SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Heavy / RPI / Symphonic Prog Team
4 stars This new live release is the fourth for the band ad this time it was shot in a windy and cold evening at the Red Rocks Colorado. It is very cool to see the band playing in nature while you can see also in the back the city! The band played various songs from their 2 sides: the death metal vocals and the clean vocals. But this is not telling much about the quality of their music and the way they built their songs. The strength of the band has always been how they can go from a fast pace tempo with very heavy guitars to a slower pace acoustic parts in a way that only Opeth can do. So, even in their most death oriented songs, there is still room for some good old prog, you can hear some Landberk guitar influence. If the band has stopped to do death metal albums this is not because they are now playing folk music!

The picture and sound are excellent on this show and visually they give us something more enjoyable than previous DVDs with plenty of projections in the back in a giant screen. I like the editing of all the camera shots with some up and distant shots mix with the close shots. To me, it was a nice decision to keep the awkward moment where there was no sound coming from Mikael's guitar before a technician came on stage to fix everything. Sadly, I was a bit disappointed that the show length was only 90 minutes.

Review by Warthur
5 stars Garden of the Titans captures a live set from Opeth which, coming after the release of Sorceress, follows a string of albums (beginning with Heritage) where they had more or less abandoned metal entirely. The set list mixes their gentler progressive rock material with more progressive metal-oriented pieces in a setlist which seamlessly blends both sides of their sound, and so the album stands as evidence that if Opeth have stopped making metal albums, it's not because they are no longer able or willing to play metal - they're just working on a different aspect of their portfolio for the time being.

Several of the songs here are Opeth live standards - indeed, if you have The Roundhouse Tapes you have renditions of several of these from about a decade earlier - but there's enough tracks which haven't seen the light of day on an official Opeth live release to ensure it doesn't feel redundant. And if you've convinced yourself that Opeth can't do justice to their metal side any more, just listen to the furious version of Deliverance that rounds out this exceptional set.
