Opeth: Lamentations – Live At Shepherd’s Bush Empire 2003 album review
Career-defining two-show set reissued on CD and triple-vinyl.
Anyone requiring a snapshot of how Scandinavian progressive doom metallers Opeth broadened their horizons during the pivotal early 2000s phase of their career should have a look at the classic live DVD of their two show set in London in 2003. Oh, you’re an Opeth fan and you already have? Well, erm, maybe you could buy the CD version, just for the music. Hang on, you have that as well?
Maybe you mean the 2006 US release of this show in a CD box set, or the 2CDs that were included in a 2012 box set with another reissue of said DVD? Confused? So are we. But now, the sounds come boxed on triple heavyweight vinyl.
A turning point for the band – any reason to revisit is welcome.
