Should be awesome.. As long as Mikael doesn't babble on about rubbish as much as he did last time, haha.

I wonder if The Eternal will get the support again this time.

Hell yeah! I think I might be getting a barrier spot for VB, I don't want to see them from half the room away. I'll probably move after that though, if the last Opeth show was any indication of what this one will be like. Those people against the barrier for Opeth are going to be in so much pain.

I'm hoping to plonk myself on the barrier inside the bar area. It has this little platform, about 2inches high and you can see over the dudes in front, great view of the stage....don't take my spot

Dance, bitch!
They played an excellent show last night. I reckon they were better then when I saw them in 2006(oh, Matt, your mate still owes me money by the way!). Virgin Black were fucking ace, only stain on the night were the fuckwits at the front mocking Virgin Black and shouting "Opeth!" all night. Oh, and Mikael tested us on our rock history!

I was at the front for Virgin Black and man, Rowan sounds even better live than what he does on CD. He can do it all, he's like the super-human metal frontman. He blew me away, to say the least. I loved that they also included "Sombre Romantic" songs into their (very short) set.
The under 18s at the front were laughing to themselves about Samantha headbanging while she wasn't playing and were cheering when they finally exited the stage. However they were the first ones to go wild when Rowan was doing the high pitched growling. Those kids have no idea, and seeing as most of them were built like twigs they most probably got squashed as soon as Opeth started, haha.

Opeth were great. I decided that I didn't want to come out with a bruised body and a fist to the face, so we went to the bar upstairs and watched from there. The sea of heads was crazy! I don't think a single person could have moved very far in that room. Saying it was packed would have been an understatement!

Man i agree with you on Virgin Black. They blew us away too and yes he definitely sounds better live. i cant believe how good they were live. Rowan would have to be one of the best vocalist ever! He can do everything which is amazing. Definitely will be seeing them live again

He is unmatched in my books, he's incredible. When I got home I tried to explain to my Dad that he can growl, scream(sort of, like high growling) and sing, and he was like, "that's a bit contradictory." So I'm going to have to show him a couple of songs to prove it, haha.
So happy that they played "Domine" though!! Best song from Requiem - Mezzo Forte and they played "Walk Without Limbs"! Also one of my favourites from Sombre Romantic.

Hmmm, I think I was far more excited to see Virgin Black than Opeth. Lol.
