    first saw them when i was 13/14. Got me hooked pretty quickly as i was amazed such music existed, i had never heard anything like it. I changed the way i saw music and opened me up to a huge amount of talented artists which further fuelled my passion for sound. For that i thank them.

    They ve capitalized a 5 year musical journey for me. A Grand Culmination of the different types of music that have enriched my life (except gangsta rap) over the years.

    Just fininshed listening to Morningrise, and after a three day stress fest, all is forgoten till next time. With no substance abuse, only music.

    they are a special band: great musicians, great writers, overall phenominal artists.

    in all honesty though, i really do love Opeht. they opened so many doors for me, musically, and they got me into playing guitar and really just loving music as much as i do.

    Opeth: one of the only bands I know of that can keep me interested throughout a 20 minute song. (no, a Change of Seasons doesn't do it ;) )
    Fuckin' Opeth!!!!

    yea Opeth rule, no doubt about it. They have opened my eyes to so much new music and so many genres (prime one being 70's prog) that I had previously hardly explored. Also, not many metal bands come to New Zealand apart from the really well known ones so I wana say a special thanks to Mike and the boys for that. They really are a musicians/fans band if you know what I mean.

    Cheers Opeth :kickass:
