Blackwater Park is the fifth studio album by Swedish metal band Opeth, originally released in February 2001 via Music For Nations and Koch Records.

Generally hailed as Opeth's opus magnum, Blackwater Park (2001) has proven to be a transitional album for the band. While its earlier albums bring extreme and epic Metal, later albums are leaning heavily towards mid-seventies Progressive Rock.

For Blackwater Park, Opeth asked Steven Wilson to co-produce the album, which marked a considerable shift in the musical style of the band, adopting more prog rock influences in the song arrangements. The band manage to integrate both genres beautifully with tons of huge metal riffing, progressive rock arrangements and musical hooks, and dark lyrical topics. In this new direction, Opeth sounds remarkably fresh and convincing on each lengthy track, fully exploring and captivating.

The album sounds as fresh today as it did when it was released seventeen years ago.

In June 2015, Rolling Stone magazine ranked "Blackwater Park" at #28 on their list Greatest Prog Rock Albums of All Time. TeamRock (Classic Rock) placed the album at #36 on their Top 100 Prog Albums of All Time list.

Check out the tracks:  Harvest”; “The Leper Affinity”; “Blackwater Park” and “Bleak”.
