The Brazilian metal band Tribuzy, formed
and lead by Brazilian vocalist Renato Tribuzy has prior to this live
album only released one album; the all-star album featuring Bruce
Dickinson, Michael Kiske, Ralf Scheepers, Mat Sinner, Andreas
Kisser, Kiko Loureiro, Roland Grapow and Roy Z.
'Execution Live Reunion' features most of the
guests from the studio album as special guests live on stage
performing the songs live. One might wonder if there's a big need
for two almost identical albums...? Sure the running order is
different and the live atmosphere spice things up, but still...
Musically people, who know the studio album, know
what to expect - add some live atmosphere and some improvisation and
you'll have a pretty good impression of what's going on...
The ten live songs come across powerful and
straight in your face, the band seems to have fun on stage and they
deliver a good performance. The highlights include a ten minutes
version of "Absolution"
with Ralf Scheepers handling the vocals (Michael Kiske did them on
the studio album), the cool "The Nature of Evil" and when they close
the set with "Beast in the Light" with Roy Z. and Bruce Dickinson.
The album was recorded at
Credicard Hall, São Paulo, Brazil, produced by Roy Z. and Renato
Tribuzy, Roy Z. has also mixed this live album and the sound is very
authentic and honest, not over-produced or anything. The album also
includes "The Means", previously only available on the Japanese
version and is also available on DVD as well.
If you are into stuff like
(old) Helloween, Iron Maiden and Primal Fear, then I'd suggest you'd
give this one a chance as well...
