Review VANDEN PLAS ‘Live and Immortal’

The German prog metallers of Vanden Plas already have two live albums in their portfolio and now a new record is added with ‘Live & Immortal’. This album was recorded on December 30, 2016 at Kammgarn in Kaiserslautern. So it was a home game for the band and a good opportunity to record a live record in front of an enthusiastic audience.

Vanden Plas rock their way through a total of 14 songs and this release includes the complete concert. So you get enough Vanden Plas on ‘Live & Immotral’ and also a good flow of the tracks is provided.

The setlist from concert and now record covers the complete history of the band. From ‘How Many Tears’ from the debut album to ‘Chronicles of the Immortals: Netherworld’ everything is represented that was on the band’s album list at that time.

‘Live & Immortal’ has everything a good live album will require. Good songs, good sound, band in top shape and an enthusiastic audience, all this can be found on this release. If you dig high quality progressive metal, this live album should be on your shopping list. Rarely does one get the essence of Vanden Plas served up so compact and well done.
