This one’s special. I might have heard worse-sounding soundboard recordings. Of course there are missing parts to the frequency spectrum, and yet it’s just so damn cool sound-wise. It may be worth it not to look at the screen even because the camerawork is somewhat jumpy.
Whatever. It’s taken from a recent Imaginations show in Japan; not the full album tracklist, obviously, ending with The Script for My Requiem. As honest as it can get, really. Showcases beautifully how Hansi can move in a single breath from those almost-Baroque, ornate and vulnerable cleans of his to a ferocious distortion, remaining hypermelodic throughout. “Too much character,” some would say. But who would deny the skill?
