that's maybe my favorite NMA album - and kicks off with one of the best album openers, 'get me out' (imo).

opeth: damnation



just saw them live yesterday night - an excellent gig. :rocker originally they were supposed to play here last december but cancelled on the day of the concert.  :? anyway, all through last fall's tour people used to complain about their short sets, sometimes just about 50 minutes long (pretty silly for a band that has mostly has some 10-15 minute songs anyway). now they played for about two hours straight, so i can't complain about the cancellation anymore.
by the way, tremendous live version of 'closure'. :P

Me too, japanesebaby - I love Kate Bush, but much prefer her Hounds of Love album.  :smth020

Yes I agree to that. It´s a really strong kick off of that album. My favorite though, on Impurity is "Eleven Years". The lyrics really speaks to me from that song. I can see myself walking the streets of Norrköping (my hometown for a couple years) and having some similar thoughts.

I actually partied with the band after a concert here in Uppsala (my current hometown) during the late 80´s. They were nice and their regular fans was really something extra.

that sounds like fun! i've seen them live only in the 2000's but all of those times were really good and memorable shows.

that's a good one, i agree. 
"Still high on the wire above the hollow darkness
Trying not to look down"

for me, 'purity' is another track that remains a special one for me. i'm not a sentimental kind of person and i dislike artists that are trying to preach something but this one makes it home for me, so to speak.
i'll always remember the performance in i saw here in 2007, after the school shooting incident (http://curefans.com/index.php/topic,4263.msg56433.html#msg56433).
before they played the song, sullivan said:
"...everybody read what this guy (=the shooter) wrote on the internet and it was the same f*cking rubbish about you know purity, arian brotherhoods... ehhm, that kind of stuff... (and) it's all one big f*cking lie. we've written lots of songs about you know politics and the world and stuff, the most true of all is this one."



...I will always see Brendan at that broken down piano
His fingers thick and red, shaking on the keys
Battered by the years of alcohol and working
Still playing with the faith that never leaves
So sit us down, buy us a drink, tell us a good story
Sing us a song we know to be true
I don't give a damn that I never will be worthy
Fear is the only enemy that I still know

Revolution for ever, succession of the seasons
Within the blood of Nature, all raised to rot and die
This purity is a lie

Ay, in the very temple of Delight
Veil'd Melancholy has her sovran shrine
