It was reissued in 2000 with one bonus track called "Into the Frost of Winter", an early unproduced rehearsal recording by the band. The recording sessions occurred at the old Unisound studio, in Finspång with production by Opeth alongside Dan Swanö.

In 1994, Orchid was recorded with DeFarfalla as a session bassist. The album was released in '95 with Dan Swano as engineer and Opeth themselves handling all the production. I'm getting bored with the unforgiving factual crap, so on to the music. In Mist She Was Standing - 10/10 This was the song that got me hooked on Opeth. It starts out with brutally melodic guitar work, and only gets better as the song gets heavier with Mikaels' trademark vocals.
Opeth's debut, Orchid, was quite an audacious release, a far-beyond-epic prog/death monstrosity exuding equal parts beauty and brutality - an album so brilliant, so navel-gazingly pretentious that, in retrospect, Opeth's future greatness was a foregone conclusion. Fact is, these Swedes - with the opening cut, "In Mist She Was Standing," exceeding the 14-minute mark - laid their cards on the table at the beginning of the hand and still took the pot, so ambitious and convincing is the band's artistic vision.

Orchid' is certainly the most unrefined of Opeth's releases, but the terrific song writing and dualism between soft and harsh vocals make this album a classic. Matthew Clouse Jan 7, 2018. This album features: Mikael Åkerfeldt – lead vocals, guitar. Peter Lindgren – guitar.
