    ^Fair enough...cough Opeth cough. Hey post its post 666, IM KVLT METUUL REBALZ. I want to go to the Melbourne Meshuggah gig, but if I do I'll have to go on my own as none of my mates are into them. I don't really go to a gig unless I'm with at least one other person who is into them. Most of my friends share my musical tastes, but Meshuggah unfortunately isn't one of them.

    ^I wasn't aware you were haha. You'd think with all the music we discuss Meshuggah would come up, but I don't think I've spoken to you about them. Been a fan for a fair while now, actually now I think about it, it would be before I met you, so thats like at least 4-5 years ago. Obzen is fantastic, grew on me a lot. Not their best but very good non the less. Well, lets go to the concert then.

    I wish I had the funds to be able to fly to the different aussie gigs. that would be brutal.

    Opeth need to do an instore in Sydney. That would make my year!

    What are you guys interested in hearing? I know it will probably reflect their latest setlists so I'll keep that in mind.
    At the Sydney gig I am hoping for..

    Serenity Painted Death
    Wreath (I've become drawn to it of late)
    Heir Apparent
    When or April Ethereal
    Advent
    The Leper Affinity
    Blackwater Park
    As much off Still Life as possible and an Orchid song would be killer

    Songs I don't want to hear..
    The Drapery Falls
    The Grand Conjuration
    Masters Apprentices

    I like to dream eh

    hmm interesting set list. i'd personally love Ghost of perdition. I know they probably played it to death on the last tour, but i didn't get to see them, and its the song that got me into them.

    i'd like to hear drapery as well, and maybe one or two more new songs. also DEMON

    LOL that would be hilarious!

    *cough cough" excuse me JB Hi-Fi fans, I'm sorry to interrupt your shopping today, but we have a swedish death metal band in the store who want to play you a tune or two......

    deliverance followed by demon would be appropriate i believe...

    Yeah more Orchid please, Under the weeping moon dominated. Plus its time to crack When on the Melbourne audience. I've heard april, demon heaps and credence, When, Amen or Karma please. Haven't heard enough mayh. In terms of Still Life, Face of Melinda and White Cluster are the only tracks bar benighted left for me to hear and they will rape to all kinds or proportions live.

    I'm getting an afternoon flight on the Saturday and a 6am flight on the Sunday morning, so no sleep for me. Buy the tickets online and get them mailed to you, postage isn't too bad, I forget home much it cost for the Sydney tickets to be posted, but it wasn't much.
