ECLIPSE – Viva La VicTOURia (2020)
Swedish hard rock wonders ECLIPSE will release their first ever official live release, ‘Viva La VicTOURia’, which was recorded at the Trädgårn venue in Gothenburg, Sweden on 21st December 2019 during a tour in support of their tremendously successful current studio album, ‘Paradigm’.
“We’ve talked about properly documenting a live show for ages. Well, if anything good came out of the pandemic that brought touring to a halt, this is it.” Thanks to this record, ‘Viva La VicTOURia’ will live forever, although it ended up being our shortest tour,” says vocalist/guitarist Erik Mårtensson.
“Fans have asked us for a live album and video for a long time now. Well, here it is. Eclipse live, raw and naked. Enjoy!”
Bonus material on the CD and limited edition 3xLP formats of this release include the studio track ‘Driving One Of Your Cars’ (a Lisa Miskovsky cover), acoustic versions of ‘The Downfall Of Eden’ and ‘When The Winter Ends’, as well as three live tracks from the band’s ‘Live from the Quarantine’ pay-per-view special, which was recorded at Studio Grondahl in Stockholm on 1st April of this year.
ECLIPSE kills, and even more live. Having a top producer in Mårtensson, obviously the sound quality of this recording is top notch. And you find balance with a studio track and more relaxed acoustic versions.
Great release. Highly Recommended.
