A new two-disc edition of OPETH's 1999 album Still Life is being released on March 31st via Peaceville Records. The set features a re-mastered stereo mix of the album on CD plus DVD with new 5.1 surround sound mix plus 'Face Of Melinda' filmed live in London. The artwork has been re-worked by original designer Travis Smith.

According to a press release, "Still Life was Opeth's first outing for Peaceville. Blessed with renewed enthusiasm, the band delivered yet another flawless gem of an album. Like My Arms, Your Hearse (1998) before it, Still Life was originally recorded under the watchful eye of engineer Fredrik Norddtrom at Gothenburg's Studio Fredman and Maestro Musik and has now been re-mastered and re-mixed by Jens Borgen.

My favorite opeth album, i'll consider buying this reissue. I always appreciate a good 5.1 mix. I think that Opeth's soft side will translate well in 5.1.

EEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been screaming for this for years and it's going to happen! Awesome. This album has so much going on, so many layers such perfect death vox and clean vocals. Best...News...Ever.-----today, and it's coming so soon. If MAYH can gets the same treatment I'll be a happy camper.

Now Playing: Tool - "Pushiit Salival Version"

One of those Opeth albums I never invested in. Too many rerecordings going on (Shadows Fall, Hypocrisy, etc.) but this one is the one I might actually check out.

Let me be the first to say that I f***in dig on wild, aggressive, and head-banging music like no other. But I've never f***in felt pain and emotional turmoil when listening to heavy metal. And perhaps this is why Opeth and Still Life transcend this term. Can hardly wait to buy this 5.1 mix....
