Blackwater Park is Opeth's fifth album, released under KOCH Records in 2001. This album incorporates both heavy death metal parts and softer, mellow progressive rock elements. Several of the songs in this album feature "telephone vocals", an effect which is common in Steven Wilson's music, who helped produce Blackwater Park. Steve Wilson also sang backup vocals in Bleak, a song with a mediterranean atmosphere, as well as "The Drapery Falls", and others songs. In a typical Opeth fashion, in contrast to the album's heavy songs, such as "The Leper Affinity" and "Bleak", the album also has softer parts, such as "Harvest", a completely acoustic track without death metal vocals.
