Where The Devil's Live DVD

Review by Larry Toering

First of all I have to say that watching bands play live in Polish venues can be quite a sight indeed, as they're some of the most beautiful theaters in the world. This band is one interesting act, with a likening to modern prog bands such as Riverside, and even Porcupine Tree, yet with a classic nod to bands like Yes, as well. There are an amazing amount of influences to be heard here, including jazz/fusion and even metal. But make no mistake, this is prog at its European finest. The set is highly diversified between a few albums of material, including a previously unreleased track titled “Hard Boiled Wonderland” for the fans to enjoy something they have not yet heard. It comes complete with bonus factors that range from a photo gallery to discography, interviews and even desktop images. Not only is this band intensely exciting to watch and listen to, but they have a mysticism that enchants all the more. It really doesn't get much better than this, so, this is one band that begs for mass exposure, and this title is one way to gain plenty of that. This title comes highly recommended for everyone from jazz and rock, to metal and prog lovers, as it is most intriguing and enjoyable throughout.
