Opeth: Deliverance And Damnation

Album Review

Prog metallers’ revered double dose revisited

Following up an album as acclaimed and adored as Blackwater Park was always going to be tricky, but these two albums (recorded concurrently but originally released separately) did the job superbly and remain much-cherished gems among the Åkerfeldtian faithful.

Deliverance remains Opeth’s darkest record, a churning maelstrom of malevolence that contains some of the band’s greatest ever riffs, most notably on the title track and Master’s Apprentices
