There are few Black Metal bands that will be remembered after the hype ends, not many will actually see Black Metal as the increasing phenomenon that it is today, but I'm sure of one thing, people will be talking about Marduk 100 years from now, the insane Black Metal band of epic proportions that created the most blasphemous and intense cuts in the entire metal history.

The band has a lot of Live resources actually, between DVD's and CD's they have almost 10 to this day, but not one compares to this impressive piece of work. "Warschau" contains more than one hour of the best kind of Black Metal in the market right now, 17 balanced cuts that deliver both intense brutality and shivering melodies, it's the perfect album for the old and the new fans of the band.

The band sounds incredibly solid, it's an impressive performance to be honest and the music keeps flowing through the speakers like black blood dripping from a sharp knife. The brilliant execution and the flawless production (for a Live album) makes this album perfect for every metal collector, not to mention this is an absolute must for the band's aficionados.

It's hard for me to say if a DVD would be better for us the fans, I do prefer the CD because it's better to attend to the concert for the imagery and the show (but that's a personal opinion)ůSo anyhow, this live album is way better than anyone could expect, get it on Regain Records right now, their edition is really amazing.

Rating breakdown
Performance: 10
Songwriting: 9
Originality: 8

I prefer live albums to DVDs too, and I suppose for the same reason as you.

I'm not really a fan of Marduk, but I'm going to check this out, just because they are so f*cking intense live.
