Opeth "Death Whispered A Lullaby"


Opeth "Death Whispered A Lullaby" Live

 Opeth is a Swedish progressive metal band from Stockholm, has consistently incorporated progressive, folk, blues, classical and jazz influences into their usually lengthy compositions, as well as strong influences from black metal and death metal, especially in their early works. 

Watch  full video Live at Shepherds Bush Empire   from  Lamentations, the first live video of Opeth, released under the Music For Nations label in 2003.

It was recorded at the Shepherd's Bush Empire on 25 September 2003.

Opeth is  formed in 1990. Though the group has been through several personnel changes, singer, guitarist, and songwriter Mikael Åkerfeldt has remained Opeth's driving force throughout the years.  Many songs include acoustic guitar passages and strong dynamic shifts, as well as both death growls and clean vocals. Opeth rarely made live appearances supporting their first four albums; but since conducting their first world tour after the 2001 release of Blackwater Park, they have led several major world tours.

"Death Whispered a Lullaby" is track #3 on the album Damnation. It was written by Akerfeldt, Mikael Lars / Wilson, Steven John.

Damnation is the seventh full-length studio album by Opeth. Produced by Steven Wilson, it was released five months after Deliverance, which was recorded at the same time. Mikael Åkerfeldt dedicated both albums to his grandmother, who died in a car accident during the time the albums were being recorded.

The album was a radical departure from Opeth's typical death metal sound and the first Opeth release to exclusively utilize clean vocals, clean guitars, and prominent mellotron, as well as being inspired by 1970s progressive rock, which typically features no heavy riffs or extended fast tempos. Despite the change in style from Opeth's previous albums, Damnation was critically acclaimed and boosted their popularity, leading to the release of Lamentations on DVD in late 2003.

Lamentations features Opeth playing the album Damnation in its entirety (with the song "Harvest" from Blackwater Park put in the running order before the last song), followed by some of the band's songs from Blackwater Park and Deliverance. The only song that was played from albums prior to Blackwater Park was "Demon of the Fall" (from the album My Arms, Your Hearse) as an encore song, but the song was not filmed for the DVD due to licensing issues with previous record labels prevented this from happening at the time of the disc's release

Death Whispered A Lullaby Lyrics
by Opeth & It was co-written and produced by Steven Wilson

Out on the road there are fireflies circling
Deep in the woods, where the lost souls hide
Over the hill there are men returning
Trying to find some peace of mind

Sleep my child [4x]

Under the fog there are shadows moving
Don't be afraid, hold my hand
Into the dark there are eyelids closing
Buried alive in the shifting sands
Sleep my child [4x]

Speak to me now and the world will crumble
Open a door and the moon will fall
All of your life all your memories
Go to your dreams, forget it all
Sleep my child [4x]
