Opeth Damnation And Deliverance on Limited Edition Import 180g 3LP Box Set
Originally intended to be a double album, Opeth released Deliverance and Damnation 5 months apart in 2002 and 2003 respectively. Over 15 years later Music For Nations is righting this wrong and presenting the two masterworks as one complete piece on 180-gram triple vinyl. New stereo mixes have been completed by by Steven Wilson (Damnation) and Bruce Soord (Deliverance) and the results were mastered for the vinyl format by Jaime Gomez. To top it off the artwork has been redesigned by the original designer, Travis Smith.
Mikael Åkerfeldt comments: "Myself and Martin Mendez are very excited to see the re-release(s) of Deliverance and Damnation coming out. The mix for Damnation was done a while ago by my buddy and co-producer for both albums, Steven Wilson, and I've been itching to have it released as it's simply stunning! My new-ish friend, Bruce Soord, has done a fantastic remix for Deliverance, literally giving new life to the record and making me start loving it...
"It was with pure excitement I went through the tracks, discovering them again. I'm scratching my head wondering how the hell we came up with these songs. On top of everything, our old-time head of ART, Travis Smith, has touched up on the artwork having it looking great (bleak) too! Enjoy!"
