Does Opeth introduce the extreme metal world to the glorified complexities of progressive rock? Or do they merge the dynamic, anti-song qualities of prog with an aesthetic of death metal? I guess it doesn't matter, but whatever they're doing, they're doing it brilliantly. Based on a blend of Swedish death metal, melodic progressive rock, and acoustic interludes, they can't be classified easily. In the end, though, classifications are irrelevant. To sum the band up quickly, Opeth presents a ceaseless onslaught of dynamics, where a grinding metal assault (with death growls) can be exchanged for a gorgeous acoustic lull (with soft "clean" vocals) in a heartbeat. However, though the change happens very often, it never becomes a cliché of itself. It's perfectly natural and fits well, never disrupting a song's flow. Apart from Opeth's musical brilliance, they have a knack for conveying real emotion and beauty in their music. This album also just about has the coolest title ever - Morningrise.
The album features only five songs. This is no EP, however. Impressively, the shortest song here is about 10 minutes ("Advent") and the longest track is an incredible 20 minutes ("Black Rose Immortal"). Or at least that's what the back of the CD case says. It's hard to believe it, though. After all, when listening to the music of Morningrise, time slips away and long epic songs end far too quickly. 10-minute songs seem to end in 4 minutes... the 20-minute opus feels no more than 10-minutes. When the album is over, the listener is not exhausted...one is compelled by Opeth's seducing power to play the album again and again.
It is not, however, an easy album to put together on the cerebral level, even considering their epic nature.

Much like my other Opeth reviews, I have to say that listening to an album of this caliber and then attempting to convey the feelings it arouses in the form of words is both foolish and futile. Nothing can prepare you for Opeth. Although the band has attracted its share of detractors now, I must say that any music listener with an open mind and long attention span should find hours of perplexing enjoyment here. Those who fail to understand, power to ya, but don't pollute this website with tasteless reviews on why you hate Opeth.
Morningrise is different from every other Opeth album. Each has its own appeal, something you look for as you're listening. With My Arms, Your Hearse it is the aggression and heavy riffs that I search for as I listen. With Still Life I listen for the enchanting vocal performance given by Mikael Akerfeldt. Blackwater Park has everything. Aggression, melody, awesome growling, awesome singing, beautiful acoustics, sweet riffs, and progressive song lengths. On here it is just the riffs. Oh, the riffs. And the twin guitar melodies. Amazing. The lyrics pale in comparison to future albums', although they are still good, and Akerfeldt has a different style of singing here. It's more of a black-metallish high shriek than the deep inhuman growl of late, and his clean vocal performance is less catchy and haunting. Therefore the guitar leads and segues into acoustic dreamland are what I look forward to when sitting back to this eclectic journey of a CD. The mood given by the amazing guitar lines on Morningrise make it my favorite, with Blackwater Park a close second.
Morningrise is also the least 'metal' of all their albums. When compared to MAYH or Deliverance, it is very soft. While those make Pantera and At the Gates sound light, Morningrise is like a heavy thrash album.
