Obituary - Frozen Alive [2007] [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Obituary

Like mighty steeds on a never ending course, these Death Metal Titans storm back on to the music scene after an 8 year hiatus. This is something that many Death Metal fans have been waiting years for - a DVD of Obituary, Florida's finest and pioneers of the genre, giving us a live performance recorded in excellent sound, in front of an exuberant mob of raucous Poles.

Here, in a 1971 live performance taped for Swiss-Italian Radio, he gives an incendiary account of the composer's masterpiece, the Sonata in B minor. Arrau recorded the same work in the studio a year beforehand (available as part of the Philips 50 series), and whilst it is indeed a great note perfect performance, I find it is somewhat tame and a tad sterile. This particular musical document just goes to show what twelve months on the road in support of a studio recording can achieve. Arrau has now honed this beast of a composition to perfection and starts to take risks in his performance. It's time to start getting excited,… Read more
