Progressive Death metal band formed in 1990; known for their blend of folk, metal, and progressive 70's rock, and Mikael Åkerfeld's brutal death growls and beautiful clean vocals. One of the most talented extreme metal bands around today.
Opeth is a very good band.

May 12 Word of the Day
When someone goes to the gym and spends 90% of the time on their phones scrolling through social media
Looks like its thumb day again for Jimmy with his usual routing... 3 sets of 5 snapchat selfies and 10 sets of scrolling through facebook until exhaustion

What you get when you take folk, prog, and death metal and mix in a blender of musical talent. When you listen to this music, the chills that go up your spine are astounding. Imagine standing on a windswept moor in the middle of nowhere, walking anyplace. The kind of desolate longing and anticipated dread that this style of scene conjures up is the essence of Opeth.

A truly talented and intelligent band which creates original music. Probably can't be understood by most nu-metal kids because the songs aren't 3 minutes of complaining about how much their life supposedly sucks.

Swedish 4-piece band that can make a 10minute+ song sound like it's only 4 minutes. The very extreme thought of putting Double kick drums, acoustic guitars, and deep growls in the same song was unheard of. Until now. The Drastic changes from death metal to melodic melodies gives me chills just thinking about it. Absolute metal (and all music as far as that goes) geniuses. Period.

Opeth as a band presents the stylistic progressive music from the 1970's added with the progressive touch of the highly acclaimed scandinavian death-metal.
