Mikael from Opeth has posted his thoughts on the Melloboat on his myspace. Seems he had a great time like the rest of us ;) http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=73885097&blogID=365877457
Besides the great people doing good partying onboard there was music. Music performed very well making the whole experience unforgettable. Katatonia's performance was my favorite but that does not say anuthing bad about the other performances whilst some were far from my personal taste! I have let myself be surprised and special props go to PIU (and their guest ;) for their performance!
And yes, a great party it was! Completely blown away by everything. It was worth the trip from the Netherlands!!!
Opeth and Katatonia were amazing and I also enjoyed the Swedish singer-songwriters in the pub. Stefan, thank you very, very much!
Sadly, I missed Comus due to almost spray painting the boat with my uber tasty puke due to the rocking, but I personally thought Mats & Morgan were absolutely jaw dropping. Not to mention Thordendal playing special defects live - which is likely to be the only time it is ever performed infront of an audience.
A truly amazing experience. Highlight was definitely an amazing performance by Comus. They sounded unbelievably good, especially after 35 years of not playing together. Opeth, Katatonia, Anekdoten all put in fantastic performances as well, though it was a little hard to stay standing with the boat rocking from side-to-side during Katatonia's set ;). Thanks Stefan for making the Melloboat happen!
