7. Opeth “Benighted”
The progressive death metal band get folky (as they are known to do), introducing an acoustic guitar and a soft, layered vocals. The band would veer further from their original death metal sound on subsequent releases.
8. Tool “Maynard’s Dick”
This song isn’t quite as soft as some of the others on the list, but the only remaining trace of Tool’s biting aesthetic is in the title.
