute mark in length.
Since forming in the tiny Stockholm suburb of Bandhagen in 1990, Opeth have eclipsed convention, defiantly crushed the odds, and crafted 12 stunningly beautiful, intrinsically intense albums to become one of the best bands on the planet. They have received massive critical acclaim for their combination of progressive influences and annihilating Swedish death metal.
A must-have for fans and collectors alike, this 140-gram LP reissue has been loving remastered by Jens Bogren, with guidance from Opeth frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt. It was cut at half-speed at Abbey Rd studios by Miles Showell, and the artwork was carefully restored by Dan Capp … designed how the band originally intended.
