Opeth is another band that I got into early on when getting into the international metal scenes. I first heard the band on a Celtic Frost tribute album that I bought on a fly, and their incredible version of "Circle of the Tyrants" blew me away. However, it was not until picking up Still Life, that I found out about the incredible depth and dynamics of this truly unique band. Combining death metal and progressive metal, Opeth can be relentlessly extreme one minute, and beautifully complex the next. They have truly been one of my favorite bands since I first heard them and were one of the first extreme metal bands I saw in concert.
FAVORITE ALBUM: STILL LIFE
