    I'm going to see them this Friday. I've never seen them live and needless to say I'm beside myself with excitement. I haven't been this psyched to see a band in a loooong time. Anyone else seen them live? On this tour perhaps?

    I've seen them, and it was awful. Terribly disappointing.

    Just kidding, KICKASS show and the singer has a great sense of humor.

    If the DVD is any indication of how good they are live, they should be awesome! I'm jealous - I have not had the opportunity to see them live yet.
  5. They are amazing!!! The songs from the new album rocks!

    All of them really...You can't go wrong with any of their albums IMO. Blackwater Park is the one that really got me hooked.

    Those clips Matt posted are sweet. I'm sure they'll be amazing.

    Best first Opeth album......My arms your hearse then blackwater park and damnation are really good. I personally don't like the new cd whatsoever. Last time i saw them live they were kind of slow moving and Mikaels voice was out, but that was because they had already played 50 shows before that on the same tour. The other time they were really really good. I was going to go see them in Israel, but the tickets got sold out.
  11. they're great, they didnt play the drapery falls though so I was sad :(
  12. Opeth nail every bit live. I've seen them both live and on the Lamentations DVD, and it's an amazing time.

    Mikey is so funny that it's like get a comedy show as a bonus. When Opeth came to Seattle in October, he commented that "you're gonna call me a pussy...but I LOVE Heart." The crowd cheered him on though, and everyone was in great spirits.
  13. sweet... theyre doing a show here in a month or two tha im going to

    I saw them opening for Porcupine Tree (co-headlining?) a couple years ago no the Damnation tour. It was all acoustic/soft songs. Absolutely INCREDIBLE show. I could hear every detail of what was going on. Only show that I've been able to do that at, really. They nailed every little detail perfectly. I NEED to see them again.

    ? for those who've seen them...How long is their set?

    Given that most of their songs are around 10+ mins do they just play like 6 songs? Or do they play for more like 2 hours?
  18. He definitely did that when I saw them.

    "Come on, guys! More Tom Warrior. UNGH!"

    Good times.
