Opeth - Damnation Tour (Old Dead Tree)
This venue and the one in London were the only ones that were seated. The entire 013 was filled with chairs for Opeth. The Old Dead Tree were all right, only they were completely blown away by the performance of Mikael Akerfeldt and friends. But contrary to Opeth, they did play some rougher distortion songs. Opeth played the entire Damnation album in the order of the album which was very amazing and relaxing. For the keyboard parts they had loaned the keyboard player from Spiritual Beggers, Mikael informed us, who would also do backup vocals. The order of the songs was opening with Windowpane, then In My Time Of Need, Death Whispered A Lullaby, Closure, Hope Leaves, To Rid The Disease, Ending Credits and Weakness. Between the songs Mikael kept reminding us that they were actually a death metal band and that we probably wouldnít like their next album because it was going to be heavier (little blast beat on the drums) than we would be able to handle. Yeah right. The last song Weakness was intensely beautiful, because only the keyboard guy and Mikael were on stage in the spotlights. After playing the entire Damnation album they continued their peaceful performance by playing Benighted and Face Of Melinda of their Still Life album, To Bid You Farewell of the Morningrise album and a cover of Deep Purpleís Soldier Of Fortune. After those songs the five-some left the stage, only to be called back to play Harvest of the Blackwater Park album. At this point the crowd couldnít contain their enthusiasm anymore and a whole bunch of people ran down pushing away the chairs to stand in front of the stage and sing with the song, as Opeth had asked. A beautiful, once in a lifetime, experience which I was fortunate enough to witness. Review by: DemonDust
