Impaled Nazarene Issue Live Album Update

Finnish Black metallers have issued the following update:

Here is the update about our live album and let me tell you, somebody out there seem to be against this album a lot.

Original plan (as it was announced here earlier) was to record three shows in Italy. Things got, well, really fucked-up. Our first show was in Milan and we had flights via Paris with Alitalia. We arrive to Milan, our luggage does not. After spending (read fighting) hours there, we manage to get info that some of our luggage will arrive later that day. Well, we got some stuff but our guitars and bass remained in Paris.

We borrowed equipment from support band and did our best, the show itself was great, fantastic crowd. We did record it but something was wrong and we got only 8 drum tracks on tape, nothing else.

We said “fuck it, we still have two shows left”. We arrive to Sicily next day and it turns out that the mixing console of the club is so dated that it does not have digital outputs for our recording gear. The same thing was in Ascoli, the last show, no digital outputs on the mixing console. We could not believe our bad luck. And this was just the beginning of this misery…

Well, we had a show in Stockholm, Sweden, a week later. We made sure that their mixing console was up-to-date, got an excellent backline and all was well. Until some cocksucker decides to take out electricity while we are on stage. We were near the end of our set and suddenly power is cut off. After ten minutes or so, power is back on and we do rest of our set. We get off stage and then our soundman breaks the news: We have exactly THREE songs on computer (digital recording, you see), rest was lost during power break. We were like what the fuck.

So we said, we do have two shows in Russia, let us record them. Great country to do a live album, insane audience. Once again we check all the shit to make sure that we can actually record both of the shows. We meet everybody at Helsinki railway station and there comes our soundman without recording gear. We are like “what now?” and well, let´s just say that thanks to somebody (not our soundman), we did not get the gear we were supposed to get. Somebody fucked up big time. Off to Russia sans recording gear.
