Opeth: holy ****

So, I'm typically very indie rock when it comes to music; I also like a lot of old blues and even some bluegrass.
I usually HATE metal. I think it sounds annoying and gives me a headache. I don't mean that faux-metal they play on 98.9.. I know what death, grind, and black metal are, and I typically believe they're just different genres for me to be annoyed with.
But I recently started listening to Opeth, and I absolutely love it. Holy shit. I bought their album Blackwater Park, and I really like it. I'm not sure how I made it this long without hearing them, but it's not like that type of metal is necessarily mainstream.

Anyway, I'm a convert. Even when he growls, the music behind it is so densely layered and complex that I still really like it. Anybody else like Opeth? Good recommendations for a second purchase?

Listen to Opeth's most recent album, Watershed. Mikael's singing voice has never been stronger, and he sings way more than he growls.

Baroness is still blowing my mind on nearly a daily basis. Love that album. I gave Kalisia a good listen on a road trip. Very interesting the way they dip into different genres, especially the electronic influence.

In February of 2009 I saw Baroness and High on Fire (and Clutch) open for Opeth. That was a brilliant show.

These guys are young as hell, which is what surprised me about finding them while refreshing my Iron Maiden collection. Their songs are full of nasty Maiden like transitions. And I guess that makes sense, because Maiden is their main inspiration, and favorite band.
At least listen to the solo .

Reminds me of when Metallica was worth listening to.

I like.


Shame there's no longer an all music station on TV. You know, like MTV was until about a 15 years ago...

Trivium has always been bad to me but I haven't listened to them past their second album. I guess I'll listen to beach tribe's YouTube embed.

*1:14 later*

Nope, Trivium still sucks.

Each his own, of course.
When I blast the Ascendancy, or Shogun album till the double bass about breaks my windows, and the shredding scares the neighbors, I feel strangely comfortable.

Of course it's dumb. The whole album is parody. Comedy. It is impressive on a technical level while being refreshingly silly.

Ascendancy is as far as it goes.....opened for them three times and partied with those guys....great dudes, great live show but god Crusades and Shogun sucked. BFMV are much better although The Fever sucks big time too..

I can't even listen to Crusades. My God it's horrible.
BFMV can shred. Awesome transitions, love the way the two play off of each others soloing, Matt Tuck's voice is definitely lacking in testicular department.(and that was before he blew out his voicebox)
If you like some of the softer stuff mixed in they've got it.
Love their dual soloing like in this song starts at 1:40ish)
