Death by 1000 miles. They popularized death metal so we can talk about it now.

Chuck Schuldiner was an absolute hero of heavy metal.  Opeth is pretty good.

I'd still rather listen to Opeth.

I can't vote. Way too different and love 'em both.

Ever heard Death's cover of Painkiller?

Not a huge fan of either but if I were forced at gunpoint I would choose Death (ha! get it?)

How come these polls rarely have 'none of the above'?

It's assumed that if one doesn't like either of the bands, one would simply refrain from participating...or commenting.

Opeth because the perform more melodic prog tunes as well as the metal.

Opeth is the more developed metal sound, and more melodic. Still Life is the only Death Metal album that I'd give 4/5 stars to, and the only one I've really considered buying Ermm

Death had better guitarists than Opeth. Opeth is not even close.

^ It's all opinion, and people don't like changing their opinions.

The thing someone is better/worse guitarist isn't an opinion.

Wasn't talking about that so much as posting stuff like that isn't going to make anyone change or regret their vote. =P

And Chuck, Masdival, LaRouque etc. played a very different style of death metal in Death than Akerfeldt and Lindgren in Opeth. I don't think Chuck could have written an Opeth song, and Akerfeldt couldn't have written a Death song. If that makes sense. LOL

Andy LaRocque was widely known as King Diamond guitarist, his style definitely developed to the point of extreme. Opeth were just kids playing metal.

And Death started as a thrash-y and punk-y band with unique-at-the-time vocals. Both kept improving and drawing influences from other genres and are far more refined than when they started.

Also, wrong guitarist! Meant Rick Rozz. Embarrassed

Not wrong, Andy played on Individual Thought Patterns and brought his unique style that pushed Death forward. Opeth were later and they actually didn't show anything new at the time they started.
