Orchid was the first album recorded by Opeth. It was considered unique at the time, because the twin lead guitar style hadn’t been used much in their genre. They also had more Prog Rock roots in their music than other bands like them. It was recorded in 1994, but released in 1995 due to problems with the bands label at the time.
Opeth's debut, Orchid, was quite an audacious release, a far-beyond-epic prog/death monstrosity exuding equal parts beauty and brutality - an album so brilliant, so navel-gazingly pretentious that, in retrospect, Opeth's future greatness was a foregone conclusion. Fact is, these Swedes - with the opening cut, "In Mist She Was Standing," exceeding the 14-minute mark - laid their cards on the table at the beginning of the hand and still took the pot, so ambitious and convincing is the band's artistic vision.
