Man, that really makes me reminiscent.  First, just extra footage from that making of I watched a number of times back then.  And then secondly, when Damnation came out one of my first memories of it was putting "Hope Leaves" on after finishing a final exam, walking out of the building into a light rain, and eating a Reese's fast break bar.  A memory probably permanently seared into my mind.

My favorite lineup of the band. Lopez is just one of the smoothest drummers I have ever seen. He makes it look so effortless. I so enjoy just watching him play.
beul ni teh efac = Lube In The Face / That has to be wrong.  :lol / EDIT: Oh, it's Blue! I'm an idiot.
Pardon the interruption, but I just had to run in and celebrate the majesty of Lube in the Face as highest moment in roulette history

Agreed - it's one of the reasons the performance on the Lamentations DVD is so good.

IMO he's the perfect drummer for the post-2010 retro-prog era of Opeth too. Just has the right flavour.

Lopez is fantastic. He managed to always create unique and memorable parts. His performance on Ghost Reveries is among my all time favorites.

I was wondering when the time for a new Opeth album would come. Cauda came out almost 4 1/2 years ago.

BTW I love how Anderson talks about Opeth like they’re a newcomer in the prog scene  :lol “they’re Swedish”, hilarious.

You'd be surprised to know how many professional musicians actually have no interest in the general music landscape. A surprisingly small number of them are actually up to date on what's goes on in the industry. I.e. MP is an outlier when it comes to being that dialled in.

I would agree with this - with Pale Communion a close second.

Eternal Rains Will Come is still one of my favourite album openers. Amazing track.

And I don't know much about Ian's tastes, but if he was the type who didn't like harsh vocals, Opeth wouldn't even have been something to interest him at all until a bit over a decade ago.
