broaden the audience.
Opeth are about as far from Death metal as you can get.. Yes Mikael has amazing death vocals but they are not nor have they ever been death metal. The
closest you could get to that would have been My Arms, Your Hearse simply because that was a heavier release across the course of the album..
Personally my favorites from them are Blackwater Park (the end where everything kicks back in tr00 kvlt!) and Still Life ..Though if you couldn't
guess I have been a bit of an Opeth fanboy over the past 15 years so...yah..
anyway..best black metal
I think you could take any of those say to someone, "this is BM"..
Anyway..I have been listening to Ihshan a lot recently...
Some great solid new death\doom would be Novembers Doom.
