    The television. Heard Deliverance off Music Choice channels on digital cable. Then I dled it and a bunch of their other songs. Funny that if it weren't for mp3 dling, I probably wouldn't have bought any of their cds.

    My best friend introduced me to their music a few years back. I was already into old school metal, i.e. Metallica, Iron Maiden, etc. I only heard bits and pieces (20-30 seconds here and there) of Opeth before and I wasn't quite attracted to it. But then I heard Bleak all the way through. Hooked ever since. And since, I've gotten a few friends, my girlfriend, and even my dad into them.

    I introduced myself to them.
    I have introduced a few friends to Opeth, one listens to them occationally.
    One didn't like the growls at first so I bought him Damnation for his birthday a few years ago... Then he got Blackwater Park a few months later and told me Damnation sucked compared to the heavy stuff, and now he's a big fan.

    My dad liked Opeth so I grew up with it. I used to hate it, when I was like 8 I called it "devil music". At that point, only Orchid was released. By the time MAYH came out, I liked them ok. MAYH isn't my favorite but it got me into them. But Still Life was when i became a die-hard Opeth fan and I've been having masturbatory episodes about Opeth since....(their music...I swear!)

    My dad had it blasting in his studio all the time. The atmospheric/acoustic part of "Under The Weeping Moon" used to haunt me....and it still kind of does

    i really can't remember. one of my friends made me listen to "Drapery Falls".
    i liked all the clean parts instantly, and after the dm vox grew on me, i was hooked. i got my sister, mom, and several other friends into opeth. ;)

    haha, that's funny. my parents mainly listen to jazz and classical and the furthest they've gone into rock music was the beatles. so I was pretty much suprised when I was playing Opeth and my dad was like "omgwtf this is very good music!". Not that I've made my parents into Opeth fans now, but they totally respect the band :)

    i was blasting Meshuggah today in my car, and i was about to get out, so my door was open..my mom just pulled in the driveway too, and came over and closed my door. i got out and she was like that is TERRIBLE. i'm like WHAT? it's awesome. she's like it sounds like the devil (says it about all bands i listen to w/death vox haha). so i was like okay mom. i said...hmm ever hear of a thing called an OPINION? maybe i think your music is shitty.

    i listen to satannnnnnnnnn

    brian, i love you and your stories.
    also, i picture you living next to tony soprano.

    unrelated: there are two flies in my listening/computing room and they are trying to mate. this is probably not good. right?

    I t was more or less recommended by a user on the ign.com board, in 2003. He hyped them a lot (along with Pain of Salvation) and I was bored one night and by accident I downloaded the song that is my favorite song of all bands . Blackwater Park. Back then, I did not like it, the growls turned me off. I liked the calm section though. However, I did delete it. Then, one day later, I got it again because I couldnt get the part I liked out of my head. Then I deleted it again. Finally, some days later, I thought "why not check out more than song?". I ended up downloading BWP and BTPISIO. I liked the growls all of a sudden and I remember liking BTPISIO more than BWP but thought they were both kind of similar. Maybe because of the song length.. I got basically all Opeth music I could get but it took me months to complete my discography..


    i turned noone into a hardcore Opeth fan. My punk brother thinks of them as a band with satanic lyrics because of the growls. My girlfriend likes their mellow stuff but not the growls. They make her laugh..... I gave some songs to a friend of mine who likes them but is too much of a Tool fan to be an Opeth fan. I mean, Tool is his focus of attention and some time has to pass before he truly recognzies Opeth's talent - maybe - I hope.
