Double 140-Gram Red Vinyl Reissue

Originally released in May 1995, Orchid is the debut album by Swedish progressive metal band Opeth. Opeth never recorded a demo. Instead, Mikael Åkerfeldt sent out rehearsal tapes to several labels, but never received a reply. However, Samoth (of Emperor) had sent out a tape of unsigned bands to Candlelight Records. It only had a few seconds of “The Apostle In Triumph,” but it was enough to get the band signed.

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.
