So... this one is an incredibly good song. In fact, one of the most enjoyable songs I've heard in a while, but my favourite moment begins at 8:22... that melody is capable to break you... and combined with Mikael's beautiful (also demonic) voice, it's impossible not to touch you in some way, very, very strong ending.
i like the intro of this song (it's also the outro part of the previous song "reqiuem"). what's the exact music type of the outro? it seems like acoustic kelt music but i am not sure about it. any ideas?
One of my favorite things about Opeth is how I've been listening to them for nearly 2 years and I still don't know every song inside and out. I was playing their discography on shuffle and for some reason this song just caught my ear this time around. I've never liked it much but now it's suddenly great. This has happened with quite a few of their songs for me...Heir Apparent, Godhead's Lament, Forest of October, and Ghost of Perdition. I love it.
