:twisted: I like this band OPETH. has anyone else checked them out? also does anyone know if THRICE, is worth my money? I hate buying cd's and then regretting them,because when you sell them back to the cd store, they only give you like 4 bucks, after you paid 15. anyway, I gotta go help my three-year old with her puzzles.......ciao!

I use soulseek to find out if some cd-s are worth buying. Personally I wouldn't buy a Thrice album but you might like it.

I think that Opeth is highly overrated. Decent music, but people make it out to be more than what it is.

Feel free to give them all to me... ;)

I know, after getting 4 bucks for my QSA album, I just keep all the crappy discs around to trade with gullible friends.

for Opeth buy either:
1) Blackwater Park if you want heavy death metal Opeth or
2) Damnation if you want new mellow Opeth

both are great for how different they are

Opeth is amazing, easily some of the most well written music ever.

A Fair Judgement is one of the best songs ever written IMO.

It's on their album Deliverance.

I have to say that Opeth's Damnation album has some of the best (conventionally-placed) guitar solos I've ever heard. They sound like they're about to go right to shit, but then come back to something great. I really like that album, although I don't know much of their other (actual metal) stuff.

I have all their albums, I used to be a big fan. It gets old after a while though.

I recommend "My Arms, Your Hearse", "Blackwater Park" ,"Still Life", "Deliverance" (in order) for their metal stuff. What is good is that there is always 1 or 2 songs on each CD that is mellow and even the metal they play isn't the most brutal stuff ever.

I'm seeing them on Halloween (Oct. 31st; my birthday) in Philadelphia.

I heard they're pretty amazing live. Their new album is so good.

yeah i saw them in Melbourne a year or two ago. They are awesome live and the band had this amazing chemistry and banter going between the fans and them. maybe it was because i was just at a reltively small venue.

I watched the Lamentations DVD last night and felt compelled to bump this thread. That was easily one of the best music DVDs that I have seen in a really long time. Their live sound is incredible, and the vocalist exceeded my expectations for a live performance.

Fucking magic. I highly recommend this DVD if you like the mellow stuff (although there are five of the heavier tracks on there as well).

I went out and bought two of their cd's morningrise and my arms, your hearse after hearing them through a friend (and his constant saying that they were the best band ever, yada yada yada) and I thought it was cool at first but then I realized that I hated it after listening through the whole cd. The whole metal growling voice gets on your nerves after awhile and a lot of the lyrics are laughable...
