    Seriously, did you have to use the word 'hardcore'?

    Anyway, let's see if I can compile a list:

    Light side:

    1. Coil
    2. Windowpane
    3. Harvest
    4. Hours of Wealth
    5. Benighted
    6. Hope Leaves
    7. Patterns in the Ivy II
    8. Credence
    9. Isolation Years
    10. To Bid You Farewell

    Dark side:

    1. Karma
    2. Demon of the Fall
    3. Ghost of Perdition
    4. Bleak
    5. Blackwater Park
    6. Serenity Painted Death
    7. The Night and the Silent Water
    8. In Mist She Was Standing
    9. Heir Apparent
    10. Wreath

    Not in any kind of order.

    Edit: By the way, I'd like to point out that 'soft' is not an antonym for 'dark'.

    Is A Fair Judgement "Soft" or "Hardcore", or neither?

    Coil keeps playing on my stereo. At first it seems simple enough, but really grew on me.

    If there is visible penetration, it is hardcore and costs extra.

    Many of the heaviest have lighter moments than the 'light' songs, so I see no point in trying.

    I don't exactly categorize Opeth songs, cause more often than not they are a mixture of mellow and heavy.

    I can't do this categorizing thing, but I think I've seen only one person mention Still Day... <--- Bless you.:saint:

    I love that song!
