Generally hailed as OPETH' opus magnum, "Blackwater Park" (2001) has proven to be a transitional album for the band. While its earlier albums bring extreme and epic metal, later albums are leaning heavily towards mid-seventies progressive rock. "Blackwater Park" brings you the best of both, with tons of huge metal riffing, pre-metal proggy hooks and dark lyrical topics. In this new direction, OPETH sounds remarkably fresh and convincing on each lengthy track, fully exploring and captivating. No less today than at the time of the original release! Accompanying the 2010 Legacy CD/DVD Edition of the album, Music on Vinyl will issue the album as an Expanded Audiophile Edition.-Double audiophile 180 grams vinyl in gatefold sleeve-Bonustrack: "THE LEPER AFFINITY (Live)"-8-page booklet with new artwork and liner notes.
