'Still Life' was Opeth's fourth career studio release, & 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, & is regarded as one of the defining releases in helping to mark Opeth's ascension towards being a dominant force in the world of metal and prog.
This limited double picture disc vinyl edition is presented in a gatefold sleeve featuring the re-worked artwork by original designer Travis Smith on both the sleeve and the vinyl prints, as well as featuring the band's iconic emblem on the cover.
