Release Year: 2008
Artist Origin: SWE
Style: intricate dynamic progressive death metal

up until mid-nineties nobody has been playing death metal thus unusual way - harmonious and dynamic, progressive and intricate, intense and emotional on the same record; this stunning debut longplay [1995] was by all means pioneering, blending acoustic and electric guitar passages with the dual personality of Mikael Åkerfeldt's vocal outpouring, let alone the brave title and outstanding cover artwork; prior to this Opeth had no official recordings, so the seven tracker sounded and looked like a bolt from the blue; recent gatefold sleeve black 180g vinyl edition comes with Into The Frost of Winter bonus from unreleased demo recording [1992]
