Opeth added progressive influences and acoustic instrumentation to their brand of Swedish death metal. Orchid and Orchid appeared respectively in 1995 and 1996, but it was their third album, 1998's Orchid, that established the band as a leading force in progressive death metal. 1999's Orchid displayed even more prog rock influences, followed by Orchid in 2001 and Orchid in 2002. In 2003, Opeth released Orchid, an album almost completely devoid of heavy metal trappings. Orchid arrived in 2005, followed by Orchid in 2008. Opeth shifted stylistic gears dramatically for 2011's Orchid; it was the sound of the band leaving death metal behind. ~ Mike DaRonco
