Ne vous fillez aux apparences trompeuse du cover de cet premier album de Opeth. Cet album est du bon death suedois!! Un album bien Death pour des fans de Death. On peut pas mettre opeth dans un categorie specifique donc je dirais que c'est du Death melodieux car les melodies sont magnifiques!

HASH(0x9a79f378) étoiles sur 5 Opeth's musical journey begins here. 10 janvier 2002
Par Lord Chimp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
When I first heard Opeth, I was mystified. The single, clear thought that swam through my head was, "What the--!?" "In the Mist She was Standing," the first track on the debut Orchid, explains my reaction. Glorious but heavy guitars (care of Mikael Akerfeldt and Peter Lindgren), a deft & tuneful bass accompaniment (Johan de Farfalla), the complex drumming (Anders Nordin), and the fierce growls and enigmatic poetry (again, Akerfeldt) makes it all seem like ordinary death/black metal. Strikingly melodic, yes. Intense, definitely. Poetic, of course. But otherwise conventional.
But listen more. The song is 13-minutes long. The band's apparent demeanor changes moods on a dime by dropping the heaviness for beautiful acoustic passages and softly sung vocal sections (this is done often). It's consistently very melodic. The lyrics are dark and romantic, not violent or Satanic. There's also the cover, with its nice pink flower. Quite a contrast from the blood-splattered, diabolic art of many bands in the metal section, eh? "What the--!?"
Few debut albums are written and recorded with such maturity and sophistication that they sound years beyond the incipient factors normally ascribed to a band's first release. Orchid is by far one of the most astonishing debut albums I've ever heard. The finesse and tightness embodying the band's progressive music this early in their careers is just unbelievable. I would have never guessed it was a debut if I hadn't known beforehand. I can't name many bands whose debut is this interesting...and even fewer whose debut is so original. The band has grown, obviously (their 2001 release Blackwater Park exemplifies their progress over the years), but this is still an astonishing release. Remember, it's a debut!
I don't think anyone can call this death metal or black metal. It's metal, yep, but otherwise it's impossible to pigeonhole. I agree with another reviewer that it is "Opeth Metal." The music is heavy, but melodic. It is never brutal or abrasive like, say, Cannibal Corpse (which I hate and it makes me nauseous). There are no blastbeats, no Satanic lyrics about eating babies (yes, I'm stereotyping). This is just good, melodic progressive metal -- twin guitar harmonies, heavy riffs, reams of acoustic passages, and a blend of death/black vox and low, chilling clean vox. At this stage in their careers, Opeth's songwriting style is fairly unique. Their approach makes the beginning and end of each song almost arbitrary. Since each Opeth song is a sequence of musical "scenes," the album could almost pass as one full song. Usually I would criticize a band for this lack of structure, but Opeth never loses my interest. I guess they must be doing something right. They've got a very different & good thing going on here. (Starting on Still Life, their fourth album, they would start to introduce conventional things like "choruses" [what? choruses?] into their songs.) However, if any debut characteristic is to be found, it's the production. It's still pretty good, but sometimes the soft vocals are too quiet and the bass isn't as rumbling. But that's the only complaint I have...not bad for a first album.
It's hard to discuss individual songs because there aren't really any that stick out more than others, and they are all pretty similar. Well, "Silhouette" is different...just a short piano piece. Everything else (except the interlude "Requiem") is pretty long, usually around the 10-minute mark, full of the band's characteristic diversity -- the acoustic sections, the heavy parts, the eclectic vocals....and the absolute beauty of it all. The lyrics are usually abstract musings on love. Combined with the music, they are romantic and often sad. The music often has a medieval touch influencing the melodies.
Look, I'll level with you here. I'm trying to make this album sound good so you buy it. It's truly incredible, but heck if I can eloquently convey this band's supreme greatness. It's impossible to dissect the goodness of Opeth's debut and articulate it. The best reviews for this album are those that express enthusiasm for the music without explaining all the songs. I don't do that too well...but it feels right to add my voice to the chorus of acclaim this band is getting.
Listening to Opeth is like falling in love with a woman who is beautiful in both body and mind. You are drawn to her exquisite appearance, but it takes time to really gain a full appreciation for the depth of her character. Over time, love grows, and the relationship gets more rewarding. Opeth is like that...it starts good, and gets much better over time. This is not a band that you listen to for a while then forget...it is an enduring experience, and a promise of reward. Listening to Orchid and enjoying it is like a gift that offers ineffable delight.
The true spirit of great music is here.

HASH(0x9a79f3cc) étoiles sur 5 a bold band strikes out against a narrow-minded metal scene 14 janvier 2000
Par Gwac - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Orchid is an amazing and successful debut, but should not have been unexpected considering the brilliance and maturity of Opeth. At this point Opeth came out of nowhere: no demos were needed to sign this band to Candlelight. All that was needed was a rehearsal tape. This release shows why. I never would have guessed that this was a debut album. The songs are complex and mature, the melodies are well thought out and emotional, and the production is flawless. This description ultimately doesn't do justice to the music, though. As many people say, you need to hear an Opeth album to believe it. This is my second favorite Opeth album, after the new "Still Life". The albums are years apart and really have no business being compared to each other, so I won't. Orchid strikes out against two increasingly sterile and bland genres: death metal and black metal. Many say it is a combination of the two, but it isn't. The sound is simply reminiscent of the two genres. The guitars are beautifully harmonious and clear, utilizing a "black metal sound", but really have nothing to do with black metal. Some parts of the songs use the fast, but technical aspect of death metal, but again, in no way represent death metal itself. Opeth define their own genre here, and revel in it. The music soars with delight sometimes, and at others is simply depressing. They are masters of achieving emotion through music and lyrics. It's hard to know if you're going to like this album. I've noticed that most, if not all fans of Opeth avoid trends and popular bands. If you're that type of person and you enjoy acousic guitar, black/death metal, and have an open mind, I'd suggest trying this album out. It's the beginning of an incredible band, and at the same time a testament to their genius.

HASH(0x9a79f6a8) étoiles sur 5 Amazing CD, not-so-amazing bonus track 12 mai 2003
Par Justin G. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
If you're reading this review, chances are you already know that Orchid is an amazing album. You probably even own a copy already, and just want to know if it is worth the extra money to have the one bonus track that is on this reissue. The answer, sadly, is no. The bonus track, Into the Frost of Winter, is a basically a poor quality demo recording of a song that was later incorporated into the Morningrise album. It really doesn't add anything to the album. In fact, it almost takes away from the brilliant work that is Orchid. If I were to review the regular edition of the album I would give it 5 stars easily. Because of the poor quality of the bonus track, and the high price of the reissue, I am rating this edition at 4 stars. I would recommend it only to those people (like me) who are completists and have to own every single Opeth song.

HASH(0x9a79fbd0) étoiles sur 5 Orchid: The Legacy Begins 17 septembre 2004
Par Cyanide Angel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I wish I'd have listened, way back when, as one of my high school friends went on and on about this new band from Sweden that no one knew about. I didn't, and it was 4 years later, with the release of My Arms, Your Hearse, that I got to know the wonder that is Opeth. Of course, I was immediately compelled to pursue the back-catalogue, and find this jewel in the rough.

First off, the disclaimer: This is not the best Opeth has to offer, and new fans may have a better time starting with Blackwater Park, or MAYH, as they are much more accessible and the production has drastically improved since this debut.

Now with that out of the way, Orchid is still probably one of the strongest debut offerings of the 1990's (and this was while America was still stuck neck-deep in alternacrap vomit).

The music here is slick, well arranged, and very progressive. Two guitars interweave throughout the album in intricate melodies, with the occasional death or thrash riff that will have any strong metal fans banging heads profusely. The bass is actually clear and strong in many places, a rare concept for a lot of heavier metal bands, and actually has a part in many of the melodies. And of course, the drumming is top notch, even if the double-bass tends to find its way into places it might have been better off left out of.

Mikael's clean vocals are convincing and clear, while his growls (and sometimes utterly chilling shrieks) give the music a definite mood and tone. The only real problem here is that the production was somewhat limiting on the total effect (this would improve greatly in later albums)

The good:

- Forest of October. Just listen to it already.

- Parts with dual lead guitar. This sort of tandem is a rarity (especially in metal) and finding bands who do it this well is nearly unheard of.

- Silhouette. Wonderful piano piece, and they really haven't done anything like this since.

The bad:

- Nothing, but there are some things that needed improvement (hey, it's a debut after all). The songs were somewhat unstructured, and in places seem to ramble (Twilight Is My Robe, In Mist She Was Standing) and the overall production of Orchid did diminish the quality of the album a bit.

Grab this, but get BWP or MAYH first.

HASH(0x9a79fbe8) étoiles sur 5 Hard to explain emotions 1 août 2001
Par ka0z - Publié sur Amazon.com

Well, I do agree with most people saying Opeth is neither Black, nor Death, nor Gothic, nor whatever genre of Metal there is. But I say this, Opeth is metal. It may be Classical Metal, if there's such thing, however it would be really close minded to try to classify Opeth to one single genre. Metal predominates, this is heavy music. But you can see jazz, blues, 70s, etc influences. The accoustic passages are nothing short of beautiful. Opeth did nothing more and nothing less than to create its own niche in (metal) music, where it fits perfectly.
The first Opeth album I heard was Morningrise. After years, I still believe that it's their best. However, I haven't heard Orchid until I've gotten My Arms Your Hearse, and Still Life. I thought, aw well, usually debuts are half baked, nothing good. Man, was I wrong. I was so wrong, and I can't forgive myself that I willingly deprived myself of discovery of this gem for such a long time.
It's hard to describe Orchid. It's hard to describe Opeth'ian music (if not impossible). I'm very biased towards Opeth, I really can't see anything wrong in any, I repeat, any song. Orchid is beautiful. The soft side of Orchid is stunning. Akerfeldt delivers astonishing clean vocals, not to mention his Death growl. If I hadn't known this is a debut album, I wouldn't ever guess/think it is. The song structure is so mature, composition is awesome, the instruments are played with such musicmanship its hard to understand how is it possible to coordinate and such flawless flowing melodies. Every time I listen to Opeth, I find something new that I didn't disover before.
The only downside to Opeth is that it takes a few listens to become addicted to their music. It's like peeling an onion, first it seems like a rugged, strange surface, but after each layer (listen) you can see the beauty. Only, onions aren't beautiful, but its the best analogy I could find :)
Off topic: I find it very sad that Johan DeFarfalla (bass on Orchid, Morningrise) and Anders Nordin (drums on Orchid, Morningrise) left the band after their sophomore release. I know that Martin Mendez (bass replacement for DeFarfalla), and Martin Lopez (drums replacement for Nordin) are both excellent musicians, but I miss that bass sound, which is so predominant with DeFarfalla, I've never heard bass be so elegant before, just listen to Morningrise, and you'll see what I mean. And the drums are _excellent_ on both albums where Nordin participated, while the "new" drummer can replicate it flawlessly, there was still a different touch before. Opeth never released another 2 albums that could equate to Orchid and Morningrise. The sequence for best Opeth albums for me is: Morningrise, Orchid, MAYH, Blackwater Park, Still Life. But Opeth is Opeth, everything they do, shines.
In short, buy Orchid. Stunning work. There won't be another, so don't waste time, get it and immerge yourself in Opethian world of sorrow, death, beauty, sadness and tears. Long live Opeth.
