    With the roadrunner pack and new releases like Lamb of God and Children of Bodom, I was thinking Opeth in Rock Band could actually happen. Is this more of a label's decision or does the band decide on whether they want to be in? Has anyone in Opeth ever made any comments about Guitar Hero/Rock Band etc.? I think they're popular enough now to warrant it being considered.

    Maybe putting Fredrik in the band was a better idea than they thought...

    GTFO of this thread and post pics of the jacket :mad: :p

    And I know they like the game, but I don't think Opeth songs would work in the game.

    I disagree. They have 11 minute rush songs, why not some opeth?

    I reckon "the moor".

    ^ No matter, it would be a Watershed song. But I agree about thinking of songs that would be nice to play with that game. Too sick to find any, right now.

    I don't see why Opeth wouldn't work in Rock Band. They already have plenty of 10 minute songs, Rush, Metallica etc. They already have a couple of growling/screaming vocal songs (which I never thought I'd see in a rhythm game). I think it'd be a lot of fun to play one of the longer, really dynamic songs. Why no, second poster?

    It would be from Watershed no doubt, maybe GR by a long shot.

    And it would probably be PH or Burden which is an awful misrepresentation of Opeth as a whole. :erk:

    So yeah, it just wouldn't work.

    Heir apparent would be decent choice.

    Or Ghost of Perdition or The Drapery Falls, if it doesn't need to be from Watershed.

    The only reason I'm squeamish about the idea is that it will create a lot of fake Opeth fans who only know their songs from Rock Band, but claim they are the best band ever. And Rock Band is fun, get off your high horses just because you can play a real guitar.

    That's what I was about to say. It's a nice game... kinda pretty fun when there's many people playing and a lot of alcohol around.

    Opeth will never let themselves be on Rock band/Guitar Hero/Or any other shit where people think they can play instruments.

    You know how annoying it would be to hear some emo faggot say "OMG I JUST BEET DIZ EPIC HARDKORE SONG CALLED THE BAYIN OF TEH HOUNDS ON XPERTTTTT"

    However, If opeth does Choose to be on Gh or RB, I will respect it. But im shure they have thought about it.
