 Opeth, Von Hertzen Brothers


My first close encounter with Opeth, saw them from a distance at Wacken one year, and to summarize my experience on a cold Monday evening in November: a-fucking-mazing!

Nothing could go wrong this evening; the venue was sold out, the crowd was enthusiastic and energetic from start to finish, Opeth played a mixed show delivering the goods and Mikael Åkerfeldt was in great shape and in a good mood.

No one could complaint about the set-list; one highlight followed another, the played one song off their seven latest albums (two from "Heritage" and "Ghost Reveries"), so there were something for everyone...

I have seldom seen a band deliver such a strong performance on stage with such ease; it seemed so effortless, even though the technical level is as we all know extremely high.

We had a blast, and I am sure my friend had a marvellous birthday watching Opeth kick some serious ass on stage...

(Ohh yeah, we missed Von Hertzen Brothers completely, but from what we heard; they would have been a better support band on the "Heritage" tour, than on this tour).
