Opeth -- Kansas City, MO -- October 6th, 2011
 
I couldn't ask for a better performance for my first Opeth show. Going into it, I had probably heard more of Katatonia than Opeth, but I was completely floored by them. Exceptionally heavy and just overall great performances from everyone.

As soon as Opeth started The Devil's Orchard, the crowd went nuts. They actually were singing along to most every song and headbanging, moshing, crowd surfing throughout the whole show. Yeah, there was one douchebag screaming for Blackwater Park in the back of the venue, but everyone else seemed really appreciative of Opeth doing something different. The only remotely negative thing I could say is that while I definitely enjoyed their acoustic songs, it really kinda threw off the tempo of the show. Luckily, Mikael is a great frontman and engaged the crowd and even led us through a rendition of the chorus to Harvest that it all was definitely worth it in the end. Highlights were the chillingly amazing "Face of Melinda", the Rainbow-ripoff (Mikael's words) "Slither" and "Hex Omega". Definitely never missing a local Opeth show from now on. No harsh vocals = the best kind of Opeth show.

Katatonia opened the show and was warmly received. Great "doom rock" that was really quite heavy at times. "July" was probably the heaviest song from them that evening. I'm definitely going to look into them further now!

Beaumont Club was packed. I dunno if it was sold out, but there were more people there for this show than I've seen at most shows. Definitely made me feel good to see a really happy and respectful crowd, yet still huge metal fans!

My band man. I never got to let you know that I wasn't gonna be able to make this one. Been sick as fuck all week. Bummed I didn't get to go but glad you had a good first Opeth experience. Surprised it was as packed as it was. Maybe bc of the no growling if people caught on to that and made them wanna go. Who knows. It definitely wasn't all that packed a few years back when they were @ Beaumont last.

Opeth with no harsh vocals is definitely not the best kind of Opeth show lol. That said, the set is strong enough that I know the show will be great.

Definitely check out Katatonia. Amazingly consistent band.

Huuuurrr "heavy" = quality, right?

Look, Opeth is Opeth. If you don't like it, that's cool. Go look at your favorite "heavy" band and you'll see how many lineup changes there have been. That means nothing. Opeth play progressive death metal. Notice the first word: progressive.
