Dead!?-what's all the fuss
the magician | brooklyn, NY USA | 05/16/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"to be honest with you, i'm not too impressed with dead's vocals.
now, just to be fair, the offering is all around decent for a live show recorded 16 years ago.
but my personal problem with dead is he's off point with the lyrics and perhaps that's a biased opinion since i'm used to attila sings on dom mysteriis sathanas but also, live in leipzig isn't the only live recording of mayhem i have.
personally, i think maniac is the better singer and dead, well...dead's dead."
Interesting record from the dark past
atfield | At the south of Peru | 09/24/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"OK the sound quality is very low and the production is very poor, but hey this live show was recorded not to be an album is because of dead's death that the band decided to make a tribute CD to him and of all their live recordings they made, Live in Leipzig got the best sound of all so they decided to make this show an official live album.

Don't expect good sound of the musical instruments here. But dead's voice is very clear and loud. So I recommend this CD only to people that want to know how dead's voice was and how the band played some songs of de mysteriis with him.

If you are new with this band don't listen to this CD yet, get de mysteriis or deathcrush first and then if you like them and want to know about dead's voice then try this live CD"
Fitting live release for Mayhem
G.J. Head | Pittsburgh, PA | 09/22/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Generally, Black Metal live records and/or bootlegs leave much to be desired.

Considering the history of Mayhem, and especially what is known of this particular lineup, I think this is a fitting release and should sit alongside of the other official Mayhem releases as a full-length LP.

This stands out as a "Live" record simply for the fact that "Dead" is the vocalist on it. Considering his grim, necro outlook, I don't think a studio would have been a fitting place for him to lay down his vocals to begin with. That's not to say I wouldn't have liked to hear it anyway. With Mayhem, you sort of take what they give you and try not to ask questions...

The live setting captures his voice in a good way, and it's not a bad recording for live black metal show at all.

Pick this one up if you are a Mayhem fan."
