    'In Harmonia Universali' by Solefald
    'Mabool' by Orphaned Land
    'Leaving Your Body Map' by Maudlin Of The Well
    'Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk' by Emperor
    'Focus' by Cynic

    Shit...I don't think I could keep at just five, few more:

    'Metamorphogenesis' by Esoteric
    The new Deathspell Omega
    'The Forlorn' by Ikuinen Kaamos

    There should be few other threads like this. If you look back at the last few pages you should find a couple.

    I haven't heard all of it, but Ihsan's (I think that's how you spell it) AngL is supposedly amazing.

    Enslaved- Vertebrae
    Agalloch - The Mantle
    Orphaned Land - Mabool
    Hollenthon - With Vilest of Worms to Dwell
    Unexpect - In a Flesh Aquarium

    Those are some of my favorites in the last ten years. Of course there are great classics like:

    Metallica - Master of Puppets
    Iron Maiden - Killers
    Judas Priest - Stained Class
    Black Sabbath - Master of Reality
    Slayer - Reign in Blood

    You did say any metal, right?

    Well there's a LOT out there that's similar to Opeth but are you looking for similar but by different bands, or good but different from Opeth?

    Not necessarily my top 5 albums, but if you're an opeth fan, these are similar but different, otherwise just get Last.fm listen to a bunch of music then a week later get the fire.fm application for firefox and just set the station to "My Recommended". It will pull up music that you may like based on what users with your similar music history listen to, but you do not have in your playlist history.

    Enslaved - Monumension
    Enslaved - Below the Lights
    Mastodon - Leviathan/Remission (leviathan is better for a new listener)
    At The Gates - Slaughter of the Soul
    Edge of sanity - Crimson II

    If you are as big a metal noob as the post suggests, I might put off Deathspell Omega, Emperor, and Enslaved for a bit.
    Try these:

    Candlemass - Nightfall
    Black Sabbath - Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath
    Iron Maiden - Number of the Beast
    Katatonia - Last Fair Deal Gone Down
    My Dying Bride - The Dreadful Hours
    Nevermore - Dead Heart in a Dead world

    Don't listen to these faqqots

    Lately I have been listening to:
    Centinex - Decadence: Prophecies of Cosmic Chaos
    Rapture - Futile
    Witchery - Symphony for the Devil
    Solitude Aeternus - Into the Depths of Sorrow
    Funeral - From these Wounds

    Btw, these are not my favorite albums. Favoratives are for lossers.
