Opeth's Martin Mendez

Bone-crushing unison guitar riffs...relentless double-bass-drum hits...ear-piercing screams...tasteful, understated fingerstyle bass lines. If you think one of these elements doesn’t quite belong, you haven’t been paying attention to Opeth. The Swedish metal band has made a name for itself by juxtaposing brutal metal aggression with beautiful harmonies and multi-layered clean passages, combining styles as diverse as death metal, progressive rock, jazz, and world music.
