    NP: Watershed

    I have the "deluxe" edition of Watershed, in that cardboard CD wallet that looks like a small envelope, with the bonus disk in a separate cardboard sleeve from the main disk. I forget how I got it, but I just noticed (I'd forgotten) the booklet is signed by the band! I'm not that big on autographs, but it's kind of cool to have something signed by Opeth!

    I like the photos in Watershed - it's like a more "evil" version of Thick as a Brick!

    Steel was basically a short-lived Swedish metal group with Mikael, Peter, Anders Nordin, and Dan Swano! The EP was recorded during the Morningrise sessions in '96. Crazy that this exists!

    Opeth released a song to streaming services recently, "Width of a Circle," which was previously only included in a special "connoisseur's edition" of In Cauda Venenum. Only heard it once, so can't comment on quality. Wasn't there a David Byrne track with the same title? If not Byrne, someone from his...circle.

    I don't think I'd ever heard of this, and I was obsessed with Opeth to the exclusion of all other music for years (big EoS fan too as you'd imagine). Jeez what a hoot. I can't imagine that I'll ever listen to it again, other than maybe to amuse some other old-school Opeth fans with it, but it gave me a chuckle. Pretty interesting story too.

    In case anyone wondered what Martin Axenrot does now, he and his partner Natalie (vocalist at the beginning of Watershed's Coil) opened a gourmet cheese shop/restaurant in Bernshammar, Sweden.

    Thanks to this thread I got all the albums from Damnation to In Cauda Venenum. I do prefer the "clean vox" albums though.

    The extended version of In Cauda Venenum is now fully available, with six bonus tracks (three extra songs in each language) :

    Maybe you are thinking of the David Bowie song?

    Have most of Opeth in 5.1, but finding Damnation & Deliverance has been an expensive endeavor. Listening to Opeth in 5.1 is an experience.

    Sounds amazing. Never heard them in 5.1. They sound lovely on 2-channel stereo on cd and lp too

    I only have the two original CDs. Is this a compilation of the two that includes 5.1?

    A deluxe edition was released a few years ago with both albums remastered on CD and DVD's with 5.1 mixes of both. Was in one of those book-sized cases (i.e. Jethro Tull, Marillion remasters).

    If you're actually reading this then chances are you already have my last album but if NOT and you're curious:
