What the...??


  • Axl Rosenberg

Reader Rich H. (no, not that Rich H.) sent us the below video, which suggests that “The Lotus Eater” from Opeth’s 2008 opus, Watershed, is a rip-off of Immortal’s “Cryptic Winterstorms,” from 1992’s Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism.

Now, I fucking LOVE Opeth, so I hate to say negative about them… but it’s hard not to hear the similarities between the two riffs. It’s also hard to imagine that Mikael Akerfeldt hasn’t heard Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism. So… make of this what you will, I guess.

So, what does everyone think? Weigh in below.
