by Patrick Schmidt (04/03) The so-called twin-brother of the 2002-album, "Deliverance" has, as mentioned earlier, little to do with its brother. On "Damnation", Akerfeldt and Co. exclusively concentrated on the quieter, ballad-like moments of rock, do completely without grunt-vocal and metal guitars. Instead, you get extended acoustic passages, 70s-organ/keyboard sounds and purest, most beautiful vocals. The liking of Akerfeldt for Camel and other heroes of the long forgotten heydays of Progressive Rocks is manifested in fantastic compositions, carried by sad melodies letting you forget the sense for time and space. All that is added by this typical Scandinavian melancholy that could be heard on albums of bands, like Anglagard, Anekdoten, Landberk or Ravana. Opeth do already sit on the Olympus of the progressive exceptions and considering that the quartet will go on celebrating their art for more years to come causes me pelasant shivers down the spine. Unbelievably ingenious!
