Opeth at Kings Theatre

Why see Opeth?

Metal icons and genre leaders for over 25 years!

The Swedish heavy metal gods return to North America for a special series of concerts. Led by Mikael Akerfeld, Opeth have forged a reputation as one of the genre's most experimental forces, following in the footsteps of their progressive rock idols by incorporating jazz, classical, folk and blues influences into their sprawling - and often hauntingly melodic - tracks.

Active since 1989, the band has undergone several iterations of members with only one of the original band members still in the band today! That would be lead vocalist and guitarist Mikael Akerfeldt, whose iconic vocal diversity helps Opeth's music bounce from one genre to the next all within one song or, somethings, just one chorus. If technical guitar and intricate riffs are your kinda thing, Opeth is one band you won't want to miss experiencing live!

Amazing Sights and Sound

This is one of the best concerts I've ever attended. Now mind you, I am not a huge fan of death metal and cookie monster singing, but Opeth is a fantastic band full of superb musicians. I've seen the masters of Prog Rock over the years. Acts like King Crimson, Yes, Tull, and more. All very fine live performances. Opeth is as skilled a band as any I've ever seen, and their light and projection shows were stunning. The energy at Ryman was contagious, and the interaction between the fans and the band was warm. The only negative I might share was this. The Ryman is a jewel of American history in its place as the showcase of Country Music. I am not a country music fan by any standard, but I thought that Mikael Ã…kerfeldt was a bit disrespectful in his comments about the genre and specifically Hank Williams, but by Michaels own admission - he can sometimes be too opinionated. Nonetheless, it was a brilliant show. ... Read more

Opeth at the Ryman

Not sure if it was all the wood (interior walls and pews) but the sound was the best I've heard at a concert in a long time... The fact that the band is made up of top-notch musicians playing as tight as hell I'm sure contributed to the great sound... As for Mikael's comments, the Hank Williams thing was tongue in cheek, he even said he was joking and later in the show he said playing at the Ryman is something he will remember the rest of his life... He collects classic vinyl from all genres of music and I'm sure he has a healthy respect for the artists that made the Ryman the classic venue that it is today... ... Read more
