    I disagree, but I also disagree in the misnomer "prog" metal, because to me progressive means to push new boundaries of music (you know, like the old proggies from the 1970's), something that most "prog" metal bands do not do. Opeth has pretty distinct riffs I'll give them that, but strange song structures? How do you figure? They do one section at a time, most of which are just cut and pasted together. That's not strange at all, that's just adding another dimension (as in length) to typical pop structure. Also I'm not sure how unique they are outside of their riff structure.
    :lol: That is so awesome...

    Haha you're trying way too hard to agitate me over an internet forum. Way to go buddy.

    Typical progressive metal is just metal that sounds derivative of the old-school prog acts (who were actually progressive at the time). The term has become watered down over the ages, and refers to bands such as Andromeda and Dream Theater who make use of primarily clean vocals, instrumental "wankery" particularly in the guitar riffs and solos, (optional, yet common) keyboard passages, and technical (or pseudo-technical) time signature shifts. Real progressive metal (such as maudlin of the Well) is hard to come by these days, and is usually just referred to as "avant-garde" (99% of the time, falsely) by everybody. Opeth are pretty unique. Have you ever heard a band wth such astounding musicianship and changes from acoustic to electric in abrupt points in time like them? I challenge you to find a band that sounds exactly like Opeth, and until then I regard them as "pretty fucking unique."

    I don't really considered gothic, doom, or viking "genres" of metal per se. They don't have a unique sound, but rather a unique attitude.

    What's the difference between speed and thrash?

    Basically, speed is heavy metal played really fast. Maybe a bit more focus on rhythmic patterns as opposed to melody, somewhat more technical at times, but still similar.

    Thrash takes that to a new level, focusing on rhythm and riffage (often at the expense of vocal and melodies and even leads). Also generally more time changes and an angry vibe.

    That should clear that up.

    Well, umm... since when is Napalm Death a metal band?



    Black: Negura Bunget, Ashen Light, Dub Buk, Abigor, Moonblood, Deathspell Omega

    Death: Arghoslent, Lykathea Aflame, Cephalectomy, Behemoth, Defiled

    Thrash: Dark Angel, Nuclear Assault, Coroner, Slayer, Absu (call them black metal all you want, they sound like thrash to me!)

    Progressive: Fates Warning, Atheist, Bozzio Levin Stevens, newer Blind Guardian (meaning newer Blind Guardian is progressive, I like all Blind Guardian)

    Melodeath: Arsis, Abominant, umm... I'm not a fan of the genre and I can't think of anymore

    Power: older Blind Guardian, I would like to check out more power metal, but I slowly get to each genre... If anyone has any truly great power metal bands to recommend, go for it (no Iced Earth, mainstream bullshit)

    Gothic: all Gothic metal that I've heard is terrible, but I could be listening to the wrong things

    Doom: Candlemass, Morgion, Black Sabbath, St. Vitus

    Folk: meaning stuff like Nachtfalke, or more like Agalloch?

    Viking: I guess this is where Nachtfalke, Bathory, Enslaved, etc. would go.

    Grindcore: Pig Destroyer, Abaddon Incarnate, Napalm Death, Virulence



    Some other genres I would add are:

    Stoner/Dirt/Desert: Boris, Kyuss, Melvins, Electric Wizard, Sheavy, Sleep

    Avant-garde/Experimental Metal: Maudlin of the Well, Kekal, Sigh, !T.O.O.H.!

    Metalcore: Between the Buried and Me, Dillenger Escaple Plan, Converge
