I had a chance to view this DVD recently and it is just amazing!

The sound is crystal clear. It has the atmosphere of a live performance, since it has been played live, unlike some DVD releases that have been so obviously re-played in a studio.

The show was spectacular. Band members had excellent costumes. They also had lots of bizarre appearances on the stage, including a fat chearleader that danced with a skeleton and a belly dancer with an old-Persian-like beard and moustache! There are some video effects as well.

This video has an excellent freak circus atmosphere. Arcturus has always inspired me in that way. If someone asked me to visually describe the music of Arcturus, this would be it!

Anyway, I've seen the guys live and I can say that it was one of the best concerts I've been to. There were not as much bizarre visual effects, but they sounded as well as on this DVD. These guys are one of the best in avantgarde/prog metal genre, as they are very talented musicians with excellent playing skills.

This DVD is a must-have for everyone into Arcturus music. Highly recommended!

the DVD features 5.1 surround sound (all regions playing)....everyone is in top form! this DVD is one of my favorites in my collection-easily! I never understood why people even doubted Vortex's vocals, they are phenomenal! he hits every g#@damn note right on and even adds some of his own. The live versions of the songs are stunning. Both guitarists are great players (as is everyone else, although I think Hellhammer is triggered, but that is a small complaint really as he sounds AWESOME) If there is no other dvd you buy this year, you will be very pleased with this one. I know I am....

OH MY GOD!

the solos are amazing! (both guitarists and Stinar- keyboards)soooo much feeling and great technique!

the version I got comes in a cool tin box with a sheet that claims:

"Arcturus, the third brightest star in the night sky, crashes to earth this eve, September 17th, 2005. The intergalactic space pirates emerge from their volume vessel and illuminate the landscape of their ancestral earthling's homeland of Oslo, Norway. Witness their infinite space odyssey, performed here during the Sonic Solstice, as they push their art to the outer limits".....

do yourself a favor- buy this!

Although I bought this DVD elsewhere, you can probably buy with confidence as any version available in the US is a region-1 and will play as did mine (which I bought in Georgia a few weeks ag). The package itself is great - it comes in a tin box, and the performance is as good as expected from Arcturus, which is to say brilliant with some entertaining dancers in wild costumes. There are also some neat special DVD effects such as many shots of outer space and starfields superimposed on the image. Yes, it's a shame they didn't release a DVD when Garm was in the band, but I have no real complaints about Simen. Also included is some fun rehearsal footage and a music video. Worth the purchase in my opinion.

My only complaint was that i found this while looking for the CD version, and was expecting a CD, yet received a DVD instead. Other than that, pretty good DVD.
