Dream of an Opium Eater was one of the greatest bands at Wacken 2008. They played instrumental songs accompanying silent movies made by Norwegian filmmakers. The musicians are Ben Calvert from Killing Joke, Ivar Bjornson from Enslaved, Reuben Gotto from Twin Zero / Johnny Truant and Julia Ruzicka from Million Dead.
They have not performed other than on a couple of big festivals and now they will perform again during Roadburn 2010 in Tilburg, The Netherlands!
This will happen as a part of the mighty Enslaved being Artists in Residence at Roadburn 2010.
Other amazing things happening because of this:
A Shining/Enslaved double concert
A Trinacria performance (including, among others, Maja S. K. Ratkje and Ivar Bjornson) invited by Tom Gabriel Warrior (curator of a Roadburn 2010-program)
In other words: it’s going to be awesome @ roadburn 2010! The only bad thing is they raised the ticket price from 100 Euros to 145 Euros…
