These clearly belong together: "The Roundhouse Tapes" by Opeth is re-released on a 2 CD and DVD combination in a media book (including a booklet with 24 pages).

Opeth are a phenomenon. One of the very few bands that managed to successfully mix extreme metal with dark prog rock. "The Roundhouse Tapes", the first live double CD by the Swedish band based around fronter Mikael Akerfeldt, was recorded during the 'Ghost Reveries Tour 2006'. The sound is absolutely clear, the guitars thunder and you can always hear the soft keyboards. The band plays very dynamically and the atmosphere can really be felt. Mikael eases the partly playful dark material with his cool comments and shows the listeners that they are a rock band that wants to entertain. Dark treasures like "Ghost Of Perdition", the highly emotional "Bleak", "The Night And The Silent Water" and the hit "Blackwater Park" thrill the fans from the beginning. It's simply amazing what the Swedes from Opeth perform here. Perfect sounds, songs full of energy and emotion and last but not least, the cheerful front man Mikael Akerfeldt make this live recording exceptional.
