The whole idea of the creation of Opeth was to create the most intelligent

I can give that credit to Opeth, but listening to Mozart doesn't make you as brilliant as Mozart. The same goes for Opeth.
Besides, making your music more progressive or "intelligent" doesn't make it better music. No matter how technically challenging or progressive the structure of the song is, there must be some meat to it.
