    Opeth - When



    Here is a softer song from their album Damnation

    I prefer their Steven Wilson-produced stuff over the more heavier DATH METUL stuff.

    So that's pretty much Blackwater Park, Deliverance, and Damnation.
    Although Watershed ain't bad either.

    I agree those are great albums, but have you ever listened to My Arms Your Hearse or Still Life. They are both amazing, My Arms, Your Hearse is definitely their heaviest album that they have made but its so amazing!

    While we are talking about best metal bands ever, that will be Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden for me. Oh and maybe led Zeppelin, though they are more Traditional Metal.

    And I actually like some Opeth songs though I hate most of the Black/Death/Trash Metal stuff.

    They can also do some nice soft songs. Great artists.

    I shan't lie - I think Opeth is boring as fuck.

    You must of have not listened to enough Opeth lawlawlawlawl. I love COB, they were one of the first metal bands I ever listened too but I have to say Opeth beats Children of Bodom outta the water.

    Thats my opinion though, I respect yours, and I love both those bands.

    I wouldn't compare them. Ever.

    Children of Bodom is shit compared to Opeth.
    OH NO I JUST COMPARED THEM

    but in all seriousness, opeth is much better

    Mikael is an awesome songwriter and they've become probably my favorite band over the past couple years. But I've only learned a few of their songs so far (Bleak, Heir Apparent, Baying of the Hounds, etc). Dissecting a song and memorizing it brings a unique appreciation, but makes it less entertaining for casual listening and I like playing their albums too much.
