    I don't think Opeth was really influenced by In Flames. I think they both started growing as bands around the same time.

    Storm of the Light's Bane is a very good album. I like The Somberlain a little better, though. The style is sort of thrashy with some black metal influences. The new album Reinkaos is coming on April 30 in Europe. I thought the singer/guitarist got a longer sentence for murder back in 1997, but he came out of jail back in 2004 and the band released a single called Maha Kali. It didn't seem to be something to get too excited over. The new will be better, hopefully.

    Gothenburgh (In Flames, Opeth, Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquillity etc) is just like any other metal scene for the last 20 years. They were influenced by older bands no doubt for example Death Metal and Heavy Thrash that was coming from the UK and US, Morbid Angel, Death, Naplam Death, Slayer. Carcass and At the Gates are probabaly the two earliest bands from the Gothenburgh or Melodic Death scene (Carcass?) but really everyone influenced each other. The almost incestuous In Flames and Dark Tranquillity are the best example of this. As the bands say in numerous interviews, everyone who came from that scene was friends, just like the earlier British, Grindcore (and eventually Death Metal scene), it was, for want of a better word, insular; it's only little niche of friends...like the black circle...but without all the church burning and silliness. Read Mudrain's "Choosing Death", the last two or so chapters deal with this, you might find it quite useful. So yes I'd agree Opeth was influenced by In Flames and vice versa.

    Storm of the Light's Bane is one of the best metal records ever. Brilliant. That record always reminded me more of Opeth than Agalloch ever did.

    maybe i'm wrong, but i thought opeth was from stockholm. and i'd think at the gates was more influential on the swedish metal scene than arch enemy.

    So far as i'm aware yes. But more or less any melodic metal to come out of Sweden is reffered to as being art of the Gothenburgh metal scene, i've never heard it reffered to as the Stockholm metal scene. It would make a lot more sense it if was though. And i defiently agree with you about At the Gates, Although i'm slightly hazy on the histroy of Carcass, I know Micheal Amott's Swedish, but are the considered a Gothenburgh band?

    Where dead angels lie by Dissection is probably my fav metal tune ever. Definitely a masterpiece by Mr Jon. Put that song first on when you get the CD ironbeard :)

    They're American I think, although Amott is the genius behind that band.

    Carcass is from the UK. The Amott brothers have an English father and a swedish mother. They have basically lived their whole life in Sweden.

    It's just me getting confused between Carcass and Carnage. And Carcass are Britsih yes, basically it's me being a divvy.

    SotLB is a dull, very dated sounding album. I would skip it. It's blandly produced and the songs are stretched out way too long.

    TJR, however, is quite good. Concise, memorable songs with clear production and strong melodic leads. Soloing is very good.
