    ... that use that creative use of notes/chords/whatever, because that's what i really like about opeth... i'm a guitar player myself and so far i haven't heard a band that is as efficient as opeth in using dissonances/awkward notes/whtvr (i haven't done any musical theory...) oh and btw i'm already familiar with motorpsycho should anyone mention them (probably not)...
    thnx people

    If you want tons of interesting melodies and stuff, then I agree with late Emperor. Prometheus is very dissonant and very melodic. Ix is more operatic.

    I don't know. There are a lot of bands with heavy dissonance, but most are a little too nonmusical for me.

    Thales are VERY much like Opeth but still don't sound like a ripoff IMO.. been one of my favorite bands for a couple years even though they aren't even signed

    Agalloch are a lot like early opeth and very fucking good. I recommend.

    Gorguts are the worlds most dissonant band.

    A lot of the earlier responses are definitely good bands to look into (Emperor is genius) but aside to Emperor, no one can effectively play anywhere near Opeth's ability, or at least, in my opinion.

    Well if you mean similiar in this manner: crunching chords and riffs, death vox with a mix of clean vox, and melodic...then I suggest to you this band...

    Novembers Doom

    Agalloch and Novembers Doom usually do not resemble and certainly do not emulate Opeth...

    I've seen November's Doom compared to Opeth in a number of music magazines; I haven't heard enough of the band to (dis)agree. I don't feel there's any band similar to Opeth soundwise, but there are many excellent bands with the same approach to writing progressive compositions (to name a few, Solefald, Orphaned Land, Rush, Camel, Porcupine Tree, Bal-Sagoth).

    But there is at least one band very similar...APRIL ETHEREAL
    :eek:

    Novembers Doom does certainly have an "opeth-ish" feel to them... there is definitely a difference... but there is also a bit of a similarity as well... hmmm
