    Does anyone know why the band has yet to play this track live? I personally think it is full of crushing riffs and would be a blast live. Underrated song for sure, in my opinion.

    I think Mike said somewhere that it'd be near impossible to pull off, but he'd like to try it someday.

    Somewhere on the forum, me thinks.

    And it is an awesome song.

    Definetely the most underrated/not-talked about Opeth song imo. Not sure why they don't play it. But I do have one question about the song; what is Mikael saying at the end? It sounds like its played backwards or something.

    It's been talked about here plenty of times. You just haven't been here long enough. :)

    Old question. Check the FAQ. :)

    well right now BTPISIO is listed as mikes least favorite track in the bio, so fat chance of seeing it live for a long time if its anything like TNATSW or ever for that matter since it would be so hard to pull off apparently

    Yeah, I'd love to hear that song played live. It's probably my favorite song off the Deliverence album.

    it rules, but since mikael and the band hate it, its unlikely to get played. HOWEVER who knows what will happen in a few years time? Mikael used to hate Under the Weeping Moon and now the more he plays it the more he likes it so who knows.

    and I thought UTWM is one of Mike's favourites... ?

    but BTPISIO is easily the worst song off Deliverance (not that it sucks, but all the rest is better :D ) and I wouldn't like it being played live before they start playing Wreath :lol:

    BTPISIO has been one of my favourite tracks for a while now, despite it taking me a long time to fully enjoy. The last few minutes of random rumbling then the MA verse backwards kinda spoils it I think, if it had just ended where it was it would have a better following seeing as most people argue they dont like it because of the 'stupid backwards stuff'. If they'd done that they should have opened the album with it too imo.
    I think the part at 1:20 is awesome, and the way Mike sings 'Changes' in the waltz is awesome. Overall great vocals growl & clean. (Rise to submission)

    Anyways I always say exactly the same every time this thread comes around, and I've seen it quite a few times in the 6 months i've been here so maybe the search function would have been a better idea.
