I've really been grooving on the mellower instrumentals I've discovered by Opeth, i.e. Patterns in the Ivy, For Absent Friends, & Requiem.

Also enjoying Pallar Anders Visa by In Flames.

Do Opeth and In Flames have any others?

Please point me to other metal instrumentals by those two bands and any others in this vein.

*Note: Not looking for the heavier instrumentals i.e. Orion, To Live is to Die, etc. I have those already and am searching for the mellower stuff. Thanx!

People don't like Dave Mustaine because he created something that owned Metallica in just about every single aspect of thrash metal.

Well, the thread I started in the Classic Rock section named different musicians.

I think you'd agree that Opeth and In Flames are not in the same category as Rik Emmett.

I'm just trying to get feedback from guitarists familiar with different genres. Sorry if that offended you.

Veritas, Aequitas- Darkest Hour

freaking amazing. yeah Patterns is really really freaking good but Darkest Hour is my favorite band so i learn more towards DH. its 13 minutes and its real hard for a while then it mellows out. so definitly check it out.

Between the buried and me- Selkies: the endless obsession gets pretty mellow at the end. At first it is pretty heavey, but it gets pretty mellow about halfway through the song.

Also kind of boring and the beginning of the slippage of Opeth into the sewers of Ghost Reveries...



Still good, though, for what it is. Kind of like Metallica - Black Album. Classic and quite listenable despite its depressing indication that the band is going to crap...

And has anyone mentioned Orion by Metallica?

Not mellow all the way through, but one of the better metal instrumentals, I'd say.

Not overly metal but, Red Sparowes, Red Sparowes, and Red Sparowes.

More on the metal side: Kong, Midnite Snake, and Canvas Solaris.
Don't be derivative. Explore...

Of course you have to include Infinite Misery...but since Hawaiiguy is looking for "mellow" instrus then you should try some Joe Satriani, preferably the "Mr. Potato Head Groove Thing"

dream theater and liquid tension experiment have some good instrumentals, and hamburger train by primus is pretty neat, not sure if it counts as metal...

edit: ^when did you get back?!
