Ghost Reveries is the eighth full-length album by Swedish progressive metal band Opeth. It was released on August 29, 2005. It was their first album after signing with Roadrunner Records. Ghost Reveries is the first album by Opeth to include keyboardist Per Wiberg as a "permanent" member (although Wiberg contributed keyboard work to Opeth's live performances starting around the time of Lamentations), and it is the last Opeth album to include drummer Martin Lopez and long-time guitarist Peter Lindgren.

The eighth full-length album Ghost Reveries by Swedish heavy metal band Opeth is the epitome of what metal should be: a work of art. The album is filled with heavy, intricate, and precisely performed guitar riffs. You can't avoid the monstrous riffs in a song like "The Grand Conjuration". As the band's main composer, Mikael Åkerfeldt successfully managed to transfer his dark emotions into all those twisted solos, surrounded then by wall of even thicker riffs. He's blending classical clean harmonies with guttural growls. 180 gram audiophile vinyl. Including 4 page booklet. View Complete Catalog.

Stepping aside from the malevolent acoustic elegance of 2003's Damnation without abandoning the textural advances, Ghost Reveries is a tour de force of creativity, power, and innovation. Alternately melodic and brutal, the album takes the band's progressive acumen to a new level while never abandoning the crunch. Vocalist, guitarist, and lyricist Mikael Åkerfeldt has become a complete poet of the dark side. With bandmates Per Wiberg on keyboards, drummer Martin Lopez, guitarist Peter Lindgren, and bassist Martin Mendez, Åkerfeldt has forged ahead into a vein of this music that moves.

Opeth has had many different styles during their career, and has been pulling them off perfectly ever since their first album. Before recording the live CD and DVD, "The Roundhouse Tapes", They came out with their 8th full length record, Ghost Reveries. This album is a certain breakthrough for this particular band, and is considered one of their greatest, if not their best yet. Many fans became hardcore fans after the release of this particular record. The first thing that I'd like to mention is the incredibly unique keyboard style and sound played throughout

Ghost Reveries, an observation by Opeth was recorded at Fascination Street Studios, Örebro, Between March 15 and June 1, 2005. Mastered at Cutting Room/Stockholm. Issued under license to Roadrunner Records from The All Blacks .

Opeth Ghost Reveries. Release date: August 29th, 2005. Catalog ID: RR 8123-2, 168 618 123-2. Only an Alright Album. Classic(al) metal masterpiece.

Quite simply, this is an Opeth album, and fans of the band aren’t receiving anything less than they expected. Opeth is without a doubt one of the most unique metal bands on the planet. Their style of creating beautiful yet brutal music has set them far apart from any band. To say the least, to say the least, they've remedied that with Ghost Reveries. With their new release, they take a nice, promising sound, and do exactly what I hope they do with it. The crushing brutality that I’ve come to love from. Devil crack the earthly shell Deliverance is not met with a gigantic letdown, but with. Foretold she was the one something that accents the song entirely. Blew hope into the room and said: a solo, a riff, some keyboards, or just a melody.
