You know how when you're a young kid and your dad is like superman, but then as you both get older, you start to notice that he's not as strong or perfect as he once was? That's kind of how I feel after watching that.

i had to turn it off, that pseudo death cartoon gargling on blackwater park was too much...blech

I'm honestly surprised that the "perfectionist" would actually go for that sh!t vocal live...pretty embarrassing really

might as well not even play it no

Now I will go clean my ears with the roundhouse tapes :)

I Love Opeth -
They seem disinterested here - When you front a band and perform, If this is your choice and you care about the energy you share with the crowd, You may consider training yourself to be a very positive person.
If you let negative feelings reside in you whilst performing - You affect all who watch.
If you don't feel that you can do this, maybe you could consider taking some time out to think about what it is that makes you feel the very best.
If it is not performing, then spare millions of people the reflection of discontent and pomposity.
Find peace within yourself.

Yep, gotta agree with the general sentiment here. I think bands often forget that they are essentially marketing a product. You can't just go and drastically change the product and call it the same thing. If the passion isn't in the death metal anymore then simply stop labeling it as "Opeth" and the problem is solved. Unfortunately, the "pomposity" has been pretty much solidified now that "Cusp of Eternity" has been released.

If Palmolive suddenly decided that they wanted to pretty much alter their product into what constitutes as a drain cleaner, I think people would probably have a problem with being misled into believing that the product should be used to clean their hands. I'm not sure that the current state of what we call "Opeth" is really all that much different.

Personally, I think it's just a cry for attention to music that would otherwise be dismissed by 90% of the masses but we should all pay attention because, hey, Opeth is releasing a new album!

Gah.

I could tell Renkse-itis was setting in on "Watershed" but good lord.

I actually feel sorry for Ackerfeldt, he has to know how bad he sounds. The performances overall though were pretty standard for Opeth, just the death vocals sound painful... like they're hurting him. I hate to say this but Ackerfeldt should just be guitarist/clean vocalist for the death metal songs and find a scrappy, young, touring death vocalist who can go clean for harmonies as a bonus.

God knows everyone would have more fun that way, even Ackerfeldt. Just let Mikael own the clean parts, he's definitely broadened his abilities in that arena. Wow, all of that makes me sound like a bastard...

On a more studio note, I really hope "Pale Communion" is better than "Heritage".
