I like Blackfield.But I voted Anathema.They're better.And they have a doom/death metal past too.

Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

Extreme prog metal rules!!!

I would need to listen to more of each band. Like what I've heard by each though.

Anathema have a way with soundscapes that puts them well ahead of Blackfield in my books...

Anathema only take this because Alternative 4 and Judgement are the two best melancholic rock/metal albums of recent years. Otherwise it's closer, and of a lesser overall quality.

Blackfield
Nothing can last

Never give a day away.

Anathema, even though I consider Blackfield's first two albums great.

how can you say itīs just because of alternative 4 and judgement? anathema have an history with great albums before and after those two albums, namely eternity, AFDTE, natural disater and WHBWH (one of the best releases last year).
 
Blackfield has two great albums (the first 2). Blackfield II is one of my favourite albums but honestly welcome to my dna is weak (musically and lyrically).
 
comparing a band like anathema that have evolved and done a few reference albums in its genre since 1991 to a band that has 3 studio albums (being one ("dna") kind of weak for blackfield/steven wilsonīs standards) is not really comparable...
"when routine bites hard and ambitions are low,
and resentment rides high but emotions wonīt grow
And weīre changing our ways, taking different roads..
Then love, love will tear us apart again.."
