Opeth 2009_05_17 Tucson, AZ

It seems that everyone likes Opeth a lot more than I do. I feel like I’m missing something. That’s why I stayed around to catch them after Enslaved played. I’ve often found myself liking a band a lot more after seeing them live. It just “clicks” all of the sudden. I’m still waiting for Opeth to click, but I like them much more now! I have to admit I’ve only heard Orchid and Blackwater Park, and then I kind of gave up on listening to them. So I’ve missed a lot of their material (8 albums!), so it was cool to hear the great mix of songs they played live. I will definitely be picking up their new album, Watershed. I’ve really been getting into Dan Swanö‘s stuff, Moontower specifically,  so I may be ready for the band he helped from the very beginning. If you love Opeth you’ll love this recording, if you’re unsure about them you’ll at least appreciate them as musicians and laugh your ass off at some of the things Mikael says on stage!

  1. Thanks for this and your other recordings, they sound great. Unfortunately I get an error with this Opeth FLAC version.

    ! M:\Opeth_20090517FLAC.zip: CRC failed in Opeth_20090517-FLAC\10 The Night And The Silent Water.flac. The file is corrupt

    • Damn! I’ve been reading about MediaFire corrupting files randomly…I’m guessing that’s the issue. I’ll post updated files soon. Thanks for letting me know.

  2. Ok, I’ve replaced the FLAC link to a newly uploaded folder of files that you can download individually. I’m hoping this tactic will avoid the corruption problems that might be happening because of the large zip files.

  3. Thank you very much for sharing this wonderful show
    Nice nice nice nice

  4. Was very happy to find this, since I was at this show!
