I liked Orchird a lot!
But I also liked all the other cds Ive heard by them they are an amazing ass band!
Their musical genius is almost unparralled.

Yeah they're right up there with the masters of Carcass and Rotting Christ, musicianship wise. And quality.

Musically, I really enjoy Opeth, but as soon as the vocals come in, I change it to something else....

get Damnation. No death growls. I promise. Also, on Deliverance, the song A Fair Judgement has no death growls. And some relatively crappy acoustic songs on Blackwater Park.

Oh come on! Suck it up! Their growls are that bad! You can at least hear most of what they are singing with the growls.

A lot of people don't enjoy any type of growl. I don't much, but just the great instrument parts are the only reason I listen to Opeth.

Opeth kicks major ass.

They manage to balance the growls with some good honest to god singing.

Demon of the Fall is one of the finest songs I've ever heard.

I don't know of any other vocalist to do this...or atleast I can't think of them off of the top of my head...oh yeah I do...that guy from My Dying Bride...but it depends on the album. But it's rare for that balance to occur, true.

OH MY GOD.

I hope Opeth goes to Earache. That is unacceptable.
"Are you kidding me?" exclaimed guitarist/vocalist Mikael Akerfeldt. "I spend months writing the lyrics to each of our songs, and indeed craft the music around my words. I've spent over a decade improving both my death metal growl and my 'real' singing voice. But to have William Hung - I scarcely dare to utter his name! - interpret my lyrics? You might as well ask me if I'd mind having Mozart 'touch up' a few of our acoustic parts."

For the record, Mozart was a great musician with a brilliant mind who created unique classical music. Just like Opeth are great musicians with brilliant minds who have created, create, and will be creating unique progressive death metal music.

William Hung and Opeth - From Damnation to Inspiration hits store shelves May 5. In addition to first single "Deemon of the Faw," other tracks include "The Weppeuwh Affininininity," "Face of Mewinda (When She Bangs)," and "Apwil Efeeweeull."

That BETTER be a joke.

My favorite growlers are Chris Barnes (Cannibal Corpse), Jeff Walker (CARCASS), Lord Worm (Cryptopsy), Glen Benton (Deicide), that guy who used to sing for Dying Fetus, the guy who sings for Exhumed, the guy who sings for Immolation, the guy who sings for Morbid Angel, the girl who sings for Arch Enemy, the guy who sings for Nile...and that guy who sings for Rotting Christ. Wow. I forgot a lot of names...
