Personnel: Opeth (vocals); Peter Lindgren (guitar, acoustic guitar, electric guitar); Martin Lopez (drums).
Collecting their early work into a three-disc compilation, The Candlelight Years revisits the formative years of quintessential death metal band Opeth. Consisting of Orchid (1995), Morningrise (1996), and My Arms, Your Hearse (1998), the set shows the band as they worked to find their sound, hinting at the band that would eventually release the ground breaking Blackwater Park just a few years later. Definitely a great place to start for anyone interested in observing Opeth's development during their embryonic years. ~ Gregory Heaney
