Features 2 live shows recorded in Japan during 1992 and 2000. Both with excellent visual & audio quality, especially when considering the technology limitations of the time. Also includes a band photo slide show from 1984-2004 plus a 66 minute audio CD with many previously unreleased tracks. The Sabbat lineup on these two live shows was: Gezol (bass/vocals), Temis Osmond (guitar/vocals) & Zorugelion (drums). Over 159 minutes of Sabbatical Blacking Metal!
"If you take a look at the world map of barbaric metal, in almost every country you will surely find one or more well-known acts... As they say, from Sweden came Bathory, from England came Venom, and from Japan came Sabbat!!
In 1983 a few metal maniacs decided to start a band called EVIL. After some small line up changes the following year they abandoned the name Evil and Sabbat was born! From that time until the present day, Sabbat has followed the ancient metal way much like the legendary Samurai warriors... Always honest and never following trends. Live by the sword, die by the sword!
This DVD set has been unleashed to honor this great band and show their fans the true Blacking Metal spirit of these Samurai warriors in a live setting. Forget about high quality sound, huge studio productions, this is metal as it should be: rough, barbaric and evil. This is metal. This is Sabbat!" -Bart Gabriel, Hard Rocker Magazine
