Speaking on the band’s first official live release, guitarist Josh Rand says
“It’s with great pleasure that I get to announce the first ever official Stone Sour live record release. This is the Reno show in its entirety, just how it went down on October 5th, 2018. We’re extremely proud of the fact that it’s 100% live with absolutely no overdubs! It’s not perfect but neither are we. As a collector myself, I wanted this limited edition release to be very special. The vinyl is pressed on 180g, giving you the best audio quality possible, and is limited to 2500 copies worldwide. I hope you enjoy this as much as we did playing it.”

I can’t think of a more perfect way for reunited/reformed Death Metal legends Entombed to return than a live version of one of their most revered albums. Yeah sure Wolverine Blues and Left Hand Path a classics, but I think Clandestine Live (Threeman Recordings) is even better and serves as a timely reminder of just how influential this band is.Continue reading
For many people a live album is hardly worth bothering with. The performances can vary from being exact replicas of the studio recordings to blandly and barely played. However, a great live album is a thing of beauty, and any naysayers of the format are hard pressed to deny the electricity that jumps out of one’s speakers or headphones. Think of how enthralling Slipknot’s live material sounds, or how well crafted an Iron Maiden set-list can be and you’ll find the value in live recordings. Continue reading
I’m listening to Der Weg einer Freheit’s Live In Berlin (Season of Mist) and, while it is a masterful showcase for the band’s far encompassing sound and overall chops, I find myself questioning the nature of live albums as a concept. Again, there’s nothing wrong per se with this October 14, 2017 recording. Fans will be pleased with this ten-song package with tunes ranging from their self-titled LP all the way to 2017’s Finisterre (Season of Mist). Continue reading
