OPETH "Fire Woman" T-Shirt BLACK
Opeth is a Swedish heavy metal band from Stockholm, formed in 1989.
The name Opeth was taken from the novel Sunbird by author Wilbur Smith and was originally spelled "Opet". In the book, Opet is the name of the location for an ancient empire which translates to "City of the Moon".
The group has been through several personnel changes, but lead vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Mikael Åkerfeldt has remained Opeth's primary driving force throughout the years. Opeth has consistently incorporated progressive, folk, blues, classical and jazz influences into its usually lengthy compositions, as well as strong influences from death metal, especially in their early works. Many songs include acoustic guitar passages and strong dynamic shifts, as well as both death growls and clean vocals. Opeth is also well known for their incorporation of Mellotrons in their work.
Opeth has released twelve studio albums, three live DVDs, three live albums (two that are in conjunction with DVDs), and two boxsets. The band released its debut album Orchid in 1995. Although their eighth studio album, Ghost Reveries, was quite popular in the United States, Opeth did not experience major American commercial success until the 2008 release of their ninth studio album, Watershed. Opeth has sold over 1.5 million copies of their albums and DVDs worldwide.
For more than 25 years, Mastermind Mikael Akerfeldt offers a wide aural palette of gloomy, complexly composed songs. And yet, or just there, Opeth is very successful. The current and twelfth album "Sorceress" rose to the one of the German album charts.
