This is a cool live album from these long-running Greek black metallers, recorded in Sao Paulo, Brazil, back in August 2019 at the end of their 30th anniversary tour. As far as live albums go, I'd say this is a "quiet" one, just the way I like them in that you're aware it's live, but it's not loaded with stuff that you can't identify with unless you were there. Just enough crowd noise to get a good feel for the crowd, and the crowd interactions by the frontman are not too long. There's a lot of material here, as the length of the album suggests, so you get a good sample of what this band has to offer musically and, as such, this might even work as a good starting point if you're new to the band: find out what you like and seek out the other albums later. The band did a good job selecting their playlist as the whole album flows very well. An enjoyable live album, one that even calls for back-to-back listens with the band's signature atmosphere that just sucks you in and won't let go.
