I came across a band called "Therion" who's recent output is quite operatic classically orientated symphonic metal. However their back catalogue - first, second and third albums are full on dark swedish death metal. Now that's a very big change for the same group. What other artists are out there that have changed their sound in a similarly big way?

Green Carnation - Death metal to more atmospheric metal
Katatonia - Death metal to more of a morbid doom sound in many respects
Paradise Lost - Started off more as a death metal band, before changing to a gothic sound
Anathema - Started life as a death metal band, before totally revamping themselves into an alternative rock band

Black Stone Cherry - for two albums the great hope of southern rock/metal but their latest is just a retread of Nickelback. How the mighty ........

Tiamat have had a similar sound shift; full on death metal at the start of their career through to more progressive death then full on Sisters of Mercy Goth on latter releases. It's all good tho.

Fleetwood Mac - from second-rate English blues-rock to bland American AOR (albeit with a radically different line-up).

Genesis - from prog supremos to artistically pointless techno-pop outfit (albeit with a radically reduced line-up).

Status Quo - from psych-pop group to denim-clad boogie rockers.

Pink Floyd - from psych-rock pioneers to unlistenable arty-farty prog-lite behemoths.

Goo Goo Dolls - from awful, power chord-heavy screaming cover versions of 'Don't Fear the Reaper' and 'Sunshine of Your Love' to 'Iris' in 9 years

a tad unfair, early Mac produced some classic blues songs and i think much of the new Mac sound is "poppy" rather than bland
