Welcome to Round 3 Division 7 of Battle of the Prog Bands!  This time, our two contenders are Riverside and Opeth.  Vote for your favorite, and the band with the most votes will move onto Round 4.  Please do not vote unless you have listened to at least one album by both bands.

Round 4 Divsion 1 - October 22
Round 4 Division 2 - October 27
Round 4 Division 3 - October 30
 
Opeth is one of my greatest discoveries of late, and I just can't get enough of Still Life.  I never thought I would get into Metal, but they proved me wrong.  Unfortunately, I haven't heard Riverside so I can't vote.

Can you at least vote for the one you dislike less?

Opeth (and, like Mr UCB, I must thank this lot for getting me to like metal again).

I assume this is going to be a pummeling wipeout, no?

The damage that we do just goes on and on and on but not long enough.

I've gotta take Opeth. I love Riverside, but Opeth's music is another dimension apart from theirs for me.

I haven't heard Riverside and I'm not a huge fan of what little Opeth I've heard so far - I almost bought an Opeth album about a month ago, but instead I got Eric Dolphy's Out to LunchApprove

Riverside doesn't growl, so my vote they do get.

Not a big fan of either, but I'd take Second Life Syndrome over Damnation. While I think Opeth are stronger musically, at least more interesting for me, the growls just ruin the whole listening experience for me.
