Brazil's KRISIUN Talk About Upcoming DVD Release

Brazilian extreme metallers KRISIUN have crafted not just a new album, "AssassiNation", but a full-length DVD, entitled "Live Armageddon", as well (both slated for a Feb. 21 North American release via Century Media).

The band's first DVD, "Live Armageddon" documents their decimating stage performance. "It was the best concert footage we ever filmed," says guitarist Moyses Kolesne about the recordings from Poland's Metalmania 2004 festival, which comprise the first 45 minutes of the DVD. "The crew was really professional. When they filmed our performance, the stage was set up with only our backline, so the stage looked great. The set we recorded we'd aggressively been playing on the European tour with MORBID ANGEL, so the songs were really tight, and the crowd gave us a great response. We weren't able to have a soundcheck before we played, but we still had no wimpy overdubs on the final product. It's just us blasting through a really strong set."

"Live Armageddon" also includes 12 songs filmed at a live show in KRISIUN's hometown, Sao Paulo. It also contains three bootlegged songs from KRISIUN's 2001 Wacken Open Air Festival appearance. Moyses continues explaining why the band chose to use this footage: "A German friend of ours, Alex, shot this footage. It's a little raw, but what you see is that we are having a great time, and that the crowd is just going nuts. There is this huge moshpit, and the sound is really strong." Wrapping up the DVD is footage from the "Works of Carnage" recording sessions and the "Murderer" video clip.

KRISIUN will be touring North America with MORBID ANGEL and BEHEMOTH on "The Monsters of Chaos Tour" beginning in early April. Complete concert listings can be found at this location.
