The "Italian Omega-Massif" release a live record after just two studio albums. The purpose of this company seems to be to document their most successful volume year to date, 2011. The "Maniacos" are considered in their homeland as a figurehead for instrumental post-metal, as also their compatriots from Ufomammut play it. In fact, the band, which has been in existence since 2004, has gained a considerable reputation within the scene and received above-average reviews, especially for "Icon". The live recording in Perugia is a complete set of their two albums. A rich sound booms out of the speakers, no genre sound mud, details are comprehensible. The band plays tight and heavy, offering almost a faithful performance of their dark sound universe. Live the southerners like to throw their instruments into the audience and play to physical exhaustion. Here you can get a glimpse of the emotional live power of their performance, but the destructive Lento show should still be experienced "in kind". A free download would have been perfectly sufficient.
