Best Opener I've Seen
As stated a few pages back; Virgin Black Lacrimosa (Gather Me)/Domine.
Best Closer I've Seen
That's the toughest one for me to answer. I'm usually tired by the end of most shows from standing for so long (I'm old, fuck you) and honestly I'm ready for most concerts to be done. But Entombed doing Left Hand Path was very cool. So until I remember something else that's my answer.
Best Concert Opener I Want To See
I'd love to see Pig Destroyer open with Pissangel. I know they play that song live still but I don't think as an opener. And I think three guys walking on stage , not saying a word and bursting into that song would be so awesome.
Best Closer I Want To See
Sigur Ros Untitled 8. I know they play that song live too but I'm not sure if it's still their closer. I'm seeing them in March so we'll see. I think it's one of the best closing tracks on an album I've ever heard and I've heard Sigur Ros are incredible live, so I think it would be awesome.
