Opeth Have Found Their Identity

Having grown up on a diet of classic and death metal, Opeth leaned toward the darker side initially, although repeated listens to prog rock led to a combination of the two. "It took us a couple of years to find a musical identity," guitarist Peter Lindgren tells Omar Perez of Orlando Weekly. "Prog rock taught us that a song can be 15 minutes long and doesn't have to have a classical structure, and that it can be an adventure."

I won't comment on that whole post, but I will say that some of the best metal is good for agression AND relaxation for me.
