This is a festival-audience-recording !
So, there is -of course- the classical, inevitable audience chatter during the whole concert,
but except some fanatical shouts here and there it is more or less in the background.
Sadly enough you can hear the second stage in the far distance playing some boring goa-boom-boom during quieter parts, SORRY !

The slight distortion of the bass in the beginning of "O-I" was part of the concert coming from the PA !
The beginning of "Throbbe" has 2 or 3 tiny little points your ears might stumble over, where I had to edit some harder MD-bumps.

All in all I consider this a very fine recording and I did my best to enhance it to the optimum (twice), but judge yourself (samples included) !

To enjoy the original-head-recording completely I recommend listening via headphones !

cover-artwork is added, but is not in best quality, cause I had to make a screencopy from another program (no way to convert)

Support the artists!
Buy their official releases, merchandises, and especially their concert-tickets !
And if you want to support them most effectivly :
Buy their stuff at concerts directly FROM the artists or via their homepages !!!


Keep it lossless (if possible - This is no holy grail, but it would be nice to keep the quality for all future listeners!)
Trade freely!
