Swedish metal band Opeth along with French metal group Gojira were in Colorado on Thursday for a co-headline at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The bands were joined by support act the Devin Townsend Project. The picturesque venue was the perfect setting for Opeth’s sprawling compositions and Gojira’s environmentally conscious lyrics.

Devin Townsend Project got the night kicked off playing songs like “Stormbending” and “Failure” from their 2016 album Transcendence. Gojira also featured heavily with songs from their latest record, Magma, including “Only Pain,” “Silvera,” “The Shooting Star” and “Pray.” Opeth delivered more of a career spanning set with songs from their latest album Sorceress including the title track, “The Wilde Flowers,” and “Cusp of Eternity,” but also older favorites like “Ghost of Perdition” and “In My Time of Need.” Opeth closed out the night with the title track from their 2002 album Deliverance.
