Again, so much editing. It sounds like a demo, not a live recording.
Apparently they didn't put info as to which song was recorded where in the booklet Prob just recorded the whole thing in studio and added some "Hello >city<" stuff from the actual shows. Which is stupid since they actually sound flawless live.
They definitely didn't put any info about which city the songs were recorded in, but a few were performed in Dusseldorf, at least one each in Ljubljana and Warsaw, and one somewhere in Italy. I think the editing of the video versions is a lot more extreme than the CD though. After watching the videos I was worried that the whole album would have chants of "Guardian, Guardian" before each song and then the song would be cleaned up and the crowd removed. That's not the case though. There's plenty of crowd singalong in the "hits" like 'Valhalla' and 'The Bards Song' so the live atmosphere definitely comes across. I do feel that Hansi seems to override everything at times though. So it's definitely not studio-like editing with cheering in between, which Testament were guilty of on their 'Dark Roots of Thrash' live album from a couple of years ago.
It's gonna take a while...
