    Swedens leader in progressive metal, Opeth ...
    Fixed I'm a big fan of Katatonia, and i'm really looking forward to see them live here in Portugal, next November. However, there's no denying that Opeth is Swedens leader in progressive metal. Wether you call it progressive death or not, they're still progressive metal, and the leaders at that. Also, another contest open to USA residents only. Yay...

    ^ great comment. Its an article about Katatonia not Opeth. They were amazing live anyone who has the chance should see them.
    Sweden's leader in progressive metal? Ever heard of a little band called Opeth? Seriously, we got some geniuses here crankin' out these articles. SMH...
