Opeth are the Swedish heavy metal band formed in 1990 in Stockholm. The group has seen much change over the years, from their line-up, to their influences and general sound. However, from the early days their driving force has been singer/songwriter/guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt.
It was in the autumn of 1990 Stockholm that David Isberg (vocals) invited Åkerfeldt (then band member of Eruptian) to join Opeth on bass. One day later the turbulent status of the bands line-up started, as Isberg had not told the rest of the band, including the current bassist, that Åkerfeldt would be joining. This prompted the rest of the band to walk out and form a new project.
They have released 10 studio albums, the first of which being in 1995 named Orchid. However, they did not attract mainstream interest until their 8th album Ghost Reveries, which was followed up by major American commercial success of the 9th album Watershed.
