Opeth, 23rd April 2008 – Carling Academy Birmingham

This was the third time I saw them and they had just been joined by Fredrik Akesson from Arch Enemy. In fact, Arch Enemy opened for them so presumably there was some sort of deal going on. Cant recall much about them though.

Opeth were good – though not as much so as the previous two occasions as the set list failed to contain anything spectacular. We were waiting for the new album with eager anticipation. 

I recall a rare version of “Wreath” and also “Serenity Painted Death from Still Life. Opening with "Demon of the Fall" was interesting as that’s usually a set closer...
