They combine soft, melodic vocals and melodies with crushing riffs and intense vocals.

I don't really know how to wrap this review up, because I could really just go on and on trying to describe how great this music is.

Opeth are one of the best bands to ever record an album, and this album just steadied my belief in that.

This is my favorite Opeth masterpiece. Initially, when Opeth was still new to me, it was my least favorite. It has the dreariest, grittiest production, few acoustic guitar parts (and they are mostly short), and seems even more sonically oppressive and bleak than anything else they've done. But this album is AMAZING. It is a concept album about a ghost who seems not to realize that he's dead and he observes his lost love after his passing. "Karma" seems to be where he becomes aware of his demise and it's crushing (the scream!!! it's all about that scream). _My Arms, Your Hearse_ is heavier than _Orchid_ and _Morningrise_ but no less melodic and captivating in its evocative, spellbinding musical progression. From the haunting sounds of rain and ethereal piano notes of "Prologue", to the tidal wave of melodic riffs in "April Ethereal", to the longing, forlorn acoustic ending of "When", to the hellfire assault of "Demon of the Fall", to the smothering finality of "Karma", to the soul-melting, aching melodies of "Epilogue", MAYH is a masterpiece with few peers. No fan of progressive metal should be without this, and anyone who didn't really "get it" is strongly encouraged to give it another chance.

Ok, I just want to know why anyone would review this cd and give it less than 5 starts? This is one of the best CDs I have ever heard: musically or lyrically. This album is totaly amazing from start to finish. I am going to agree with the one who wrote the review stating that they were probably inspired by the Edge of Sanity "Crimson" CD. The concept behind My Arms, Your Hearse is strung together, telling a story, but was probably a good idea it was split apart. I love epic songs, especially "Crimson", the longer the better, but My Arms, Your Hearse does not fit as one song, although it all ties together to tell a story.
Mikael Äkerfeldt is an amazing song writer, wait until you all hear Opeth's new album "Still Life" (Releasing in Europe on October 18th), it is phenominal! The story behind My Arms,Your Hearse is just as amazing as the music. It looks as if Mikael is talking about someone who has died and went back to Earth in the form of his sprit. He starts out at his funeral and tries to reach out to his soulmate. IT is just one twisted love story. I haven't spent too long analyzing the lyrics, but what I have grasped just lets me know that Opeth is truely one of the best bands in the 90's.
All I can say is this CD is just pure metal and total energy. Opeth has the ability to capture music like no other band. They are an amazing group with lots of talent. Listen to the drummer on this CD, he is a primary example. Opeth couldn't have done a better job on creating this CD if they spent five more years on it. "When" is perfect, the only song I have ever heard and said "there is not one thing I would change about this song, it is flawless from begining to end.

Opeth may be the most difficult band to 'get into' for someone new to their catalogue. Unlike most metal bands that manage to release two, maybe three albums that are considered solid, Opeth has released 8 albums, each of which has stood the test of time in a genre whose audience's tastes seem to be in constant, dramatic flux. Discounting Orchid and Morningrise, both respectable early works that are mandatory if one is to comprehend Opeth's musical evolution, that leaves six albums to digest. Add to this the fact that Opeth writes epics that demand repeated listenings, and it becomes clear why listening to Opeth is indeed a formidable investment.

As many reviewers have said, My Arms, Your Hearse is a great album for someone new to Opeth. I would argue that Blackwater Park and Still Life are equally worthy of such accolades, but it is my belief that to get someone hooked on a band, you must play them the band's finest work, which for Opeth is My Arms, Your Hearse. One could easily write ten pages about Opeth. Their music reaches a compositional depth and complexity that no metal band I can think of has managed. Certainly Opeth takes inspiration from a handful of predecesors, but from the diverse assortment of bands and performers that is their influence Opeth has truly created a genre within which only they perform.

My Arms, Your Hearse is not Opeth's most polished album, nor, I would argue, is it their most thematically complete (see, Blackwater Park). What makes MAYH Opeth's finest work is a combination of several factors.

Opeth stands at the vanguard of progressive metal. The band's first two releases, Orchid and Morningrise, were brilliant and challenging progressive albums. The band was defined by its dynamics, which pitted vicious metal & death growls against soft acoustic music. My Arms, Your Hearse, Opeth's third release, is a bit different. It is the band's most musically aggressive album, no doubt. The recording quality is very dense, almost like a din of chaotic fury. Against Opeth's complex songwriting, beautiful sensibilities, and progressive nature, most bands' music sound like the banal, empty persiflage of mere imitators.
My Arms, Your Hearse is a concept album, told through Akerfeldt stunning lyrics, which are full of brilliant imagery and involved poetry. The story is quite enigmatic and probably open to a number of interpretations. It seems to tell the story of a plaintive ghost who watches his beloved deal with the pain of his death. The liner notes pack all the lyrics into a huge block of text, so it's difficult to read. However, it is interesting the way Opeth has put it together. Each song ends with the name of the next song worked into the lyric. For instance, "The Amen Corner" finishes with the line, "The final spark that blew life into me, the demon of the fall." The next track is called "Demon of the Fall." This is an innovative way of forming lyrical "flow." Also, the lyrics for "Epilogue" end with the line, "Telling...of the beauty of its prologue." This means that everything begins all over again. This coheres with the "seasons" theme running through the album. "Prologue" presents the coming of spring. "The Amen Corner" opens with the line "white summer.
