For years upon years I’ve waited for my opportunity to experience a live Opeth concert. Whenever they would go out and tour, where ever I happened to be is the place they were not. So, when I found out that they would be performing at the now famous Alcatraz Night Club in Milan, Italy, which is a stones throw away from my humble abode, I dove at the opportunity and grabbed tickets as fast as I could. Content, you could say so. And then to sweeten the deal another band I hold in very high regards, Pain of Salvation, announced that they would be taking the support slot for the show. Needless to say, I went from content to elated. Not since when I got my hands on my first Iron Maiden concert tickets did I wait in such anticipation for a concert. Finally after months of being suspended in a bated breath November 24th rolled around and there I was, beer in hand, watching Daniel Gildenlöw of P.o.S. demonstrate his unearthly voice as him and the rest of the band poured out every ounce of their souls on the stage putting on a wonderful and high energy show.
