  1. Lamentations

    Lamentations is a DVD of Opeth's first live video, released under the Music For Nations label in 2003. It was recorded at the Shepherd's Bush Empire on 25 September 2003. Lamentations features Opeth playing the album Damnation in its entirety, followed by some of the band's songs from Blackwater Park and Deliverance. The only song that was played from albums prior to Blackwater Park was "Demon of the Fall" as an encore song, but the song was not filmed for the DVD due to licensing issues with previous record labels prevented this from happening at the time of the disc's release. The DVD also includes a documentary on the making of both Damnation and Deliverance because both albums were recorded at the same time. This was the first Opeth release with Per Wiberg, although he officially gained membership not until Ghost Reveries. A 2-disc CD version of the live recording was released in 2006 in a collector's edition slipcase.

    There sighs, lamentations and loud wailings resounded through the starless air, so that at first it made me weep; strange tongues, horrible language, words of pain, tones of anger, voices loud and hoarse, and with these the sound of hands, made a tumult which is whirling through that air forever dark, and sand eddies in a whirlwind.
