The origins of OPETH rest among the growing musical vaults of Candlelight Records (from whom Century Media long ago licensed America's first glimpse of a band that has now become one of metal's best and most creative outfits). Dating back to 1995 and 1996 respectively, the "home coming" of Orchid and Morningrise to Candlelight for the Americas, come with the addition of bonus tracks - long part of the European release of each of these incredible recordings. For many, Orchid is a special recording. Not only did it contain the respected vocal and guitar abilities of band leader Mikael Akerfeldt but it was truly the first of its kind. The band's blending of both acoustic and electric guitar with the dual personality of Akerfeldt's vocal outpouring made Orchid immediately a genre-setting release. A title that it still maintains today.
