    I can't remember. I would guess around 5 or 6 years ago. I think it was at the New England Metal Fest with Nevermore. (I've seen them about 7 timesand met at least one of the members 5 times).

    I want them to play one of those stick-thingies that Max Cavalera playes, and I also want them to swap instruments with Finntroll (the ones they use in videos).

    What do you mean more, Opeth doesn't have any brutal riffs. Except maybe 0000000000000000000

    And more female vocals would also be nice. Something a'la Celtic Frost. It worked really well on some of their songs. Harmony vocals I mean, not lead.

    My retarded? What do you mean? Did you mean "you are" or "you’re" retarded?

    Okay so you just hate all King Crimson songs that has violin? That's still retarded.

    something completely unexpected could work, such as a hang drum, but i don't know how they'd pull it off live so i think they should just stick to what they're doing.

    Nah, Opeth are fine as they are, there's no need to bring in new instruments as Per can reproduce all kinds of sounds on his keys.

    They should go back with guitar effects ONLY like it was on Blackwater Park. Best ambiance ever. I personnally don't really see any improvment in adding a keyboard. I mean, it's great, but they could do as good or even better without it.

    Like Metallica's S&M? (going with the orchestra idea) That would be amazing. Personally, I would really like to hear The Moor in that style.

    No need for such harsh words sapob. I think KC had some really good songs with violin, but sometimes I wish they hadn't done as many as they did. With violin. I love that intro to "Exiles". And the jam "Providence" kicks ass. Not to mention Lark's Tongues in Aspic I&II.

    a beatboxer would do.

    I actually want Mikael to do some electro music ala' Kleerup. (I'm serious, I have been since I heard about the dark techno songs he made).
