This is an observation I have had and I want to know if anyone else has noticed this too. I've been to three Opeth concerts over the past 4 years and everytime I see them at the marquee theater in Tempe, AZ the live sound mix is terrible. Now the band is tight (from what I can hear), good energy but the kick drums and the bass guitar overpower pretty much everything. It's like you have to strain your ears and use your eyes to hear what the guitar and vocals are doing. I always wear high quality ear plugs so the dB volume is attenuated, not the frequencies. Anyone know if they have a live sound engineer on the road with them or do they just use the house engineer for each venue? I love seeing Opeth I just wish I could hear a clean, loud mix where everything is audible. It kind of ruins the experience when the sound sucks. I have seen plenty of other bands at this venue and the mix has sounded amazing, so it's not the venue. If they don't have a live sound engineer on the road, maybe its time Road Runner invested some money into that.
