Farfalla wanted to turn Opeth into a funk band so ... 70s stuff I guess?

Totally amazing bass playing on the first two agreed. I reeeaally love Mendez' playing though, so I'm very glad he's with us. Especially on Heritage.

And having only two Farfalla albums makes them kind of special too.

Interesting choice also to double track the bass in Black Rose Immortal’s opening riff. Sounds sick, with the low-end pulsating line and whatever that trebly, evil funk-ish tapping thing underneath is.

Ooh yeah, sounds so good. I've always wondered about that, no musician myself but that passage sounded so different. In a good way of course!

Yeah I love stuff like that. A single section or embellishment that stands out from the rest. At least I have not heard anything done like that before.

"the low-end pulsating line"

Fuck yes. I've never really focused on how special that is.

So now it's done and it's apparently over TWENTY MINUTES long. I swear that song twists time somehow.

This is one if those cases when an open songwriting style like this actually works

Yeah exactly. It works wonders. Album is like a forest, with beautiful patterns everywhere, quickly dissolving to show new ones.

Opeth’s music can most accurately be compared to snowflakes. Every snowflake is unique; diverse; one of a kind. Each one has something special about it. On its own it symbolizes the advent of something beautiful and captivating, while as one of a flurry it falls serenely, forming a picturesque scene so stunning it defies words. Just like snowflakes, every Opeth song is special in its own right. Within an album, the music is like a flurry ensnaring the senses with emotionally charged progressive.

A classic among classics that one.

The live Roundhouse version is one of the best things that ever happened. Because bands usually don't play their early 10 minute compositions.

Yeah, [2] to that (which is Sput's version of ''Amen'').

Every track here is perfect to me.

Oo I need to watch that Roundhouse show. Haven't spun any of their live records yet. Shame on me.
