    We should do the UM-Opethforum Band, something like:

    Guitars: me =|
    Guitars: RoadKing (guess he plays guitars, right?)
    Bass: ? (don't know any bassist lol)
    Drums: MixGrafix
    Vocals: Waz (wouldn't mind him writing lyrics too if they arent like this.....!!!!!!!...... PEAC EOUT)

    Producer: Moonlapse
    Engineer: & sound technician: Soundave
    Cover/Artwork Artist: Godhead56
    Misanthropic Marketing: Mr. Samsara
    Official Powertab Tabber: Wankerness


    Now that I think of it, we would probably have too many guitarists...
    I left out many people on purpose not based on hate or whatever, just this is an incomplete and, well... useless thing.
    Would be cool if we could make a forum album though :kickass:

    Tarja and Mikael are almost complete opposites - operatic and shrill vs. folksy and warm. But maybe that's what you were going for? It would be very interesting musically, but I don't think these people would be able to stand each other - you can't just mix a bunch of Swedes and Finns and expect them to get along (or have things changed since the last time I heard?).

    They are probably the closest thing to Folk Drone I can think of. Although they aren't drone. Funeral Folk Doom:eek:

    ^And they're a PROGRESSIVE band, obviously, because no one else is playing as fast as they do.
