I've just seen this on my wall, Opeth and Katatonia shared it. The poll is based upon it.

Nice band descriptions

This poll needs Dismember. 

As for my vote, I haven't quite decided between Opeth or Katatonia. I'll be back.

Opeth it is. Meshuggah as a close second, and then Katatonia. Oh, that inspired me to give TGCD a spin, I listened to it like ages ago.

I haven't heard all of these, but I know for sure my top 3 are:

1. Pain of Salvation
2. Diablo Swing Orchestra
3. Opeth

Also:

4. Meshuggah
5. Edge of Sanity

And not a band but Yngwie Malmsteen has to be mentioned...

Then that website is terrible and you should feel bad for choosing to reference them.

I did wrong and feel ashamed, I shall be more prudent from now on. Not including Bathory indeed brought disgrace not only to the said digital community, but it also rebounded on my sorry self. The very fact of putting Arch Enemy and Dark Tranquility in Bathory's stead on the list, makes the whole situation even graver, reaching the point of being outrageous. I wholeheartedly assure you, it won't happen again since cuiusvis hominis est errare, nullius nisi insipientis in errore perseverare.

Opeth for me! Thumbs Up Edge of Sanity and Pain of Salvation are other favorites.

...and please, let's be nice to each other. No reason to get upset by what bands are and aren't included on someone else's list.

Easy, easy, I'm pretty sure Wily wasn't entirely serious. He was just, well, sardonic. He's sardonic, that is all...
