Vader - The Darkest Age
Review: Vader play their songs almost exactly as they exist on record, specifically their first "The Ultimate Incantation." There are recorded outros/intros and brief moments of the band speaking. The whole set is one track on the CD, with long pauses of crowd noise between songs, to give you the real experience of being there.
1. Macbeth (Intro) - Fades in through noise and shouting for almost seven minutes. Kind of cool however keyboards and marching music.
2. Dark Age
3. Vicious Circle
4. Crucified Ones
5. Demon's Wind
6. Decapitated Saints
7. From Beyond (Intro) - Intro from Morbid Reich; atmospheric keyboard outro with voices, pretty insane but not really that unlaughable.
9. Reign Carrion
11. Breath of Centuries
12. Omen (outro) - Monks chanting with some symphonic accompaniment, breaks into operatic prayer with crowd chanting what sounds like "Block that Kick" over the brassy recording. This is entirely laughable and it's sort of cool.
13. Hell Awaits -- Competent playing fit into the Vader style of this Slayer standard. Brief energetic introduction in Polish which sounds really cool, but I have no idea what he's saying.
