    Will do, but I aint gonna start writing a list of the songs they play.
    Also, the gig will apparently be 3 and a half hours long.

    Alright, middle break started and the show has been fucking awesome so far.
    They played one song from the upcoming album, 'born to believe' and they will play a second one later.

    So if I were going to get an Opeth album which one (other than Damnation) has the least emphasis on death growls?

    Death metal instrumentals are fine.

    Ghost Reveries probably, I don't really know, tough one to answer since it's pretty central to their sound

    Alright, just ended. It was amazing. They had MONKEYS PLAYING TOM SAWYER.
    Also, YYZ was amazing and the raggae intro for the Working Man.
    The best gig I have ever been to.

    And yes, absinthe, I did flinch at the pyro.

    It's not as good as Crimson at their best, but it's not as bad as Crimson at their worst. :) I don't think it's really that comparable, to be honest; it quite surprised me how non-proggy the album was, although you can certainly hear a lot of elements of early King Crimson if you pay attention

    Well that depends. Which album is King Crimson at their worst?

    I guess Starless & Bible Black or Islands out of the ones I've heard, but I meant more generally songs like Providence or Starless & Bible Black or something

    No way was Starless a bad album :psyduck:

    Islands is okay, but I reckon King Crimson were at their worst when making "The ConstrucKtion of Light".

    Still good though.

    Hell yes! I was at the same gig . It was so amazingly perfect. I was afraid Geddys voice wouldn't really be at its best but god damn, he sang as good and clearly as ever.
    The second half with Moving Pictures was pure bliss. All in all the setlist could've been better, but damn, if they after 40 years of being active come to a hellhole like Finland, I should just keep my mouth shut.
    Also, DRUM SOLO!

    This was my first real gig I've ever been to :3:. Couldn't have hoped for a better one.

    Peart's drum solo was great. I really liked when the drumkit turned and he started using the electronic drums.
    Also, I agree that there should've been Xanadu or Cygnus X-1 instead of some more unkown songs.

    Absolutely, those are the exact two songs I would've really wanted to hear. I haven't really listened to their newer stuff, but some of it was suprisingly good. Especially the songs from their upcoming album.

    The encore was so rad, too. Villa Strangiato has one of the best solos I know of. Lifeson is such an underrated guitarist.

    And that incredibly awesome riff just before the bass solo thingy.
    And the newest from them that I've listened to is Counterparts.
    Leave That Thing Alone is awesome.

    My suggestion is that you get used to growls. Mikael's growls are a big part of the band, and it will be a shit ton more enjoyable if you get used to them, and even learn to like them

    Other than that, the only album I can think of that doesn't focus a lot on growls would be the newest one, Watershed.

    The problem is that Geddy is pretty much unable to hit those high tones now.

    Seemed to hit them well enough . Even so, he could just "remake" the vocals like he did on 2112, so they aren't as high.

    Just made a playlist out of the setlist :smug:

    it's pretty awesome to think that there's bands out there that sound exactly the same if not better than they did almost 40 years ago
