mmm best openers for me would be Ghost Of Perdition and The Baying Of The Hounds

Ohhhhh forgot about those. Damn, now you've made this choice tough!

Yea, Ghost Of Perdition is quite possibly one of Opeth's best opening songs. However, I'm also a big fan of The Leper Affinity. It's quite underrated, but, in my opinion, also one of their best.

I prefer Bleak to The Leper Affinity, but as far as openers go its excellent.

Those soft notes strummed at the beginning 'Ghost of Perdition' gives me goosebumps everytime.

The falling rain and uplifting Mikael vocals pretty much give me a raging clue, not gonna lie.

Album is one of their best, you just have to give it some time. Opeth's darkest album to date.

Mikael wrote the album while going through a painful time with his family/ band. He almost broke the band up because it was becoming a chore for him to write such eloborate tunes such as 'Wreath', 'Deliverance', and 'My Fair Judgment'. Read the lyrics as well, despressssssssinggggggggg!

I know all that, but I still think Watershed is darker, I have a few hunches for what the songs are about

The songs on Watershed seem to be a bit more upbeat, less bleak then their previous material. It's as if Mikael was having a "good time" writing this album.

The lyrics can be depressing as shit but it doesn't make him sound not ecstatic while he's singing them.

I actually have read the lyrics a few times and I will agree with you that they are indeed pretty bleak. However, I was more focusing on the music as sounding more upbeat.

in terms of music...well I can't really say which album is darker, but I know why you'd think Deliverance is the darkest

'Deliverance' was the first Opeth song I heard and it totally chnaged the way I look at music today. That was about 5 years ago. I would say Watershed is a bit moodier, kind of gloomy but glad to be feeling that way.
