    This is super super wierd! This was seen on a billboard, so I searched the cruise line that was being advertised, and wholah! The Opeth symbol!

    What's even dumber is the logo looks pretty out of place in that site design. Probably because the last thing I associate with the Opeth logo is boat cruises.

    It's a "stock photo"? The Opeth logo isn't copyrighted?

    This is an absolutely amazing find though. Also, don't their industries overlap with Melloboat? Eh?

    I just sent them a message pretending to be from some copyright infringement office.. lol

    hmm.. they aren't very smart. In the confirmation message I looked at the source and it shows the email address that my message was sent to. They need to learn javascript.

    here... brian@culwells.com

    spam away.
