CD. It's fairly unusual for a band to include two audio tracks and then include
live video recordings from gigs. It's not a bad idea, really. Points scored for
the Polish black/death/thrash outfit Pandemonium for this stunt.
The entire thing easily backfires, though, if the material included is really
that impressive. The two audio tracks from the new album ('Misanthropy) are
decent enough. Solid songwriting, alright production and fine performance. It's
not my favourite brand of metal, not exactly anyway, but as I said, decent
The live material is less impressive. Apart from the last track, Frost, the
quality of both film and sound leave much to be desired. I'm thinking it
would've been better to focus on making one more professional video and make an
effort of stunning the viewer/listener.
Visit Pandemonium's website and judge for yourself, but this promo has exactly
converted me into a fan.
