    They are fucking brilliant! Seriously, where the hell have I been all this time?!?!?!

    To all the Opeth lovers on this site, I say, "I should've listened to you a loooong time ago..."

    I like Opeth but really only for the acoustic guitar and clean vocals. Damnation >*

    Drapery Falls and Harvest are amazing tracks off of BP and Fair Judgement off of Deliverance is good.

    It's taking me a while to get used to the growling screams, but the music is just so breathtaking, it's unreal.

    All of their albums are experiences. They compose great tracks and breath-taking albums. The elegance of their time shifts and incorporation of melody with such intesity is just mystifying. Definately one of the best bands I've ever had the pleasure of listening to.

    I really like To Rid the Disease. As posted, I can't really get into the screaming vocals, can anyone recommend other clean vocal songs?

    A lot of the albums have tracks where he just sings and doesn't scream. 'Harvest' off of Blackwater Park, Face of Melinda, A Fair Judgment, etc...

    I've found though, that you need both the screaming and singing in order to get the full experience out of the music. It really paints the whole picture for me.

    I just got the Opeth DVD yesterday. THere is no doubt in my fucking mind that they are the greatest metal band on the planet.

    I can't wait to see them this summer.
