BTW this is the best-sounding metal dvd I've ever watched and I own several hundreds !!!. To think some reviewer here stated that it sounded as if the sound had been captured by a single mike under the stage and wrapped in a jacket !!!! Man this DVD has the most detailed, powerful and dynamic sound this experienced listened has heard before !! The kick-drums kick your head and EVERYTHING, even the bass guitar, the cymbals, which are often critical in this type of music is heard and if a chord is played , you hear and you SEE it. That good. These guys produce a wall of sound not heard since Discharge.
The extras are your usual bootleg tracks, bio, discog photo gallery and desktop wallpapers for your PC, not really worth mentioning but WTF I don't need anymore !!
Get this or rot in hell !!!
Not much more I can say realy, as most black metal concert dvd's are of extreamly low audio/video fidelity (possibly deliberatly so), this stands out as being one of the best I have seen.
My first reaction upon putting it in the DVD player was that Gaahl sort of sounded like crap on "Procreating Satan." The rest of the band is sounding pretty good in general here. The stage setup and lighting is fairly amusing, with barbed wire, sheep heads, people covered in blood hanging from crosses, giant pentagrams, a lot of red light, and fire. The camera people make too much of this sometimes though, and there are countless shots of band members framed by sheep heads. This would be okay if it weren't done every three seconds.
As with the first time I saw the video for "Carving a Giant," something that initially struck me was that nudity and black metal just don't go together. Granted, it's naked people covered in blood and on crosses, but it still seems a bit incongruous.
This was also the first time I'd heard them doing certain songs that had Pest on vocals originally, and this occasionally shocked me, especially in the case of "Blood Stains the Circle," which is one of my favorite Gorgoroth songs due to the weirdness of the vocals on it. I feel like I'm nitpicking too much, and I realize Gaahl sounds different (and I like Gaahl's voice), but hearing this song done like this sort of disappointed me, it felt like it was lacking something. The vocals were just kind of flat and boring. Thankfully Gaahl does sound good on "Profetens Aapenbaring" and most of the rest of the songs really, but here and there I couldn't help but thinking that he has sounded better.Read more ›
