goat of all time metal band
 | 
United States NAwillriseagain 
opeth from 1996-2005 they released seven albums with an unmatched level of quality. most bands can put together at most 3-4 great albums. in order to find a comparable run, youd need to look outside of metal in every other genre. even beyond those seven albums, they have never released a bad album (though they have ventured outside of metal for all of recent history) included in that list is a contender for best metal album of all time (blackwater park) and best song ( youtube.com/watch?v=4oWhkjQWE24) i think an important mark for goat of all time is innovation, and opeth checks that box as well

Very good pick, but personally Megadeth are number 1 for me.

black sabbath, judas priest, metallica, megadeth are all great bands, but let's try to have a metal discussion not involving them. slipknot doesnt fit into that category, but try not to mention them either

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.

i respect death, but i personally never cared much for their stuff. not sure why, but i guess at the end of the day it's all subjective

+1 to the subjective part. If you ever decide to give them a deeper dive, I guess based on the fact that you are an Opeth fan, you should check The Sound of Perserverance, Symbolic and Individual Thought Patterns out.

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
2022-08-26 19:37
