4 stars Very good double live album, unfortunately a farewell concert! Good selection of classic original tunes of the band, as "Heart of the ages" , "Mourning the death of Aase" "299796 km/s" "Omnio", "Karmakosmik", "Closing in", as well as covers - "White rabbit" (Jefferson Airplane) and "Epitaph" (King Crimson) showing respectively the psychedelic and prog influences of the band. In general, the playing is good and powerful as the rhythm session, rhythm guitars, and the melancholic male vocals, but I was particularly impressed by the female vocals of Synne "Soprana" Larsen, I think as good as or better than her performances in the studio albums - listen to "Mourning the death of Aase" (A Great Gig in the Sky - Pink Floyd´s heavy influence) and "Karmakosmik". Unfortunately one of the soloing guitar is out of tune in the track# 2 of CD1 at 7:40 onwards and soon they finished the track possibly ashamed, but later the guitarists get better and play OK, including the nice and atmospheric effects and riffs. Sadly this is the last performance of this innovative and awesome Norwegian band that has adapted and included heavy psychedelic and progressive influences to their doom metal origins resulting in delightful music. I hope someday they reunite!!!!!
