I find it hard with opeth. It's one of those bands whom, when looking at all the other I listen to really should top ny list but doesn't. I think the main thing is I never really liked death or "metal metal". Anyway, I've seen them live twice (at festivals) and I gotta say they're extremely talented musicians. But thing still is, their music never gets to me...

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opeth

QUOTE
When news leaked that the band was signed to Roadrunner, who predominantly worked with trend-oriented rock and metal, some fans accused the band of selling out. "To be honest", Åkerfeldt said, "that's such an insult after 15 years as a band and 8 records. I can't believe we haven't earned each and every Opeth fan's credibility after all these years. I mean, our songs are 10 minutes long!"


And they've been playing for 18 years now.

Not pointing any fingers, but I just read that article and found the quote suiting for the thread.

Wow, I can't believe you are calling Watershed more accessible then for example Ghost Reveries. Imo Ghost Reveries is by far the most accessible and polished Opeth record. I happen to love polished albums so it's all good. But Watershed is less accessible than Blackwater Park for me. Accessibillity for me is not something that has to do with what kind of vocals there are etc, but more about how the songs are built.

Also, watershed is amazing. Maybe not the best release this year, but still amazing.

I find that last sentence to be quite weird to be honest. It doesn't matter if your song is 30 seconds or 10 minutes long, its how you attract and keep the balance of the song to the listener. For instance, Vital Remains makes very long songs, but there quite boring. I think, so what Akerfeldt if your songs are still 10 minutes long, ITS JUST BORING compared to your older songs that are more thought out.

They are, there older stuff at least. Icons of Evil wasn't bad, but would be better if they trimmed it down by 15 minutes haha.

I think I can see what you mean, Although I like Icons Of Evil more than Dechristianize, BUT, Dechristianize is my favorite song by them.

I'm pretty new to Opeth, great band!

My favorites are My Arms, Your Hearse, Orchid and Blackwater Park.

The whole Prog metal scene is something I only started getting into over the last year and a half...I've been into Mastadon somewhat, but that's about it. All that stuff sounded so weird to me. Took some time for me to understand and appreciate.

Opeth is my alltime favorite band.. the closest thing to them for me is Daylight Dies and they aren't half as amazing.. people say steve wilson ruined opeth.. but as a porcupine tree and blackfield fan i think it made opeth better.. polished albums too me are better than wanna be good albums that just don't hit the mark. I really loved Ghost Reveries and i really love watershed. Roadrunner is doing a great job with opeth just like Dream Theater and Constant Motion biggrin.gif. Sorry another album that really comes close to opeth albums with me is Colours by Between the Buried and me and live they put on almost as good a show as Opeth. But Opeth is just top cheese as far as melodic death metal goes in my books smile.gif
