Lamentations (Live at Shepherds Bush Empire 2003) is Opeth's first live DVD, 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 DVD also includes a documentary on the making of both Damnation and Deliverance. The documentary covers both albums because they were recorded at the same time. A 2-disc CD version of the live recording was released in 2006 in a collector's edition slipcase.
The only song that was played from albums prior to Blackwater Park was "Demon of the Fall" (from the album My Arms, Your Hearse) as an encore song. This song was not filmed for the DVD. Licensing issues with previous record labels prevented this from happening at the time of the disc's release.
The recording is generally regarded as having exceptionally clear and beautiful sound and visual quality, although Allmusic reviewer John Serba complained of the ubiquity of shots from what he termed the "Åkerfeldt Orifice Cam", showing close-ups of the singer's mouth and nose in excruciating detail.
This was the first Opeth release with Per Wiberg, who officially joined Opeth on Ghost Reveries.
