The original post

Posted by addiction on 22.04.2008 at 13:06
the last opeth thread reached the max of 500 posts....so this is the new one...:)
i've never started a topic before in about 4 years...but this is a good chance...:)
Opeth is a fantastic band, probably my favourite. i more or less like all their albums but i think i like blackwater park slightly more than the rest, maybe because it is the first one i ever listened to.
i am looking forwards to the new album and to see them live on the defenders of the faith tour in london in a few days!!!
anyway, you know the drill...discuss away....

I was on Opeth's official Facebook page and where it shows all your facebook friends who also liked the page, all the Opeth fans on my friends list happen to be some of the absolute coolest, most down to earth people I know. If there's no connection between that and being an Opeth fan, it's the biggest coincidence I've seen yet.

Edit: Now that I think about it, it's probably because (due to the nature of Opeth's music), it takes an open mind to get into them. Open mindedness plays a huge roll in being a cool, down to earth person I suppose.

Methinks Mr. Thunderaxe didn't see Opeth's Facebook when Opeth didn't deliver the song they promised they would on time. Fans were anything but open minded, cool and tolerant.

There is no connection. Usually attributing qualities of a tiny sample size to a much larger overall group doesn't provide a high level of accuracy when characterizing that group, either.

I'm not an idiot, I understand that correlation does not equal causation, hence why I typed "If there's no connection between that and being an Opeth fan, it's the biggest coincidence I've seen yet.", Please bear in mind, also, that I was high when I posted that

Yep. If I remember correctly, people were flipping their shit.

I've personally met a ton of really cool Opeth fans, and some that were total douchebags. The music they like didn't have much to do with that at all.

I dont like any kind of growling/screaming vocals so I have a really hard time getting in to Opeth, I've listened to the Blackwater Park album a few times though because the music is just awesome.

That's how it all usually starts when we start getting into more extreme vocals, the instrumental quality sucks you in first

Haha yeah I've accepted the growling on In Flames first albums because the music is awesome, but I really doubt I'll start liking growling any time soon, to me it just sounds horrible.

Dude just... wow. Ok so try listening to Damnation, watershed, Heritage and Pale Communion. there are maybe like 3 Growly vocal songs on watershed, the rest is ALL clean vocals. ]

Opeth is Great of course, My Opeth obsession is shall we say on Hiatus, as I am a bit burned out on them from a LOT of listening. But will be checking out pale communion soon, so we shall see. I own all Opeth albums from Orchid-Ghost Reveries, my fav is somewhere between Still Life, Blackwater Park, Deliverance and Damnation. And ghost Reveries is pretty beast too.

Opeth is just one of those bands that you would have to put yourself in a calm environment in order to enjoy their music, especially with everything after Blackwater Park. Try having a very metal bubble bath while listening to an Opeth album. Earlier albums such as Orchid and Morningrise work in a wider variety of situations.

That's how I started out too; I listened to their latest album and went onto albums like Damnation. I could tolerate the growling vocals, but I was really in it for the instruments. Eventually the vocals grew on me, and now I listen to more death metal and black metal.

The first Opeth album I got into was Blackwater Park. I'm not sure why I was so hesitant. I was listening to bands like At the Gates and Death at the time, and I could stomach some acoustic guitar in my metal, however, something just didn't click right away. Eventually, Bleak was one of those songs that really peaked my interest after listening to the album a number of times. The patience definitely payed off.

Sometimes albums and songs can be like that.

Patience is definitely very important when first listening to them. I can often be too quick to judge a song after hearing it the first time, but not every song/album is going to click right away. Some songs/albums take a little time to grow on you and then they become one of your favorites.

I think it's because, some bands are so alien too you at first that they don't quite make sense, but if you don't give up on them, suddenly they can begin too and make an impact.
