Opeth - 'The Twilight is My Robe'

My first acquaintance with Opeth came about via a dodgy tape-traded copy of their 'Orchid' debut. The recording was effectively in mono so that only one of the lead guitars rang through, but despite this handicap the music proved to be absolutely beguiling.

As a sucker for dual guitar harmonies, the Swedes' first three albums have always appealed to me more than their subsequent output. 'The Twilight is My Robe' gets better and better as it goes on, ascending to a climactic powerchord (8:58) that clears the air before the closing refrain.
