I just got back to Ottawa from seeing the boys in Montreal. Great fucking show. I got there right when THREE hit the stage. Really cool band. The frontman has a dreamy voice and his guitar playing abilities are impeccable. I really likes his style. Opeth......well........they were flawless in every aspect. The first time I saw them was on SOTU at some Tennis Court place and they're set got cut short for whatever reason. They only played 3 songs, and there was a bunch of technical malfunctions, so it wasn't exactly an enjoyable Opeth experience. Then I saw them on Gigantour and it was better, yet still not a great experience because it was at a big arena, and they only played for about 45 minutes. Soooo......tonight(or last night seeing as though it's now 3:19am) I had the pleasure of finally seeing Opeth at a small venue performing a headlining set. It's also my favorite venue in Montreal as well. The sound was great, the performance was flawless, the set list was fantastic and the crowd once again like at every Montreal show was downright amazing. Axe is a great drummer and he's a welcomed change from Lopez. Frederik is a fabulous guitar player and fills Peter's shoes with perfection. Mikael was his usual self and brought the funny a few times. I also bought the $50 zip-up Watershed hoodie. The smallest size they had was XX-L, so I tried it on and it actually wasn't too bad, so I bought it in hopes of it shrinking to a perfect size when I put it in the dryer. Setlist was like this and in this order if I remember correctly. Demon Of The Fall Master's Apprentices The Baying Of The Hounds In My Time Of Need Serenity Painted Death To Rid The Disease Wreath Heir Apparent The Drapery Falls We got 9 songs. If my memory serves correct, I believe I read from other reviews of the headlining shows that they played 8 songs. Did we get an extra song because we were such a great crowd?? Or did the other shows get 9 songs as well??
