I am going to open a page this evening on the latest developments in quantum theory. I can guarantee that I will make far more sense of it than ever trying to understand how you can remotely ask people to compare these two.

Actually, I will assume it was a joke.

Opeth should definitely do a cover of 'For my Lady' That's what death metal lacks; the ability to turn out quality sea shanties.

Opeth, but not by much. I'm not really a big fan of either of them.
