So I Heard You Like Opeth...


My other lists:
Tasty Stuff Not Currently Featured On MS
Most Talented Vocalists In Metal

"Which bands sound like Opeth?" It seems that perennial question has plagued fans and non-fans of the band alike since their inception. I have created this list in an effort to guide those hapless souls to the answer. Feast your eyes the exhaustive list of bands who take the word influence too literally (barring the obvious) for the better or...for you to decide. Enjoy and don't hesitate to recommend any bands fitting this description.

Links to all bands not currently featured on Metal Storm are provided below:
Guillotine
Lunar
Pictura
The Advent Equation
Vinsta

Also I believe the band that influenced their old sound as well as their modern sound the most is Cathedral's album Stained Glass Stories. Though it obviously doesn't sound too much like Opeth but if you listen through it a couple times you will hear how Mikael listened to that shit a bunch.

Btw, I LOVE your Tasty MetalStorm list. Been cranking that stuff for over a week. Too bad Luke Kelly is really bad with his liner notes on what plugins he used for Holligans. DAMN IT
I'm really glad you enjoyed that list! I'm finally on holiday so expect some sick updates soon It is indeed a shame, he wrote one hell of a record...

The MOST Opeth sounding band that I've ever heard is this: ikuinen kaamos. Specifically their EP Closure.

How about some Ørkenkjøtt? A prime example of their likeness to Opeth: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8AX2TpAe5I

Martriden is another candidate for this list, although they have a bit of an Enslaved thing going on as well. Check out their latest album: http://martriden.bandcamp.com/

About Alley, their Weed album is even better than the Amphibious! Both are great though!

Great list!

That 'Weed' album is nice but it is probably the biggest copy of Opeth I have ever heard. Good but extremely unoriginal.

Have you considered adding Aquilus to your list? Quite many people online have been introduced to Aquilus thanks to someone's comparisons with Opeth.
