    I know Amon Amarth, Daylight Dies, Anathema , Paradise Lost, and Amorphis are some I should check out, but which albums??!?!
    I already have most 70s prog classics, obscure and well known...and I know Agalloch already! But any others I'd appreciate and of course I know modern 90s mainstream or cult following metal like Tool, Katatonia, Dimmu Borgir... and the Dan Swano projects!
    any help appreciated...:headbang:

    Bands don't sound like Opeth. There's too many factors. Even if you've got the growls, decent cleans, acoustic guitars, metal riffs, solos, then after that the chances you also have similar riff complexity and the friggin autumn feeling are slim to none.

    Agreed
    just look for other progressive metal bands, like Orphaned Land or Between the Buried and Me or Enslaved

    This is the untruth. It's quite good, but I wouldn't say much. There has to be more similar!!!
