Opeth (Live – 2)

16th October 2014

This week, I have mainly been having my mind blown (again) courtesy of Swedish medieval-jazzy-folk-prog-metallers Opeth. We made the journey down to Nottingham’s historic Rock City venue where we had opted to do a meet’n’greet with the band. Which was fun. And the show that followed was a rapturous two hour extravaganza that zig-zagged through almost every record from their back catalogue (please see photo of my beautifully signed and framed setlist) in what can only be described as a mind bending show of extreme talent.

Fast forward to Tuesday night and we did it all again in Glasgow (minus the meet’n’greet – we didn’t want to look like stalkers). Only this time the gig (and the crowd) was even better. Which I didn’t think was possible. I left on a high before realising that it would be a while before they return on the second leg of this tour. Roll on next year…

You can read my original post about them here and my first live review here.

And if you would like a taste of what all the fuss is about, you can try this short and sweet festival set from Rock Am Ring earlier this year here.

WARNING: This is best played loud but you may want to remove any children/pets from the immediate area first…
