Editorial Reviews

The infamous Gorgoroth gig in Krakow, Poland (1st February 2004) finally will see the light of day! Gorgoroth, Norwegian black metal band, drew the attention of the international media in early 2004 after their show in Krakow. They were accused of "offending religious feelings" during the gig, as well as suspected of breaching Polish law concerning the protection of animal rights by using severed and impaled heads of sheep as part of their stage design. The DVD has the Krakow show as the main feature. Additionally, it include bonus video material - Live at With Full Force Festival, Leipzig, 2000, biography, discography, photo gallery, desktop images, web links, Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound and more!!!!

Filmed at the same polish TV studio in which Behemoth recorded his debut dvd just 4 years before, this gig captures Gorgoroth at their prime, raw as always albeit introducing some subtle harmonies....in a brutal way,that is to say . With an extra guitarrist to beef up the already insane sound, and THE most blasphemous mise-en-scene in the history of rock music; naked crucified people, both male and female, barbed wire, sheep and pig heads on poles and piled up on stage and gallons of fake blood and tons of smoke darkening an excellently-lit stage will make sensitive or religious people turn their stomachs LOL ! Only downfall is that the concert is only 55'long but that's way more than your ears will be able to take if you play this like it deserves: MEGA LOUD .

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 !!!

all the attention that this show had got back in 04 and you thought that this dvd would never get released but here it is. i think they did put on a great show for this dvd and they really did make this a big special performance.the dvd sounds good i think and they did perform alot of great songs though one thing that was disapointing about this dvd is they didn't perform anything from the pentagram album but i think the reason why is because gaahl wuln't be able to pull off those kinda vocals. but anyway they do play a good amount of old songs but on some songs gaahl doesn't sound that good his voice gets kinda bad and some of the songs that pest had sang on gaahl didn't sing the songs as good but he tried and they still sound good though and its not his fault i think some of the bestsongs performed on here is forces of satan storms profetens apenbaring unchain my heart blood stains the circle but every song is good on here. and the guitars sound great infernus plays the riffs like only he can though there is another guitarist aswell which is Apollyon. though it seems like infernus is the only one that really headbangs and rocks out while playing the guitar but some people may not really care about that but he is interesting to watch when he's headbanging because it just fits with a metal show. but anyway gaahl sings and has such a presence and the way he often turns his head and looks its cool and lets talk about the stage show the sheep heads all over the place and the nude models wich feature both female and male models on crosses which do help with the mood of the show the two female modelsdo catch your eye when the camera is on them. and i should mention that Kvitrafn really does a good job with the drums he nails them all very good.Read more ›

Nothing about this DVD--nothing--is less than fantastic. Incredible. Essential. Gorgoroth are one of those elite bands (like Satyricon and Enslaved) that seem to change the world somehow every time a new product bearing their name hits the shelves. Presented here is the full live set from 2004 that got the band in severe hot water with political and religious authorities due to their stage set, plus a plethora of bonus material--live footage from 2000, photos, bios, discography, extras for computers, etc. Musically, Gorgoroth are nearly untouchable: the band is on fire, the sound and mix are fantastic, the crowd reaction is insane. Visually, again, Gorgoroth know the score: crucified figures, nude except for nun's habits over their heads; severed/impaled sheep's heads; fog; fire; makeup; lights... even KISS hasn't displayed this much showmanship in at least 2 decades. Live DVDs wouldn't be such a tough sell to casual fans if they all followed this one as a template.

A fantastic concert film for fans of either Gorgoroth or black metal in general. As far as black metal concert video's go, the sound and video quality is amazing. The mix was very good. Every instrument comes through perfectly clear. The show its self is great, a realy good overview of the bands musical history (although nothing from the new album as it was filmed in 2004). The special features were very good also, especialy the bio's, as i was very happy to discover the make of guitar Infernus uses (Eugen for those interested).

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.

The release date on this kept getting pushed back, so I was surprised when it actually showed up in my mailbox after having it pre-ordered since forever ago. Apparently this caused a scandal in Poland due to obscenity charges involving all the naked crucified people and sheep heads on stakes.

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.
