Damnation is the seventh full-length studio album by Swedish progressive rock band Opeth. It was released on 22 April 2003, five months after Deliverance, which was recorded at the same time. Damnation is the last Opeth album to date to be produced by Steven Wilson although he did mix two future albums, Heritage and Pale Communion. Mikael Åkerfeldt dedicated both albums to his grandmother, who died in a car accident during the time the albums were being recorded. Damnation - Opeth. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей коллекцией. The seventh long play of this swedish progressive death metal band. Produced by Steve Wilson Porcupine Tree, this is an exclusively progressive 's first progressive rock album, which lacks the death metal overdubs and extreme metal influences.

It was released on April 22 of that year, just five months after releasing their previous album Deliverance, one of their heavier albums.
