What can be left to say about a band such as the infamous Dissection? Main-man Jon Nodtveidt killed himself, so the “rebirth” was sadly fleeting. But this video is a fitting tribute to him and his band. It is supremely well-shot with the concert itself being widescreen (although inexplicably non-anamorphic!), and options for both Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 surround sound. I don’t think that these guys ever wrote a song that was less than awesome, so as impressive as this live set is, the only way I could have been 100% satisfied is had they played literally everything. But, that’s not to say that the set-list is short. The concert is about 90 minutes, and the Stockholm crowd is absolutely rabid the entire time. From beginning to end it’s a flawless, intense performance. The bonus features include a lengthy, in-depth interview with Jon (“…it became clear to me that I never want to be a part of society.”), photo gallery and the video for “Starless Aeon.” There is no way to recommend this enough.
