Theres this one song on the new album I love, The Lotus Eater, but I've given a few of their albums a try now and I just really can't seem to sit through them. When I saw them at Download in 06 they seemed really, really good live, but I couldn't properly enjoy it because the content just didn't sit right with me.
What a really annoying band, haha.
I haven't actually heard their most recent album yet :/. My favourite song by them I've heard is probably The Moor.
My friends assure me that their stuff will grow on me eventually if I give it time. I hope it does ^^
Opeth continually grow on me; the music just sounds better and better the more that I listen to it.
At first I didn't get why people said they were so good; but the appreciation just took a while! I do like them a lot now.
I like Katatonia very much too; although I found them easier to get into than Opeth.
atreyu, silverstein, rise against, avenged sevenfold anyone??? and biffy clyro are amazing but they're not really metal ooo and all that remains!! none of those are actually metal are they? screamo? melodicore?
I always thought Emperor weren't bad musically but the vocals were attrocious. Nightwish were great before they got rid of Tarja-now they're just your average female fronted metal band. They no longer have distinction. I'm fond of Rhapsody and Dragonforce but the cheesiness of the lyrics can lose its appeal after a while. I'm mainly into classic old metal such as Maiden and Sabbath.
I guess I'd class myself as more of a blues/rock kind of guy in musical tastes. Bands like GnR, Zeppelin, Black Crowes etc.
