Formed in 1990, the group has been through several personnel changes. Singer, guitarist, and songwriter Mikael Åkerfeldt has remained OPETH's driving force throughout the years. The band has consistently incorporated Progressive, Folk, Blues, Classical and Jazz influences into their usually lengthy compositions, as well as noticeable influences from Black Metal and Death Metal, most notably in their early works. 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.
OPETH has released eleven studio albums, three live DVDs, three live albums (two in conjunction with DVDs), and two boxsets. The band's tenth studio album, "Heritage" is the last OPETH recording with Per Wiberg as the keyboardist.
