Too bad Opeth ISN'T DEATH METAL

Jesus Christ, their fans are worse than Cynic's and BTBAM's combined...

Point aside, I'm with the Obituary rec.

denying the death metal influence is, i guess, ignorant would be the better word here. i can agree that they're not traditional death metal a la obituary but saying that there isn't an influence doesn't make sense
#22
Gonna have to agree with the Moogster here, even if he's being more of a cunt than usual.

There's no way anybody can call Opeth just death metal.

But there ISN'T.

Where in this faux-prog rock do you see death metal influence?

Their Death Metal influence is little to non existent, and i'm a fan. So be quiet boys.

Holy dicks the stupid in this thread is burning me from the inside.

Opeth aren't death metal, go be pretentious somewhere else.

I see (or hear, rather) atypical song structure, high tempo drumming (especially the double bass), and growled vocals. Those don't a death metal band make, but they are evidence of strong influence from the death metal scene.

Now, Opeth doesn't sound anything like American death metal, true. However, I do hear a lot of similarities to melodeath, especially the Gothenburg sound, which is prevalent in Opeth's country of origin (Sweden).
#28
1. Atypical song structure isn't necessarily typical of death metal.

2. High speed drumming is found in basically all metal.

3. Growled vocals are found in a lot of different styles of metal.

4. Melodeath =/= death metal

this is an awful argument


And why is that?

Because it makes sense?

Because death metal isn't the only genre with growls. Therefore, growls =/= death metal influences.

That has to be the oldest e-insult ever to be concocted.

Hey brainiac. Try coming up with something different, being that I've been with the same woman for 3 and a half years and yes indeedy, I am a nerd. But guess what?

I'm happy with it.

So keep on throwing retarded insults my way and I'll keep on not caring.

At best you could only argue that certain songs by Opeth are death metal, they do too many non-death metal things to be able to say that any substantial amount of their material is death metal.
