Godhead's Lament (13:34)

Cover of Still Life

From Still Life and 3 other releases

Godhead’s Lament is The second Track on Opeth’s concept album Still Life and the song finds the outcast attempting to conceal his return.

He watches her from afar, only to discover that she has become a nun (godhead). Yet he still tries to get her back.

    Excellent track, although I couldn't help notiving that there's a part in the guitar solo in the beginning which sounds almost identical to a guitar line in ABBA's 'Loving Me, Loving You'.

    If music could cause epileptic seizures, that intro definitely would.
