Enthusiastic fan from the first time I heard them (here on Dime), these guys are my personal new hope of the decade, the next best but more psychedelic Porcupine Tree !!! (Just really thinking about filing them under PROG)
Hey, a band with 2 (TWO) men on synth/keys is a MUST (at least to me ;-) ...

KRACH AM BACH is a nice little beneficial Festival, somewhere between Münster and Bielefeld, limited to 2500 people (and sold out)
and this was the final concert of the first day. They started in heavy rain (in the beginning you can hear the rain on my umbrella, and a nice young lady praising it ... oh, well, what moron keeps taping, when a girl came crawling under his umbrella, instead of starting a chat or getting some drinks ... guess that one must have been me ... please, hit me, ... anybody !!!) but that rain stopped after just a very few minutes.
Sadly they did not use the possibility of playing a whole long set (would had been ok with the management) but only did this short but great festival-set.

The sound-quality of this one is very good, although I'm not 100% happy with it, it sounds a LITTLE distant and if I raise the heights any more I got loss of flesh !
hmm, but this should do it for now ...
So I did my share of EQing : raising the heights AND the lower mids, and also adding (not so much) on the bassdrum + a little usual mastering-compression

no Cover-artwork, but some video-screenshots are included

Support the artists!
Buy their official releases, merchandises, and especially their concert-tickets !
And if you want to support them most effectivly :
Buy their stuff at concerts directly FROM the artists or via their homepages !!!

Keep it lossless (if possible - This is no holy grail, but it would be nice to keep the quality for all future listeners!)
Trade freely!
