I was listening to Liquid Metal on XM this morning on my way to school and OPETH came on, the song was Under The Weeping Moon. What the fuck is wrong with this stuff lol. Im not trying to bash OPETH or anything there fans just why the hell do they make the song seem like its over 10 times, play a 10 minute song, have a 3 intro type part in the middle of the song go from super super slow to fast which is decent but back to slow then fast then slow then fast then you think its over and it starts again. AHHH i was so annoyed. This is not the first time i heard OPETH but it seems like all there songs are like this.

Not ALL their songs are like this, but alot are. They're progressive metal, and dam good progressive metal at that. Their music is what it is, its weird and its wonderful. Asking why a band do what they do is a silly question, because 9 times out of 10 the answer is simple, its because they want to.

Not to people who don't know the difference between "there", "their" and "they're" (all three are misused above). Move on.

I've only listened to Watershed but I find Opeth's transitions to be very awkward.

This bothers me so much, almost as much as "Opeth songs are 10 minutes long, what's up with that"?

Heavy metal is music, not a formula, get over it.

Yeah, really. One of us should start a thread called "Ten-Minute-Plus-Songs-That-Totally-Fucking-Rock...GO!!!". I'll bet that would shut some fuckers up quick. ;)

By whom? Symphony X? I suppose (I've never been much of a fan of theirs).

I was thinking more long the lines of:

Isis - Hand of the Host
Grayceon - Still the Desert
Pelican - The Woods
Neurosis - Purify (and many others)
Tool - Third Eye, Reflection, Roseta Stoned
Mastodon - The Czar, The Last Baron, Hearts Alive

...ya know, shit like that.

Yeah it's Symphony-X. Nearly 25 minutes of epic as epic as epic gets.

Lets go ahead and do that. I have a feeling there would be a lot of Between The Buried And Me and The Mars Volta on that list.

I think I could field 100 serious answers for that list as a low estimate.

EDIT: I have 246 10-minute plus songs in iTunes. So, yeah.

We've been over this.

You do not like Tool, therefore you are wrong.

Remember? ;)

I think i could do quite a few as well. Not quite 100 but proably in the 60-70 range.
