Here is a really nice boxset celebrating 13 years of Watain, the boxset wich supposedly was going to be released April 25 just arrived a couple of days ago to my surprise, the regular DVD edition will be out on May 7. The boxset is a really nice one containing all kinds of stuff, first off the concert DVD, more about that one later, the complete 13 years celebration show on two Cd’s and also on two Lp’s, a nice book with pictures from the bands career, four postcards and also a handsigned (by all five members) certificate of authenticy. The boxset is limited to only 1000 copies, and i got copy number 37.
The DVD is both liveclips from the 13 years anniversary show in Stockholm mixed with interviews with singer Erik, i think that these kinds of DVD’s are, well, let say that about the interviews yes they are fun to watch the first couple of times but after that you wish they were put as extras instead of integrated with the live clips. I personally would have preferred a full on concert DVD. The disc itself is really good, nice filmed and you really get that live feeling, and to be able to watch it in my hometheatre on a 112″ screen in a really darkened room gives more of a feeling of being there than to watch it on a Tv in the livingroom. The only negative i think is the sound, you have option between 2.0 (stereo) and 5.1, but it is a bit low mixed so i had to turn up the reciever alot to get a satisfying volume and i would also liked to have a bit more compact sound.
Overall this is a really nice boxset and a must for any Watain fan out there!
