You like Opeth ? Then buy this. It’s that simple. My appreciation for this genuinly incredible and unique band has increased considerably after the purchase of this DVD.
Be warned though, this DVD has a heavy emphasis on their softer, clean vocal side. Damnation is played in its entirety and these tracks along with a soft song from ‘Blackwater Park’, ‘Harvest’, take up nine of the DVD’s fourteen tracks. The highlight for me of these ‘soft’ songs, and probably the whole set, has to be an utterly sublime ‘Hope Leaves’ from Damnation. The very definition of beautiful imho.
Then things get brutal… As soon as the band re-emerges and kick into an awesome version of ‘Master’s Apprentices’ you know that the ‘real’ Opeth has finally arrived. Martin Lopez’s (who deserves a special mention for his insane abilities) drum kit has doubled in size and the songs which follow, ‘The Drapery Falls’, ‘Deliverence’, ‘The Leper Affinity’ and ‘A Fair Judgement’ (all from Blackwater Park and Deliverence) quite simply rock. Hard. Very hard. The skill and talent which all of the members possess is incredible to watch.
Unfortunately there’s a slight problem. Many would argue that a lot of Opeth’s greatest work can be found in their earlier ‘Orchid’, ‘Morningrise’, ‘My Arms, Your Hearse’ and ‘Still Life’ albums but there are no tracks from these albums to be found. The reason? Record company politics.

First off. I cannot understand how any Opeth fan can give this DVD anything other than a massive 5 stars (note previous reviews??)

I had the great fortune of experiencing Opeth in Leeds on the Reveries tour 2005. I have seen many concerts performed in a variety of places such as theatre basements to Donington 1988, just about every metal band that has played in the UK over the past 25 years! I thought I had seen it all - then Opeth came in to my life.

Opeth's style of music is original, awe inspriring, haunting and just down right perfection. They were all this and much, much more live. So when I got my hands on this DVD, needless to say I had extremely high expectations, and it didn't dissapoint.

In fact, the DVD took me back to the gig. Expertly shot from many angles, taking in each band member illustrating how to play instruments the way they were meant to be played. The expressions of concentration and enjoyment of the Damnation set, to the sheer power and all out attack on your senses of the second heavier set, is etched on each face. Total experience.

Then, as you are failing to control your emotions from the live set, you are treated to a documentary that shows a surprising side to the group and an insight into how they produce this exhilerating music, something to behold!

Finaly, the DVD is in DTS, 5:1 or stereo formats. I watched in DTS - AMAZING!

If you have good taste in music and are an Opeth fan on any level, you must but this DVD now and -

Witness the phenomena that is OPETH.

While many bands these days claim to be 'all about the music' it is quite rare for the statement to actually ring true. This DVD shows opeth to be a magnificent live act, quite similar to Tool in the aspect that their are no explosions and no smoke, just beautiful music.
The first hour is based around the accoustic 'Damnation' album, which is as close to beautiful as modern rock can get. Highlights include the opening track 'windowpane', 'in my time of need' and 'death whispered a lullaby'. A nice surprise for old school fans is a rendition of 'harvest' from the blackwater park album, which is probably the overall highlight of the first hour.
The second hour shows opeth's ability to mix their beautifully frail melody with visciously heavy aggression. Perfect renditions of 'deliverance', 'the leper affinity' and 'master's apprentice' show how brutal opeth can be at their best, and, as ever, 'the drapery falls' has 'greatest song ever' written all over it.
This was an outstanding show from a magnificent band, and any fan of progressive music or death metal should but it...now.

Format: DVD
On September 25th i had the good fortune to be able to see Opeth live for the first time. After a surprisingly long journey taking several trains i finally arrived at the venue, waiting in anticipation. Arriving 15 minutes late Opeth arrived onto the stage as the far from patient crowd roared 'Opeth!'. The first set was incredible, Opeth had hired a pianist/backing vocalist to play all the piano parts for the Damnation songs and he was warmly welcomed by the crowd just as one of the Opeth members. They opened with the first track on the Damnation album 'Windowpane' Which triggered a crowd pleasing reaction. Next up was a very modest song 'In my time of need' which is my second favourite song on the first set. The band were musically perfect and managed to spice up the chorus by creating a superb 'building up' prechorus. The next few songs were all from the Damnation album. I enjoyed the album very much but i wanted to hear some older more chilled out Opeth songs too. Finally after the instrumental 'Ending Credits' the band played my favourite mellow Opeth track 'Harvest' The song was spot on and sounded fantastic with Mikael and the Pianist singing in unison. The first set finished with 'Weakness' as the band left for a twenty minute break. Twenty minutes later the quintet arrived and wasted no time breaking into their first song of the second set...'Masters Apprentices' The fans were very pleased by this and the room turned into a mosh pit. Next up was 'The Drapery Falls' 'Deliverance' 'The Leper Affinity' all three songs were played perfectly and sounded even better live than on studio recordings. 'A Fair Judgement' was last up. And once that had finished the crowd wanted more...The band arrived back on to play an oldie 'Demon of the Fall' which unfortunatly will not be on the dvd. I'm not going to hesitate to buy this DVD and neither should you. This was the best concert i have ever been to and i hope that you will enjoy watching as much as i did.
