4 stars Yesterday I have received this DVD. After no luck in finding it in any european store, I've ordered it at Aquarius Records (

Shipping was fast (USA to Italy in 14 days) and price was cheap ($22.38 including shipping fee).

I highly recommend anyone enjoying Koenji Hyakkei to get this DVD: the band is fully capable of playing the entire Anger Shisspa even faster!

But if you like KH, you know that it is not just about the technique.. Either you find them amusing or not, but if you do, looking at them while playing their songs gives you an excellent feeling.

The drummer has an easy flow whatever he does, even when playing some complex line while yelling intricates lyrics. The keyboardist is precise and energetic. The bass player is astoundingly rich in his sound. The reed player is somewhere in between improvisation and Hey-I-Know-Exactly-What-I-Am-Doing-And-I-Will-Do-It-Again. The soprano has great voice and a disquieting presence.

The set is quite basic, with cheap video editing, but the sound is clear and the bare images are satisfactory enough.

Warholizer | 4/5 |
