+ Making Of 'Deliverance' And 'Damnation'

Staff review by
This DVD was recorded during a show of the Damnation Tour in London. Two parts here: the most interesting, the reason why you already have it, is the concert. The second part is the making of Opeth's last two albums. As the important part is the show, I'll go quickly on the bonus.

The making of allows us to enter the writing and recording process of Deliverance and Damnation, and to see the studio life of this band. Every part of the recording of the albums is explained by the musicians, who also think back about the band's debuts. It is indeed really interesting to hear about the beginning of Opeth, with some anecdotes that desanctify these guys who look like unreachable geniuses... I guess a new sparkle of hope will light the ears of songwriters around the world when they will know that Akerfeldt's first metal song was called 'I hate Hiphop'. Everybody has to start somewhere... Something cool on these bonuses is the writing process with Akerfeldt and Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree: this is the living proof that two geniuses and great musicians can work together without ego problems...

Opeth are one of those bands, who evoke intense sense of aesthetic beauty and splendor inside my mind. From their bizarre album arts to their fantastic musical and lyrical portrayal of the human consciousness, everything about Opeth for me is mysterious, dark and beautiful all at the same time. A blend of incredible moments of tender beauty and overwhelming moments of ferocious brutality, taste of their unique brand of extreme metal is an awe-inspiring and psychedelic experience. The "Lamentations - live at Shepherd's Bush Empire 2003" DVD is just another testimony of Opeth being arguably the greatest metal act to come out from the Scandinavia.

Perfect! Nothing more can be said about it. A must have. Some friends of mine were at the gig. They said it was a very special night.
