Best viewed without Internet Explorer, in x resolution or higher. After all, the main concert Rhino - Breed The Chosen One (Vinyl, Album) are from the same gig. First up are the promo videos, which are done competently. Thankfully the pompous spoken word intro of Hope was removed for the video version. The live performance, the centerpiece of Broken Machine - Synthetisch Lebensform - Initialization release, does suffer as well.
It's not his fault really but his lack of poise is clear to see, and during spoken-word segments of some songs Shroud of Frost for example he just continues to use his weak growl as opposed to the spoken word style, but this may be more traceable to the limitations of a live environment.
I also have qualms with the song selection, as all but 3 songs were taken from The Silent Enigma. Another qualm I have is the song selection itself. Although they picked many of the stronger cuts from The Silent Enigma, some songs Shroud of Frost and the Sunset of Age most notably come trough poorly in the live arena due to the fact that partly what made those songs so brilliant was the usage of studio effects.
Another pet peeve is the inclusion of the song Kingdom from Sunset Of Age - Anathema - A Vision Of A Dying Embrace (DVD). This is one of my favourite songs by this band, and it seems ideally suited to a live performance as it contains the heaviest riff of this band's entire career.
