Forgot about this. My class is actually literary criticism. We went over all the major lenses and applied four to one piece of our choosing (I did Lord of the Flies) and have read some criticism. Our main texts were Beowulf, Dracula, and Heart of Darkness. I'm currently working on my portfolio of those lens papers. I did Psychoanalytic, Neo-Colonialism, Post-Structuralism, and Hyper-Reality.


So, Opeth. Seeing those guys in a couple weeks. Anyone know their general set list?

I'm too lazy. That looks like a great set list. Nice variety between the last few albums.

Nice, I've never gotten around to reading Dracula. In our class we went over the theories of a different critic every class period, which got kinda hectic. We actually didn't really do any post-colonialism or any of that, which I found surprising. I've never even heard of Hyper-Reality. We didn't do any practical application of any theory in that class, which I found disappointing- I would have liked to have covered a smaller number of critics and focused more on using their theories.

I don't feel like going back to find the post this refers to, but you wanted to approach Opeth's lyrics using one of these theories or something right? What sort of critical theory do you find yourself most aligning with?


Edit: For those who have seen Opeth on this tour, how are Mikael's growls sounding these days? I saw them last year twice and his highs were sounding fine, it was more just his lows that sounded hoarse and forced.

I don't know what I would apply to Still Life. Possibly New Historicism or Deconstruction.

Hyper-Reality is part of Post-Modernism. It's essentially the Matrix. An image or falsification replacing the real. Like you exist as a real person but your forum profile, a false version of you, is more real to me. So I've entered a hyper-reality in relation to you. Something like that.

Hyper-Reality sounds pretty interesting. Any notable critics you could point me to? I'd like to read some of that.

Which album would you say is a good place to start with Opeth? Thinking of trying Still Life after listening to Benighted the other day.

I wouldn't really advise Still Life as a first album, though it is a good album, as all of theirs are other than maybe the first. I think people usually say Blackwater Park; I personally love Deliverance and My Arms Your Hearse. And did I mention I love Deliverance? I just listened to it for the first time in quite a while, and it's really quite an incredible piece of work. Fantastic from the beginning to end.

Still Life is my favorite album. Still Life, MAYH, and Blackwater Park are good starting points. If you want more Metal stuff, go to Deliverance and the earlier stuff. If you want more Prog, go to Damnation and later stuff.

I'd suggest Blackwater Park, Deliverance and Ghost Reveries. If you're into more mellow, acoustic stuff you might enjoy Damnation as well.

Opeth frontman says metal fans are “closed-minded”

Mikael Åkerfeldt's assertion that metalheads “don’t really want to know about what they’re getting” seems to make zero sense in a world where people download albums before buying them, or at least hear them on YouTube or via label-sponsored streaming on SoundCloud. In fact, metalheads have always wanted to hear the album before buying, even when they had to do it with CD players and headphones in record stores (as in the 1990s). It seems as if metalheads are picking albums for reasons that Åkerfeldt just doesn’t understand.

http://www.deathmetal.org/news/opet...-closed-minded/




"We're so ironic and unique, not like those other closed-minded people!" the hipsters squealed. Metal's become a soap opera. Thanks Opeth.
