great to see them back, to me nightside eclipse is the best black metal album of all time so this is even more awesome for me on a personal level to see them perform the album live.
i can totally get why the band has chosen not to record a new record, musically tastes have changed and why saturate the band's history or reputation musically.
i think its really cool when a band goes and performs an album influential to their history, it demonstrates to the fans that the band does acknowledge how special and powerful it means to the fans, that being said im sure they wont come to the states and do a full blown tour especially with past visa issues with faust, but you can only hope that it might.
