    Hey guys, new to the forum, and new to Opeth, I just wanted to know some stuff to check out from them, I also have my own forum as well http://Opeth.15.forumer.com/ ... and tell me what's special about the band and stuff.

    My recommendation (you'll get plenty): if your looking to get an album start off with Deliverance or Blackwater Park. If your looking for songs to download, and if your totally new to death metal vocals, download The Drapery Falls, White Cluster, Reverie/Harlequin Forest, or Deliverance.

    Why do you have an opeth forum if you don't know the band? Have you heard ANY of Opeths music?

    Yeah I've heard a lot of clips, and a few songs, they are genius.

    Well I've heard Cannibal Corpse style vocals, and I don't think they're like that.

    UH 3 albums??! DEFINITELY these 3:

    1.BLACKWATER PARK
    2.MY ARMS YOUR HEARSE
    3.STILL LIFE

    and if you want to hear the mellow side of opeth, definitely DAMNATION.
    but for a beginner i would definitely go with those three. in order of best beginner album to worst.

    3 albums:
    Blackwater Park
    Damnation
    Still Life

    I don't like MAYH as much, but most people seem to, so try out that one too. They're all amazing really.
