    It isn't commercial in a sense that it's radio friendly music, but the internet makes their music much more accessible.
    Most teens that are fans of metal should know who Opeth is.
    Your second point in general is more likely.

    The last Opeth show I went I did some fan gazing.
    I was surprised at how many more mature fans were there.
    I'd say a third of the crowd was 25 to 50 years of age.

    I'm 17 and I adore them. In my city I guess only me and a girl are listening to them.

    18, been listening since I was 12, I dont consider myself to be "young" and I really cannot relate to the younger fans that have been discribed so far in this post.

    Yeah, I noticed that too. But I have to say, I also saw them in Munich in 2005, and the audience has become slightly younger.

    I played the "Soldier Of Fortune"-cover to my parents recently, and since they grew up listening to Deep Purple, they were totally into it.
    My mom also heard "Burden" the other day, and she loved it. She´s almost 50 now. That generation-meeting thing is really interesting with Opeth.

    Maybe you have become older and everyone seems younger. It happens!

    I know you are new to Opeth, but can't help to find this a bit irritating:
    "Especially their singles, obviously"???????
    "Ghost Reverse"?

    Do check them out though, their 'singles' are not the best that is out there.

    Age is nothing. I'm 52 and I'm a big fan - got all cd's and dvd's. My fiancée is 42 and loves them too. My son - who introduced them to me - is 27.

    We went - all the three of us - and saw them two weeks ago. Awesome gig!!

    Errr...that doesn´t make any sense at all. It has nothing to do with my age when the audience has become a bit younger. ;)
