Opeth live at Ruisrock 2008 (jsantala)
You thought Metal Masters was good? What about Neurosis / Mastodon / A Storm Of Light? Chew on this… The interwebs are going apey (guilty as charged) with the rumors of an Opeth / High On Fire / Baroness / Nachtmystium tour and now Blabbermouth has released a set of UNCONFIRMED tour dates, which we have now mostly confirmed. See below.
Patience, NYCers. I am sure NYC will be included, or at least that’s what Akerfeldt said in May.
On a Cryptopsy-adding-a-keyboard-player note (aka please don’t let it be true), rumors of a Opeth & Dream Theater collaboration are heating up in the wake of their participation in Progressive Nation tour. A partnership was actually discussed more than TWO YEARS AGO and confirmed by the band on May 11, 2006. Not sure if this is the same thing, but look for something to be announced and released soon. Tour dates below….
