CD review RPWL ‘Live From Outer Space’

RPWL step by step rose to one of the most important representatives when it comes to Prog Rock hailing from Germany. The band, with their homebase in Freising, has a history that goes back to the year 1997, tthe starting point of the band that evolved out of another band called Violet District.

After having premiered in 2000, RPWL could increase their fan base constantly with their latest longplayer ‘Tales From the Outer World’ entering the German Top 50. Their latest studio album was supported by touring activities with shows all over Europe. Core of these concerts was the entire ‘Tales From the Outer Space’ album and the first half of the set was dedicated to their latest longplayer.

What makes this live release to a partly new experience is the fact that the band doesn’t solely reproduce the songs of the album. Kalle Wallner and band mates appreciate jamming and improvising, which gives the tunes performed that night partly a new touch. Together with a very well-done sound the live album is a great listening experience. It’s a treat for your ears, also utilizing the capabilities and opportunities provided by the venue.

The base for this release is the set RPWL performed in Cultuurpodium Boerderij in Zoetermeer, NL. The venue has all the prerequisites in place for hosting such a concert. In front of passionate fans of progressive Rock music, RPWL celebrated together with their fans a fantastic evening that is now available for everybody in various formats.

‘Live From Outer Space’ is a great live album, showcasing the latest and greatest of RPWL. If you missed the guys on tour here’s the chance to catch-up.
