Led by the uncommonly thoughtful crooner-slash-growler Mikael Akerfeldt, these well-regarded Swedish metallers routinely spike their blast-beat tantrums with gentle jazz-folk interludes. (The band's most recent disc, 2008's Watershed, kind of sounds like Pat Metheny sitting in with Slayer.) Tonight, they'll play 2001's Blackwater Park in its entirety, then do a second set of "hits" and rarities.
