Do we need to introduce this band? Magnum already exists since 1972. Yours truly just walked out of his diapers. We get a live version of their latest album for which they toured in 2014. They open with ‘Live ‘til You Die’ from their last CD. I must say that it sound nipping. Which setlist do we get? (Only) three songs from ‘Escape from the Shadow Garden’. The rest are songs from (and before) their SPV/Steamhammer period. We get some ‘oldies’ like ‘Vigilante’ and ‘Kingdom of Madness’. Luckely no ballads like ‘Must Have Been Love’ or other minor work from the late 80’s. This is a well balanced set that rocks. Of course they already have many live albums out. When you don’t have a live album of them or you don’t know them that well, then this is an ideal starter. Also released as a double LP.

TRACKLIST:
1. Live ‘til You Die
2. Black Skies
3. Freedom Day
4. Dance of the Black Tattoo
5. Blood Red Laughter
6. Unwritten Sacrifice
7. How Far Jerusalem
8. Les Morts Dansant
9. Falling For the Big Plan
10. All England’s Eyes
11. Vigilante
12. Kingdom of Madness

Moeten we deze band nog voorstellen? Magnum bestaat al sedert 1972. Toen kwam ondergetekende net uit de pampers. Hier krijgen we een live registratie toen ze met de gelijknamige cd ( Escape from…) in 2014 toerden. Ze beginnen met het openingsnummer van deze cd. Het moet gezegd dat het vinnig klinkt. Wat krijgen we te horen? Drie nummers (slechts ?) uit hun laatste album, aangevuld met nummers van voor en tijdens hun SPV/Steamhammer-periode. Ook ‘oudjes’ zoals Vigilante of Kingdom of Madness staan er op. Gelukkig geen ballads zoals Must Have Been Love of enkele minder sterke nummers uit de jaren 80. Dit livealbum heeft een evenwichtige set en klinkt vurig. Natuurlijk heeft Magnum al talloze livealbums in zijn catalogus staan. Heb je nog geen livealbum of ken je het oeuvre van deze band niet zo goed, dan is dit wel een goede aankoop. Ook verkrijgbaar op dubbel-lp.
