8-Bit Metal Mondays: Giving Thanks For Opeth

It's been three days since I saw Opeth and I still feel like I missed something from the show. While talking amongst my friends it seems like I should have enjoyed it a lot more than I did. I can never really come up with a negative thing about the show, other than there were a few songs I would have rather heard than what was played. But the same could be said for any concert. So am I becoming on of "those people" that only like a band for a few of their songs and could care less about the rest of their catalog? I sure hope not.

Truth is, it's been a while now since I've listened to an Opeth album from start to finish (other than the new one which I've listened to twice now). Going back, I need to remember that Opeth has been known for mixing up their brutal music with melodic pieces and it's been happening more and more often since 2001's Blackwater Park. That's 10 years of melodic and brutal Opeth that I've loved every minute of. So why am I so surprised by Heritage and the acoustic set in their latest show? By all means I shouldn't be. Yet here I sit, still on the fence about Opeth's current musical direction. I don't know what it's going to take to win me over again, which is just rediculous with what I have planned for the 8-bit song this week. Here's what Opeth's Harvest would sound like if it was on your favourite 8-bit console:

Please help me.
