Armageddon Over Wacken Live 2004

Year: 2005
Format: CD
Label: Armageddon
Genre: [Heavy Metal/Thrash Metal/Death Metal/Black Metal/Power Metal/Hard Rock]
Overall Rating: 5.5
Music: 5.0
Production: 6.5

Successful recording of live shows is one of the hardest forms of recording to master. There are so many different things that may fail. Nevertheless, Armageddon Over Wacken releases are quite well-recorded. The recordings strive to reproduce every nuance of the original performances, thus making distinction between the artists.

The variety of artists and bands on Wacken 2004 is laudable... Everything from Death, Black and Thrash Metal to Power and Traditional Metal is covered on this 3 CD-collection. The last CD is dedicated to Underground acts, but it was excluded from this promotional copy.

The main goal of Armageddon Over Wacken releases is to reflect the festival atmosphere in an authentic way. Thus producer Lars Ratz only used the real audience recordings containing the noise of 40 000 metalheads on 'Armageddon Over Wacken Live 2004'. Mostly the sounds are quite good, but few artists don't sound too good live (not to mention that some artists don't belong to my personal favourites).

Basically Armageddon Over Wacken Live 2004 is quite moderate live release. It can be either used for discovering new artists and bands or enjoying the Wacken 2004 festival whenever you want...

Release date: March 21st, 2005
