Very good pick, but personally Megadeth are number 1 for me.
rename thread my favourite metal band
It's Death and it's not even close. Only one album that could be considered "mediocre" (Spiritual Healing), the rest are all either good, or great. They also pioneered the Death Metal genre, along with Tehcnical and Progressive Death Metal.
Iron Maiden. Maybe Manowar
Opeth is definitely a good shout, although I still do think it's so hard to call one band "the goat of the metal genre". I like Opeth, but it's far from one of my favorite metal bands as well.
Never cared for Opeth but mine is Rosetta. Imo they never released a bad album, and they been going at it since mid2000s. I still listen to and am impressed by Wake/Lift to this day and I'm amazed that they could "perfect" their sound by their sophomore album. Monument is one of the most crushing things I've heard, and I also listen to shit like Arachnotaur and Wormphlegm which aim at being as heavy/bleak as possible.
opeth is respectable but if ur not into prog its very easy to just not care about the band
Opeth always reinvents themselfs which makes them very high on my list, but to put them on a clear nr1 ?
+1, i love both oldpeth and newpeth, they got me into brutal vocals and their tamer songs are just as good definitely one of the best bands for me, possibly even the best. i even use a phone cover with an opeth "o" that i had custom made
After megadeth I’d definitely go with Lamb of God , I love all of their albums and memento Miri in particular is a masterpiece , not to mention that their new singles slap as well
Yea Opeth is awesome
For me it's easy tho.. between the buried and me
Every album they put out is simply outstanding
