That's a decent list. Not necessarily the best bands EVER, but at least we've proven that as a forum, we've got good taste in metal.

Opeth is so overrated. I really like them but man, they're not even close to so many other bands...

Yes if it was up to me testament would be there... but they didnt even make the list

For comparison can you post all the bands that were entered at first?

Because I don't know if kreator was in there, but I don't see how they could lose to Slayer.

Not even close??? To who? Cryptopsy? That's purely a matter of opinion. A matter of fact is that they've been the most innovative band metal's seen for a loooong time.
Every single bit of attention they've gotten, they've deserved.

No, fact.

And even if it was opinion, it would still be more valid than saying 'there are so many better bands out there'.

I wouldn't say 'best band ever' about any band (except possibly DT ), but I mean, there are a lot of bands that could qualify for 'best metal band' for different reasons - most influential, best songwriting, most technical...etc. So I'd say it's impossible to label any band the 'best ever'. But I agree, Opeth is certainly a band that would qualify in many categories as one of the best of all time.

Oh you've got to be fucking kiddding me. I'm a huge Nile/Cryptopsy/Behemoth whore but any complements they receive are still personal opinion.

I sincerely believe that Opeth being possibly the most original act in metal, is factual. Anything beyond that, such as 'omg best band evar' can be considered opinion, anything that's purely complimentary.

Then that's creepy. "Original" is inherently a subjective term. I could say Jimi Hendrix was original, but he took most of his influence from early blues guitarists. Original is not a fact.

I love Opeth, unlike I do any other band, however even I have to admit that saying that they are outright the best band (which I myself, do say) is a matter of opinion.

Facts exist for statistics...not so much on musical originality, technicality, complexity or talent.

Example:

Dragonforce Fanboy: ZOMG! HERMAN LI IS SO ****ING AMAZING!

Someone else: Well he's talented...but horribly overrated, I mean to me it just seems like he's playing a lot of scales...really fast. Now Petrucci...there's talent.

[/endexample]

Notice how both statements were opinions. Someone can raise many a point as to why they believe that a certain band is the best to exist....but it's still a matter of opinion.


In other news; Opeth ****ing owns.

Well, the fact that they were the first (and still one of the only) bands to do what they do is a fact. The way they took their influences and mixed them together to make something totally new was inarguably, a display of originality. How is that creepy, lol.
