    well, that's kind a exactly what that singer of CoB does all the time when he bashes yet another band for not being metal and guitarmasturbating enough ...

    Well that's what I've been trying to explain. Sorry if I came across as an ignoramus...
    It's just not my cup of tee and sounds boring to my ears.
    To each his own!

    Sorry if I started a flaming contest by mentioning CoB but listen to the " Silent Night,Bodom Night " or " Hate Me "...These are melodic songs there aren't much riffs in it.

    In my Time of Need.

    Mellow Opeth is as good as Heavy Opeth IMO. The diverse range of music is why I love Opeth:kickass:

    I really wasn't coming up with a clear winner until I read your post. I agree with IMTON. The melody just flows like a wave in that song...

    Firstly, what alexi laiho says about other badns is pretty irrelevant to the point i was making.
    Secondly, as far as i know, John Petrucci is pretty much the only guy that alexi flames because he thinks hes too cold and emotionless. Yes he deserves a smack in the head for saying that. Although in later interviews he admitted that john petrucci was a much better guitarist than him.

    And to cob-haters. I challenge you to listen to the whole song "kissing the shadows" without getting at least one hard-on during the song :p

    He bashed Opeth pretty hard as well ...
    And it is very relevant. I judge people by their own standards, I treat them accordingly, so if he thinks it's appropiate to behave in such a way, then he should expect pretty much the same stuff back.

    Just listened ... no hard-on. Guitar-masturbating chaos in a simple format.

    edit: I can understand how this shit is appealing to many people though, and how it can be fun when drunk and wanting to just have a good time. But don't act as if it's of the highest standard ...

    I don't hate CoB.
    That's a strong word, I just don't like their music and attitude AND kissing the shadows ^^,
    and maybe i'd hate it if I had to listen to it when I'm in a bad mood.
    And maybe that's because I used to listen to similar music like Blind Guardian (apart from the vocal arrangements, which are way different) and a lot of other melodic power metal-whatever bands but that is like 6 years ago for me and it just doesn't do it for me anymore and I'm a bit fed up with this stuff...

    Anyway, this thread turned into COB-talk :loco:

    It actually wasnt an interview, it was a response to a fan in question in the january 2006 issue of Guitar World magazine.

    Firstly, when did he bash Opeth? What did he say? Ive never heard of this.

    Secondly, im not saying its the highest standard, nor should you say it isnt the highest standard, its all relative to personal taste. cob happens to be one of my favourite bands because i enjoy the guitar/keyboard melodies that combine elements of classical music and metal.

    I still think the intro to Moonlapse Vertigo is the best thing I've ever heard. But I'm a big TLP fan too :headbang:

    I'd have to say Face of Melinda hands down. Especially the live version. I always get an urge to sing along to that song alone. ( Even fill in the awesome YEAH! in the live one XD )

    I have no understanding of how The Leper Affinity could be their most melodic song....wouldn't more of the harmonic stuff from Orchid or Morningrise be more melodic? I'm going with Night and Silent Water, In Mist She Was Standing, or Forest of October.
