Yeah, I haven't. I've been patiently waiting for my opportunity to see them for over 4 years now, since they became my favorite band. It's just... I don't want to have to wait another couple years to hear my favorites live, you know? I really have no excuse to complain, but you have to understand why I'm a little bit disappointed.

I'm pretty sure they always will be a thing. Like Pink Floyd kiddies nowadays. New people will discover this band every year, for generations I'd wager.

Okay, you saying that seals the deal that I'm going to Opeth. I know its not right to skip them for ATB, and if I did do that, I'd probably look back a year later when I've seen After the Burial and Veil of Maya 3 more times each and regret not seeing Opeth when I had the chance. And I love Heritage; hearing that material live will be awesome.

That being said... part of me is very, very scared I'll never get the opportunity to see Opeth do growls ever again. The way Mikael is talking... and the way his voice sounds on recent live footage... I wouldn't be surprised if he shied away from Death Metal for good. That would suck.
