Ihsahn Posts "Scarab" Live Video Online

Ihshan has posted a video clip of the performance of the song "Scarab" at a show in Oslo, Norway, which can be viewed below. Mnemosyne Productions has issued the following statement about the video clip:

"From the first ever Ihsahn live show, we would now like to share the song “Scarab” from angL with you. Ihsahn is using a young and very talented band, Leprous, from our hometown as backing band. This is footage taken with our own camera. It was placed on top of a box behind the sound area, a box that did not particularly like the sound waves of the bass drum, so that is why it is a bit 'shaky' at times. Apart from that it turned out okay."

What a great song that was! I enjoyed watching this, however at first I thought the crowd was dead, but after awhile I simply figured some were just in awe; could go either way. A moment as simple as when the people raise their horns in the end gives a good feeling...even if it's mostly the people in front.

I dunno about everyone else but if you ask me, people in the back need to get with the
program :D

Jenny, sister. Black metal gig's do not always have to mean a mosh pit. Black metal has a porpouse far beyond just going to a show to mosh, and get drunk. Many people want to go to watch the show, and really take it in. It is not to say that a pit does not ensue, but it is not a must. I love to take in a black metal gig myself. There is a great specticle going on up on the stage. To miss the message is to miss the point. *nods*

You end up missing much of the fun if you do. I am glad I did not mosh when I saw Dimmu live.

Cynic, Ihsahn still has a message that should be heard on stage.

As always to each there own, but I think black metal deserves more attention than just moshing at gig's.

Kalis: Perhaps I didn't make myself clear. I don't expect the crowd to mosh and whatnot if they don't want to, I simply think that at the end of a performance the least the people in the back could do is show a sign of appreciation towards a band and their efforts; they could raise their hands or clap, or even give a small cheer if they'd like.

I must say that you are right indeed about taking in the music; people take it in their own way.

To mosh or not to mosh...that is the question!

Well there are times when I feel like jumping into the pit and times when I just feel like headbanging on the side with a cold one in my hand.

I like Isahn, but mostly just their tunes. I don't think I would pay to see them live, only because they look like they lack a lot of stage presence. Not that I can judge them solely by this video....but I can't blaim the crowd for sleeping >;.>;
