or floyd, that would be too predictable.

so Riverside beated PoS, Ayreon and DT but its falling against Opeth, weird because i think DT would beat Opeth... easily.

Riverside - but not by a great deal. They were really good when I saw them live in a little place in London a couple of years back.

I love Riverside, and they beat 95% of other Prog Metal, but Opeth is nigh on untouchable in this area.

Wow, first time I really don't know who to vote.
Two mighty fine bands. I'de have gone for Opeth if we were just after Blackwater Park or Deliverance but right now I'm lost.

See, initially, the growled vocals were what put me off Opeth. But, as I listened to them more, I realised this: Growled is just another word for glorious.
