OPETH - Orchid 2LP (Half Speed Master) (Preorder)
NB! Preorder item, release May 2023.
Opeth has received massive critical acclaim for their combination of progressive influences and annihilating Swedish death metal. These colored 140g re-issues are a must for fans and collectors alike, having experienced a loving re-master by none-other than Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Amorphis, Sepultura), with guidance from Mikael Åkerfeldt (frontman from Opeth). The records have been cut at half-speed at the infamous Abbey Rd studios by Miles Showell (ABBA, Beatles), and all artwork carefully restored by Dan Capp; designed the way the band originally intended them to be.
'Orchid' is the band’s 1994 debut album and considered a classic within Death Metal/Progressive circles.
