One could easily say 'Enslaved is the black metal equivalent to Opeth' or vice-versa. They are both masters of their craft in Extreme Metal. Which one would you say is better though?

Based on new albums?
Live shows?

This is something I myself couldn't say as I'm a huge fan of both bands. However, I'm curious to see the results. Could you imagine these two playing together? That would be money well spent!

Enslaved songs don't flow quite as well. I'm pretty fickle though so I might come back and edit this Enslaved pushes the boundaries and I applaud them for that, while Opeth's quality is far more consistent.

Difficult decision but as I liked Enslaved last realease much more than the weird 70s stuff Opeth released they thake the spot.

Shouldn't your decision be based on your positive experience with each band? If you had to pick a record to play eternally, would it be from Opeth or Enslaved?

Truthly said I have never listened an Enslaved album from start to end only some tracks. I would choose Opeth since I have listened Ghost Reveries and Watershed which I found brillant.

But you voted Enslaved no? I stopped listening to records from start to finish. It was far too time consuming and wasn't worth the benefit of getting the feel for the album as a whole. Enslaved is great in they're own right, but they are less...tamed than Opeth.
