Mmmm… (a nice steaming hot cup of coffee)++.
There were two supporting bands with Opeth last night…Alchemist was on the tour with them, and there was a different local band in each city. Alchemist were pretty good, I’ll have to investigate further (hadn’t heard any of their stuff before), but the local band, Flesh Mechanic…holy shit. They /sucked/. Horribly. The guitars and drums were basically played as fast as possible, which resulted in them sounding like pure noise (no comments about any metal being pure noise here, thanks ;)) and the vocalist sucked too. Bleh. Fortunately they weren’t on for very long.
