And i bet you got excited.
The hypocrisy of this is unbelieveable. I'm not crying I said they suck. I wasnt in the front, I was in the back cringing during DT. I was quite near the front during Opeth to whom I am a "real fan". Jesus, you people act like I fucked your grandmother in front of you. Yet, I'm the one that needs to get a life... haha..
Are you 16?
"fuck forever off"? Didnt you just say that Mikael said that at last night's show? And you're quoting him?
I also didnt go to the show for DT. I had hoped I would like them.
The Ego Drama unfolds...
Well, next time get the marmalade out of your ears, and you might just like them.
Next time I'll actually be sure to either bring a cyanide capsule or an entire jar of marmalade. Maybe Phosgene for the band.
this is boring...
*after a shock* I have only three words for you:YOU SUCK BAAAADLY
Couldnt have put it better myself. I basically grew up on Orchid and Morningrise. I love My Arms... and I think Still Life and BWP are also very decent. But the new stuff (except Damnation - I love it, but thats an exceptional album, not really Opethish, if you know what I mean) is odd. Could be great for a new fan, but Ive heard all those riffs before.
As for Zeta7, from what you have written, you clearly dont know much about Dark Tranquillity. As with Opeth, I grew up also on Skydancer, Of Chaos... and The Gallery. I somehow understand your dissapointment with the material from Damage Done and Character (which formed the biggest part of the set) - I dont like these 2 albums much myself - but your way of expressing your opinion is totally disgusting. That made you look like a stupid cunt, not your opinions (which arent sound, provided you really dont know much about the band), or rather feelings. Get their older stuff (mentioned above) plus The Minds I, Projector and Haven, come to DT board and youll find the beauty in gayness, I asure you!
How very n00by of you.
You may find this hard to believe, but there actually is more to metal than headbanging, for examples look at band like Burzum, Portal, Velvet Cacoon, etc etc.
All amazing bands, no headbanging to be found, whereas there is plenty of completely shit bands out there that spend the whole set headbanging.
Generally I find the music should have more of a bearing on respect levels than their ability to throw around their lovely long locks.
Hey, I'm a "new " fan, and I have all the cd's. What I like the most about Opeth, is definetly the way they blend the heavy with the softer parts, especially on the earlier albums. What I'm not interested in is just "headbanging" chords, over and over and over. Opeth have not done that, yet, while what I see from other "heavy ' bands seems boring. I am more of a Prog fan, Yes, Crimson, ELP, Spocks beard, etc. Gentle Giant is My fave. I'm going to see Opeth next Thursday for the first time, and I can't wait.
Neo nazi mosh pit huh? Funny, I was standing next to the pit the entire show and never once thought it was full of neo-nazis. Nor did I see any jock pricks - it was a typical Opeth mosh pit with fans happy to be there and helping each other when they fell. Not everyone can be a flowing haired metal god. For a metal fan you sure are pretty closed minded. Next time I go to a show in Towson, I'll wear corpse paint so you can be pissed about that too. Bet you're gay.
I think it's kind of strange that people say Opeth's earlier material flows better. I like Orchid and Morningrise a lot, but most of the transitions are pretty weak, and WAY more disjointed than anything they do now.
Plus those 'Jock guys' have been doing it for years. Its normal for anyone to mosh at a show. Just shows they are enjoying it. The guy you quoted is doofus.
I'm wondering why there is even a pit at an opeth show..??
I agree that the way I presented it was rediculous. Watching the band was embarassing as a musician though. It was just sillyness. So, I guess I went a bit overboard. I saw Mr. Bungle live years back, and they were weird on stage. IT FIT THE MUSIC THOUGH. And for fuck's sake... the headbanging comment was tongue in cheek. So, all in all... like I've said earlier in this thread, I'd rather not create ill feelings with others. I seem to forget that fanbases usually take insults of bands personally. Let's all remember why we're here, though. We're here for Opeth, not DTB or DT or anyone else.
Didnt I say earlier the "neo-nazi" thing was a joke. My point was it was a bunch of dudes with mohawks and/or shaved heads. I gotta give props to the chick that went into the pit and knocked down a guy bigger than me, and I'm a big dude.
Personally, I think moshing is retarded at a show like that. I was there for the music and to enjoy it, not to worry about half the crowd falling back on me.
TTIWGUITAR... I totally agree.
And by the way, I don't plan to go to that venue again. That venue was shit. I'd rather save myself the 2 hour drive and find something in DC or Northern VA.
What was the second to last song they played? I didn't recognize it
Ahh, the infamous Opeth fanboys.
I'm pretty sure it was My Negation. I remember this because I was praying that that one was the last song they played. =P
I think second to last was My Negation, the last track on Character.
edit: Oops, yeah, what he said.
