Still Life was OPETH's first outing for Peaceville and armed with renewed enthusiasm, the band delivered a flawless gem of an album. Originally released in 1999, the enigmatic Still Life, is an ambitious concept album focusing on a tale of forbidden love in dangerous times. Featuring the extraordinary voice and poetic lyrics of Mikael Akerfeldt, Still Life's moods range from brutal passages of extreme metal to predominantly acoustic moments of breathtaking beauty.
The only words that come to my mind to describe Still Life are perfection, beauty and excellence. Opeth is really an incomparable band. The other bands do what they can, Opeth do what they want. - Metal Storm5/5
