" @Ahmad_Metallic: You listened to their new stuff, I assume? The older music is superior. Anyway, this may be an unfair poll. In Flames is far more well known than Opeth. Just saying. "i know. one of the main reasons in flames beat opeth whenever there's a swedish metal award or whatever
this is hard to answer because they're vastly different bands, it's like asking if i like Nile or Devin Townsend more, it's not really on an even kilter, in flames and dimension zero or whathaveyou would make sense
having said though
i guess in flames cause i'm not a fan of opeth :P
I listened to some more Opeth now, and they're pretty good, but I enjoy my metal with a little more punch. Btw, have you listened to Scar Symmetry?
"Opeth, without a shadow of doubt. In Flames have been pretty mediocre at best since after Clayman. "
I beg to differ...
Reroute to Remain and Come Clarity are really good albums.
Soundtrack... and A Sense... not so much, indeed.
But i'm still not very charmed by Opeth's 'Watershed' album either.
It simply just doesn't grab me.
Overall, i must say that Opeth has my vote.

" Entombed. Fuck gay metal. "going to listen to some Entombed ASAP, which album do u recommend? and thank you. what makes our "gay" metal gay ? "
Wolverine Blues, Serpent Saints - The Ten Amendments, Clandestine. No problem.
Maybe the "gay metal" part was a bit unnecessary, but there are three points to it - first, I do not take my or others music seriously at all, second, I find Åkerfeldt plausible only on Dan Swano's work and third, anything after Reroute to Remains. Damn. Anyway, I will proceed without throwing anymore flamebait here, so please take my apologies and rejoice knowing the beautiful screaming, growling and head-ripping riffs of Entombed.
Also, if I were super serious, I would post "Motorhead". Because only Elvis and The Beatles can fight these guys and hope for a draw.
" Opeth, without a shadow of doubt. In Flames have been pretty mediocre at best since after Clayman. "This.
Though I don't understand the point in comparing two completely different sounding bands to each other. Dark Tranquillity would be the logical match-up against In Flames since they're both two of the first bands that helped created the melo-death genre. Opeth is progressive metal.
" @nanikore said:" @Ghostiet said:how hetro .. "" Entombed. Fuck gay metal. "Entombed is the band that has five flying penises chasing each other as album art. "
Since when a cock is not hetero? Flying pussies could be weird.
[stupid joke] Hey, pussies! They could post this topic as album art! [/stupid joke]
Very tough to pick one of these great bands but I would go with In Flames. Its much more accessible then Opeth. Blackwater Park is the shit though.
On a side note, I always love reading comments from people who refuse to accept progression in music. If you are an In Flames man and you cant appreciate Come Clarity then you need to stop listening to In Flames. Hell it was just voted best Swedish album of the decade.

"Oh come on, I bet you like In Flames more, you are always too afraid to pick a favorite when it comes too music Also, not a suprise that you couldnt pick a favorite lol "
Really like them both very much, so i cant put a vote here :/"
im not afraid to pick a favorite? but when it comes to these two, they're equal for me.
